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 carer will deliver to your loved one’s final resting place at any of your chosen tendings. The cost of this service starts at just £17 for each placement (including the cost of the flowers). A range of bouquets and prices are available which we will be happy to send you details of at the appropriate time.
Planting of seasonal bulbs or plants
Our specialist grave carer will plant out the grave with seasonal bedding plants or bulbs at any of your chosen tendings for an additional cost of £25 per planting (including the cost of bulbs and/or plants). If you would like this service the cost can be added as a one off fee or spread over your monthly payments at £2.50 per month (Season, Season Plus and Monthly Care Plans).
We can source a range of memorial items such as vases etc which we will be happy to discuss with you and arrange should you require.
You can choose to have your tendings carried out around special dates of your choice, maybe a birthday or anniversary.
Memorial Repairs and Grave vases
If it becomes apparent 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.
