Worcester, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 01, 2009 -- A unique grave and memorial tending service has launched today, providing caring maintenance across the UK. Headquartered in rural Worcestershire, they have a team of professional grave carers covering the country.
David Taylor, Managing Director of Guardian GraveCare, said: ''We recognise that there are many reasons why a family may want to leave the maintenance of the final resting place of their loved ones to a professional company.
The family may have emigrated, or moved away. Alternatively, they may be finding it difficult to manage the work, or simply find visiting too emotional. This means that too often graves become untidy, with memorials getting dirty and in some cases, even damaged.
Whatever the situation, we can help in the knowledge that the work will be conducted with both care and dignity.''
He went on to say: ''We provide a range of services, including upkeep of graves and plots, planting of seasonal bulbs and plants, flower displays and memorial refurbishment and have already had interest from as far a field as Europe, North America and Australia.
One thing that customers particularly value is that we take a digital photograph once the work has been completed, which we e-mail or post to them. This enables them to visually inspect the work, and to see the difference the visit on their behalf has made.''
Guardian GraveCare services start from Â£7.99 per month. -End-
