Worcester Funeral Service - Grave Tending Service & Pricing

It is important to all of us that the final resting places of our loved ones look respectable at all times. We all want the peace of mind of knowing that the graves and memorials of our loved ones are being maintained in the dignified manner that their memory deserves.

Yet many of us are unable to physically do this important job ourselves. For reasons of age, distance or lack of tools, time or transport, we find we are unable to do all that is necessary to keep family graves and their memorials looking as well cared for as we would like.

The result is that the final resting places of those we loved often become unkempt, with memorials becoming dirty and inscriptions unclear. Our Grave Tending Service has been established to solve this problem for you and bring you peace of mind.

We decided to provide a premium Grave Tending Service, as many of our clients have expressed a need to ensure that graves throughout our area are maintained in their absence at a frequency stipulated by them. We will always try to accommodate personal preferences wherever possible.

On each grave tending visit we will:

  • Lightly clean the memorial to remove bird dropping, dirt and surface algae, using a non-toxic and earth friendly detergent.
  • Washing of vases and memorial pots.
  • Remove all dead flowers, plants, weeds and leaf litter.
  • Trim grass and tidy edges/borders.
  • Light pruning of heathers, shrubs and other plants if required.
  • Remove all debris.
  • Provide before and after digital photographs via email.
