We provide a range of high class services, including upkeep of graves and plots, planting of seasonal bulbs and plants, flower displays and memorial refurbishment and have customers from within Gauteng at the moment. So whether you are just too far away, find it difficult to manage the work, or simply find visiting too emotional, we can help you in the knowledge that the work will be conducted with both care and dignity.
We know how important it is to you that your loved one’s final resting place is cared for, in a dignified and respectful manner. We also aware that sometimes it’s not possible for you to visit the grave, maybe due to your age, or the distance, or simply because of the demands and stresses of your lifestyle. This means, that too often graves become untidy with overgrown shrubs and tombstones collect amassing dirt and in some cases even getting damaged. So if you find it difficult to visit as often as you would like, you can take comfort in the knowledge that the grave of your loved one is being cared for and maintained by Batung GraveCare in the dignified manner that their memories deserve.
We have a range of services to meet your needs. This includes extras such as catering for special visits on yoiur behalf. This can be a birthday or anniversary. It is entirely up to you to inform us of your requirements. Bataung GraveCare works within the guidelines set out by cemetery regulations.
– Each visit by one of our specialist grave carers includes the following general maintenance:
