Cemetery Staff

This page is dedicated to all those men and women who maintain our cemeteries and memorials on a daily basis. Many spend their whole working lives doing this and take great pride in their achievements.
Indeed: It’s not uncommon to meet young members whose father’s and grandfather’s worked in the very same cemetery.
