Main­te­nance of graves angers me

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

FUR­THER to the is­sue of K plot with the Parish Coun­cil and their pref­er­ence to have the graves grassed over as it would be eas­ier to main­tain – why on May 23 was the grass al­lowed to be 9 inches long be­tween the graves?

I re­turned from a week away and went up to tend to my hus­band’s grave on June 1 only to find that the grass had been cut leav­ing de­posits of grass on the graves and where strim­ming had taken place grass had just been left on the ground strands had blown all over my hus­band’s grave and left the area look­ing un­tidy and messy – this made me feel deeply sad and an­gry at the way the area was left as this was never the case when in­di­vid­ual own­ers looked af­ter K Plot.

Pre­vi­ously they re­ferred to these as “war graves” yet they do not main­tain them as “war graves”.

If the Parish Coun­cil does not have the time to main­tain them to a high stan­dard then please al­low us to have our in­di­vid­ual plots back so we can main­tain them our­selves – is it too much to ask?
