Christmas Grave Tending

Christmas is a time when relatives often seek to visit graves of loved ones, ensuring they are not forgotten at such a special time of year.

Sometimes cemetery visits for Christmas grave tending may not be practical for weather, geographical or health reasons, or maybe because there simply isn’t enough time. If this is the case Sarsfield Memorials can help you out if your relative is buried in a cemetery in the Liverpool, Knowsley or south Sefton areas.

We can visit your loved one’s grave and leave a wreath, potted bulbs or flowers there for you. Popular choices of flowers for Christmas graves include roses and lilies, but you may prefer to have artificial ones that will last longer against the elements. For a more religiously minded symbol, holly crosses or holly wreaths can also be left. We will also ensure the area around the grave is tidy, cleaning the vase and removing any old flowers or litter that have gathered in the autumn and early winter.


At the end of our visit we will photograph the grave and send the image to you via email or in the post. If required we can remove any items at the end of the holiday period. Prices start at £10 and anybody using our Christmas grave tending service this year can also take advantage of a special offer up until the end of March 2017. If you require the grave to be re-fixed, cleaned or the letters re-gilded, we will give you a 20% discount providing we have carried out work at Christmas and the order is placed before the 31st March 2017.

Sarsfield Memorials’ Christmas visits in 2016 will take place between 19th December and Christmas Eve. Please contact us if you would like us to help you remember someone special at this time of year. We will be happy to discuss your wishes and provide a free no obligation quote.
