Saturated Ground Conditions
As the wet weather continues, many cemeteries are encountering difficulties in excavating graves for burials and an increasing number are being forced to limit or postpone digging for burials until conditions improve.
Many earthen burial areas have become waterlogged due to the sustained wet weather causing problems when digging graves and some areas have become impossible to excavate altogether.
Interring in the saturated ground also runs the risk of damaging existing graves and the area in general can quickly become a quagmire which is unsightly and hazardous to visitors.
Business as Usual
Despite the problems experienced in many UK cemeteries for burials, all welters® Cemetery Village operations continue to operate a normal service and the full complement of welters® funeral experience support services are also continuing uninterrupted.
Cemeteries are also reporting that demand for our burial chambers and mausoleums has increased as families are seeing the obvious advantages of our systems when compared to the waterlogged and unsightly earthen burial sections.
welters® Cemetery Villages are designed for year-round interment and usually combine above and below ground burial options with facilities for cremated remains. Burial chambers can always be opened easily and safely and there is no risk of the grave collapsing. Similarly our private family and community mausoleums provide continuous interment provision.
Access to the grave or mausoleum is always possible and our interment support teams are available to train staff or carry out the sealing of the chamber or mausoleum as part of our Interment Support Service.
Never cancel a grave again
