Grave Maintenance And Grave Tending - A Satisfying Days Work In Peaceful And Beautiful Surroundings
By Francis G. Murphy

Grave tending services are quite different to many other sorts of work that one could carry out. For a start they are done in places where many people don't feel particularly comfortable possibly because death is one subject many people don't like to talk about. Another reason could be that so many negative things have been written and filmed about cemeteries that the very word cemetery conjurers up a scene of horror. When in fact nothing could be further from the truth.

When I am carrying out any sort of grave care services in my normal line of duties I am working in places that are quite magical. They are by the very nature of their use, quiet and contemplative places. Children are rarely seen playing there, bikes and cars are certainly not the norm and the people that are there generally are quiet and respectful. Most cemeteries that are at least 100 years old were built within the heart of the communities and are often attached to churches. This means that unlike may of the cemeteries that have been built in the past 50 years they are not to be found way out on the outskirts of town. They are places where the history of the town can be seen mapped out by the stories on the headstones.

Often when I am carrying out grave maintenance services such as headstone cleaning I discover stones with a whole family history in one single place. Father, Mother and children all in one final resting place. Very often these can be seen as tragic historical stories with the family wiped out by disease or genetic disorders. However some are just beautiful short tales of a husband and wife who now lie together in eternal peace. As well as being peaceful places cemeteries that have been cared for are also wonderful habitats for wild flora and fauna. The very fact that so few people visit these places compared to say parks means that wildlife can flourish undisturbed. Often as I carry out some grave tending I will stop and listen to the wide variety of birds who live happily amongst the headstones and memorials. Blackbirds, Sparrows, Thrushes and if you are lucky even the occasional Nightingales. In addition it is very common to see a host of other animals such as rabbits, squirrels and foxes.

More rural cemeteries, especially those whose walls and fences have become broken, will often be visited by larger animals such as deer or even wild bore. People go walking in parks and by the river and often drive miles from their homes to look for some peaceful piece of land in which to unwind and relax. Well the next time you think of doing that take a look at a map and find your local cemetery, the older and the larger the better. No parking charges, no hassle with people playing sports and cooking barbeques just peace, quite and wildlife. And if you are interested an entire history lesson all laid out in front of you and it's entirely free of charge. If in the course of your walks you see any grave maintenance work that needs carrying out then look up your local grave care services company and let them know. It helps to keep your local cemetery safe and tidy.
