To further enhance the beauty and dignity of the site there will be some landscaping work in the verge opposite the Beloved  Guardian's Resting Place throughout the autumn of 2019. This may result in some noise and other inconvenience. We regret this very much and hope it will not interfere with your quiet moments too much.
