Memorial & Grave Maintenance Plans

Rowland Brothers offer a comprehensive grave care and memorial tending service, providing you with regular maintenance of the final resting place of friends, family and loved ones. We provide a range of high quality services, including regular upkeep of graves and plots, planting of seasonal bulbs and plants, flower displays and memorial refurbishment. So whether you are located too far away, are unable to manage the upkeep yourself, or simply find visiting too emotional, we can help you in the knowledge that the work will be conducted with both care and dignity.

At each scheduled visit all tending is undertaken by hand in keeping with the peace and tranquillity of the cemetery / churchyard by our specialist grave carers and includes the following maintenance:

  • Removal of weeds
  • Removal of all debris (old flowers, plants and other litter)
  • Washing of memorial pot liners
  • Light cleaning of headstone/memorial
  • Light washing of decorative aggregate
  • Light pruning of any bushes on the grave
  • A before & after photograph for your records sent via post or email
Fresh Flowers

We also offer these additional services:

Freshly cut flowers

Rowland Brothers can arrange for a choice of freshly cut flowers to ensure that the grave is looking its best which our specialist carer will hand deliver to your loved ones’ final resting place.

Planting of seasonal bulbs or plants

Our specialist grave carers will be pleased to plant out the grave with seasonal bedding plants or bulbs at any of your chosen tendings.

Memorial repairs and grave vases

If we discover that the memorial or kerb edging requires repair or additional maintenance, we can provide you with detailed photographs and a written report. In addition, we will inform you if we believe that the plot may require the replacement of old or ‘lost’ grave vases, the renewal of stone, pebble or slate chippings, or any turfing or top soil work.

We can provide you with a ‘no obligation’ quote to undertake any of these repairs, renewals or replacements which we can then complete during subsequent visits. A specialist monumental mason would carry out any repairs that may be necessary to the memorial or the inscription.

Special dates

You can choose to have your tendings carried out around special dates of your choice, perhaps to commemorate a birthday or anniversary.
