In many new sections of cemeteries there are restriction on the size of surrounds permitted to jut out from the headstone. The size is often limited to 3 feet, and at We Tidy Graves we offer a competitively-priced alternative. The price of marble surrounds can be substantial but the concrete screed version can be constructed from only £200. Contact us on 07718282816


Laying grass does give great neat results to a grave makeover especially after a recent burial. The roll-out grass/turf does need some TLC during the "bedding-in" period and this means a lot of water. Sometimes in Summer this can be quite challenging but this years very wet summer in Northern Ireland  has meant no long drought periods. In this example you can see the preparations  involved in the transformation.

Clean up and re-stone of a grave where some of the writing needed to be re-silvered as well. The stone is cleaned to reveal the original colour and new granite stones are flecked with white marble chips to give a neat overall finish.

After a grave has been opened and the soil and has been allowed to settled, it is then time for the interior to be re-capped or re-sealed before the decorative stones can be placed back again. The standard process begins with the grave being levelled and usually stones added to help with drainage. The levelled area is then recapped with re-inforced concrete and left for at least a few days to "cure" before the colourful decorative stones are added. This makeover usually costs approx £100 dependent on size of grave and the amount of preparation time.

Kerbs realigned and cemented


A graveside in needed of major renovation and the removal of thick layers of paint. Nothing worse than paint added onto stone in my opinion as the natural colour of the stone is so much better. The interior was cleared of soil and the sides cleared of weeds before extreme cleaning of the headstone and kerbs. The stone was angled-grinded back to clean removing years of paint layers. Decorative stones added a finishing touch and the job was complete.  Cost of renovation including labour and all materials £350
