Closed churchyard

Clandown Cemetery is reached from the common via a narrow pathway to the right hand side as you look at the common from the roadway. The church is now a private residence and is fenced off from the old churchyard.

 

Maintenance of grounds

Although under the direction of Bereavement Services, maintenance of Clandown Cemetery is carried out by the local Neighbourhoods team rather than the Closed Cemeteries team - but all enquiries or concerns should be addressed to the main office of Bereavement Services at Haycombe.

The grass is cut fortnightly throughout the growing season and other works such as pruning, etc. are scheduled for the winter as needed.

 The council's arboricultural office keeps the trees under  a 3 yearly review and agrees minor works with the volunteers. All major tree works are carried out by the council's tree specialists

 

Graves

Bereavement Services carries out a 5 year rolling programme of memorial testing to ensure that memorials are preserved as well as possible. The council does not have the right to restore memorials, but it does have the responsibility to make the cemetery a reasonably safe place to visit which enables it to lay down any memorials in danger of falling. Safety in cemeteries has improved so much since such programmes were introduced, that now the main benefit from testing is to ensure that  memorials are not left to rot until they fall smashing themselves, or neighbouring memorials, or both, in the process.
