RELATIVES of people buried in Great Malvern Cemetery are being invited to give their views on proposed new guidelines for the graveyard off Madresfield Road.

The Gazette reported last year that relatives were outraged after Malvern Town Council announced a crackdown on grave ornaments.

The matter was resolved later in the year after a working party of councillors, staff and grave owners was set up to revise the rules on the upkeep of graves in the cemetery.

Now the next stage is to revise the remaining cemetery guidelines. As part of this process, the council is inviting anyone with an interest in the cemetery, particularly those who have purchased graves in the last five years, to participate in this review .

Copies of the current guidelines are available from the council office on Belle Vue Terrace or the website. Comments should be sent no later than Wednesday, April 16.
