Grave Maintenance And Grave Care - 5 Tips On How To Keep Your Family Grave Looking Clean And Tidy
By Francis G. Murphy

Grave Maintenance in the UK was, once upon a time, taken care of by the local council but as with so many things these days if you are looking to the government to take care of any sort of grave services then you are sure to be disappointed.

Many people feel at a loss as to know what to do with a grave that has been neglected over the years and this article will give you some help and guidance as to how you can solve that problem.

As a result of population migration and the fact that people are now living much longer than they used to, trying to carry out any sort of grave care services for the final resting place of a loved one can be almost impossible. Families, especially large ones are no longer confined to the same continent let alone the same city or town so when funerals take place it is usually left to those who stayed closest to the nest to care for the family grave. This is all well and good with families who have a few generations living close by but impossible and somewhat unfair if it's down to just one or two people.

There are solutions to this dilemma and here are five tips which will help you to deal with them.

1) Keep your family grave simple. You only have to walk around your local cemetery to see that many years ago headstones and memorials were much larger and more grand. This was done in the main so that the families could show how wealthy they were especially in comparison to those graves around them. These days many graveyards limit the space you can have and are very specific about the size of headstone that you can choose. By keeping it simple it will be easy for any grave tending services company to keep it clean and tidy.

2) Choosing Granite over marble is generally recommended as it is a much more durable stone and therefore less likely to wear away. If you look at any number of old marble headstones that were originally supplied with lead filled letters you will see how the stone has worn away and left the lead exposed. This will eventually result in the lead falling out completely and having them replaced is very expensive.

3) Try not to select vases that are not an integral part of the headstone. unsecured vases and pots will inevitably be blown over or knocked down by birds or the local wild life. By choosing a headstone that has one or two integral pots you can be sure that the grave will not be littered with old flowers and perhaps broken glass.

4) The type of ground cover you choose can have a big effect on how much grave care will be required over the years. Grass or flowerbeds require a considerable amount of work annually whereas stone or slate chippings can look very smart and need little attention.

5) Seriously consider using a professional grave maintenance company to carry out your grave tending requirements. A good company will advise you on the most economic approach to keeping your plot clean and tidy. They will also offer a range of other services that will give you peace of mind, safe in the knowledge that the final resting place of your loved ones is as you would like it. It also means that all the family can make a financial contribution to the costs rather than it being left to one individual.
