Burial Ground Memorialisation
As part of the on-going development of Tithe Green Burial Ground, Oxton Estate have in the past year requested that memorials such as vases, pots, bottles, baskets or other containers be removed from the site. Any articles remaining after 1st June 2011 were then removed by the Estate.
This has resulted in the site returning to a more natural state and there has been considerable positive feedback in relation to this. It has also resulted in more families planting wild flowers in and around the graves of loved ones, which will in subsequent years, help with the development of wild flower meadows and enhance the beauty of the Burial Ground.
