What to expect
The new design will greatly improve the Rose Garden and enable it to be managed in a way that will allow us to properly respect and honour those remembered there.
The exisiting plaques will be retained, but, remembering that many whose remains rest here do not have a marker, we have put together a full record of names of all those at rest there.

The new planting scheme will have raised beds with new soil and plants so all existing planting wll be removed once permission to proceed has been given. The raised beds allow us to proceed without disturbing the ashes buried below.
Some families, reacting to the, previously, poor state of the garden, have planted their own shrubs and plants. If you have done this and wish to retain your plants, then you should contact us as soon as possible, as all existing plants will be replaced as part of the overall improvement plan.
