Important Notice
Headstones at the top of the New Graveyard have been badly damaged by a large vehicle. This has caused great distress to the families, whose loved ones are buried in these graves. We appeal to people not to attempt to drive to the top of the Graveyard in large commercial vehicles as there isn’t enough room between the graves. If you are having work done by ‘Headstone & Monument ‘companies please advise them that they are not to drive to the top of the Graveyard or across the grass at the lower end. Thank you very much for your understanding and co-operation in this matter.
