How We Can Help

As well as offering free support and advice via telephone, e-mail and our resource materials, we also offer bespoke services to groups. We can help you manage your burial ground in such a way that wildlife thrives and it looks beautiful for visitors.

These include:

It consists of:

An initial call to find out what burial ground management you are currently undertaking
Discussing the issues and options
Guidance on the type of footage we need you to capture for us to carry out the virtual visit (either via photographs or a series of video clips – phone or tablet quality is fine!)
We provide a space for you to upload your footage to
We review your footage and a call is scheduled
Zoom call takes place where we play the footage, have discussion and give advice.

The Zoom call can be with just one person from your managing group or more.
