Cemetery Record Searches
Our Outside Services team conduct regular checks of graves within the cemetery for subsidence / sinking. After identifying which graves need top-ups, staff will schedule time to carry out these works.
We recognise that seeing the surface of a grave sinking can cause distress to the bereaved, it is unfortunately a 'natural' phenomenon that affects all cemeteries.
Please contact the office if your plot requires a top-up of soil after subsidence/sinking.
