Cemetery damage help offered

By Mike Cotton, Town Reporter Friday 21st February 2014

FAMILIES who suffered damage to their monuments on the cremation plot at Bolton Cemetery are urged to contact Ardsley Crematorium.


A tree damaged around half a dozen ornaments when it fell as a result of high winds last Wednesday night.


Although the responsibility does fall on the families in such instances, Anthony Devonport, for the council's bereavement services says they may be able to help.


He said: "We are trying to contact the owners of the tree involved and others as they are not ours and fell from a garden nearby.


"Obviously we don't want something like this to happen again. We will try and help out."
