Goldfinch Grave Tending
Based in North Norfolk we are a locally-run service providing general upkeep & respectful visits of your loved ones final resting place on your behalf.
For many reasons such as busy lives, long distances and travelling being an issue, physically managing the task or maybe you find the emotional bearing of a visit to a grave or memorial is too much, we can provide on your behalf a dignified and caring service.
30 years working in hospitality has taught us the skills to provide thoughtfulness and attention to detail, always making our visits with the upmost respect to your loved ones.
We cover the whole North Norfolk district and visits can be made to observe all occasions and anniversaries such as Birthdays, Anniversaries, Mother’s Day, Easter, Father’s Day, Christmastime and where tending to a schedule we will endeavor to meet those dates specific to you and your loved ones.
You may book a ‘one-off’ grave tending visit or several visits throughout the year, these can be evenly spread or we can make a planned schedule for certain dates or anniversaries.
A typical 'one-off' visit will include -
Clearing of any previous decayed floral arrangements, debris, weeds or litter.
Grass trimmed and tidying of decorative aggregate.
Vases and ornaments cleaned on site.
Light-cleaning of the headstone (dependant on age and condition) with a mild environmentally friendly detergent.
A posy of fresh flowers left on the day and your personal message if required.
After the tending I will send you a ‘before & after’ photo of the visit.
Prices for visits start from £28.00
