Grave Cleaning and Maintenance

Caring for your grave or memorial

If you want a grave or memorial maintained by us, we need to check its current condition and location before we can do it.

The first thing to do is get in touch with us to tell us the location of the grave or memorial, and the name of the deceased.  We will then send you a form to fill in. 

The maintenance plan will start once we have the form and payment.

What you can expect in your maintenance plan

  • Cutting and upkeep of any grass
  • Weeding
  • Planting and plant upkeep
  • Memorial cleaning once per year (cold water wash only)

Please note it does not include memorial repairs or replacements which may have become decayed or damaged.

If more in-depth cleaning is required, this will be a specialist clean and there would be an extra cost from our stonemason (see additional costs below). 

Maintenance costs

The maintenance costs vary according to the plan you choose. We can help you find the most appropriate package for the type of grave. Our fees brochure will outline the costs for you.

Additional cleaning costs for amazing results

If you have selected a maintenance plan, it includes an annual memorial clean. This is a cold water wash only.

Our approved stone mason can carefully and expertly clean your memorial to an almost-new look and feel.

The stone mason will charge you extra money for this deep clean.  The cost of cleaning your memorial will depend on the size, age and amount of work needed.  The results can be amazing. Here are two examples of the results:
