Forget-Me-Not Grave Tending Services.

Keep the memory of your loved ones alive.

In today’s pressurised lifestyle we understand it can be extremely difficult to find the time needed to tend and maintain the final resting place of our nearest and dearest – you may live too far away, find it difficult to manage the work physically or have other circumstances that prevent you from doing this.

Established in 2002 and based in Benton, Newcastle upon Tyne, our service is designed to give peace of mind to family, relatives and friends.

We at Forget-Me-Not Grave Tending Services pride ourselves at being able to provide a personal and sensitive touch to ensure that the resting place of your loved ones is tended with dignity, respect and to the highest standards.

We understand you may have personal requirements, and we will be more than willing to discuss these with you provided that they are within local authority and church guidelines and regulations.

~ What We Do ~

Grave Tending

We maintain headstones to an exceptional standard, ensuring they do not become weathered into a state of disrepair. Epitaphs are cleaned to remove moss and lichen, and inscriptions re-gilded if they have faded, removing litter, washing gravel and flower vases.

Turf Care

We keep surrounding turf maintained and tidy with cutting, clipping and treating with weed and feed. We are experts in using loam and laying Rolawn® Blended Turf (or general purpose turf, if required). If a new plot is being tended, we will ensure the ground is professionally levelled, prepared and turfed.

Thoughtful Extras

Floral tributes can be placed on special dates, such as anniversaries, Mothering Sunday, Father’s Day and Christmas Day. New bulbs, plants and shrubs can be planted, existing plants fed and watered. Following each visit, a posy of fresh flowers and a personal message can be left. An email, with a photograph and details of the work carried out, will be sent to you. A pick up and drop off service is available for you, if required.

~ What You Say ~

The family asked Simon to refurbish a family grave which hadn't been looked after for many years. Simon did an excellent job of cleaning and securing the gravestone and laying turf. Throughout the process his communication was very good and the effort made in restoring the grave resulted in an outcome we were delighted with. We would highly recommend Simon's grave tending services. I have nothing but praise for Forget-Me-Not Grave Tending Services. Simon has not only put lovely flowers on the grave, but has cleaned the headstone so that it looks almost like new. He has also treated the surrounding grass. He is reliable and sensitive and has provided a first class service. I can therefore highly recommend him. Simon has been tending our family grave for several years now and has provided a reliable and regular service throughout the year. This has included cleaning the headstone, replacing weather-damaged plants and laying and maintaining the turf. I would be happy to recommend him. Glad that I found Forget-Me-Not. They have restored my parents’ resting place to a high standard, and I have them tending four times a year. Thank you for a first class service.
