Restoration works in Eastwood Cemetery

Renovation work is due to begin on the Children's section of Eastwood Cemetery next week.

Cemeteries

This work will level the area and mark vacant plots with flagstones. Grass will also be removed from around the plots and replaced with stone chippings. This will smarten the area and remove the need for future weed spraying and grass strimming.

Existing plots that have memorials with Kerb surrounds will not be disturbed. Grass will be removed from around the plot and be replaced with stone chippings.

The Council is also offering grey flagstones free of charge (if wanted) for existing children's plots that do not have any kerbs or memorials laid. 

Similar works have already taken place in the neighbouring ashes internment area.

ISS World, on behalf of the Council, will begin work on Monday 12 February. Work is likely to last for several weeks.

Councillor Peter Murphy, Portfolio Holder for Environment, said: "These works will help us to keep the memorial area clean, tidy and a pleasant place to visit. We will do all we can to minimise the disruption of these works and apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused."

Meetings are being offered to plot holders being affected by the work. To find out more information or enquire about replacement flagstones, please contact Bob Ollier, Parks and Open Spaces Manager, on 01354 602149 or at bollier@fenland.gov.uk.
