Each visit by one of our specialist grave carers includes the following general maintenance:

  • Trimming of grass around headstone and edge of plot
  • Removal of weeds
  • Removal of all debris (old flowers, plants and other litter)
  • Washing of memorial pot liners
  • Cleaning of headstone/memorial (this can cost from £100 or more, if conducted by a memorial stone mason).

Freshly cut flowers

You may wish to ensure that the grave is looking its best with the addition of a choice of freshly cut flowers which our specialist grave carers will hand deliver to your loved ones final resting place. The cost of this service starts at just £1.50 per month or £17 per annum (including the cost of the flowers).

Planting of seasonal bulbs or plants

Our specialist grave carers will be pleased to plant out the grave with seasonal bedding plants or bulbs at any of your chosen tendings for an additional cost of just £2.25 per month or £25 per annum (including the cost of bulbs and/or plants).

Photo Record

We take a digital photograph which we will e-mail or post to you. This enables you to visually inspect the work that we have carried out, and to see the difference the visit on your behalf has made.

Memorial Repairs and Grave vases

If we believe that the memorial or kerb edging requires some repairs and/or additional maintenance, we will provide you with detailed photographs and a written report. We can also provide you with a 'no obligation' quotation on any work that needs completing at subsequent visits, including the replacement of old or 'lost' grave vases, the renewal of stone/pebble/slate chippings, or any turfing or top soil work.

A specialist monumental mason would carry out any repairs that may be necessary to the memorial or the inscription.

Grave Locating Service

If you can provide us with the grave location number, we can easily find the location. But don’t worry if you don’t have this, we can locate it for you for a one off fee of just £12.

Special Dates

You can choose to have your tendings carried out around special dates of your choice, maybe a birthday or anniversary.

Discounts

A 10% discount is offered if one or more additional plots are tended at the same location.

A further 5% discount is offered towards any future works undertaken if you can recommend a friend or relative to us who chooses to book one of our Seasoncare, SeasonCare Plus or MonthlyCare tending plans.
