Worcester, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 15, 2009 -- Guardian Grave Care, the UK based grave maintenance company is bucking the current trend and looking to expand its network of specialist grave care staff.
Managing Director, David Taylor said: ''We already have wide coverage across the UK, but we are now looking for new grave care staff, especially those who have some previous gardening or grave maintenance experience.''
He went on to say: ''Right now, we are particularly looking for new grave tenders in the South East, South West and Scotland regions. All our new grave tenders receive detailed instructions on what we expect as far as work standards and quality is concerned, and we ensure that they always work within the guidelines laid down by cemeteries and church yards. The work particularly suits people looking for a part time role.''
Each visit by our grave carers includes the following general maintenance:
-Trimming of grass around the headstone and edge of the plot -Removal of weeds -Removal of all debris (old flowers, plants and other litter) -Washing of any memorial pot liners -Cleaning of the headstone/memorial.
We ask each of our grave maintenance operators to then take a digital photograph which we can then e-mail or post to our clients. This enables us to visually inspect the work that has been carried out, and allows the client to see the difference that the visit on their behalf has made.
If we believe that the memorial or kerb edging requires some repairs and/or additional maintenance, we ask the grave tender to provide more detailed photographs and a written report. We then provide a 'no obligation' quotation to our clients for the work that can be completing at subsequent visits, including the replacement of old or 'lost' grave vases, the renewal of stone/pebble/slate chippings, or any turfing or top soil work.
A specialist monumental mason would carry out any repairs that may be necessary to the memorial or the inscription.
