Rip elsewhere please!

R.I.P. Elsewhere, Please!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Jeremy has been increasingly concerned of late about people using the gardens as a burial ground. Somebody buried a cat in the North Garden recently which was, of course, dug up by foxes. Jeremy then had the unpleasant task of disposing of the rotten corpse, which the foxes left in the middle of the lawn.

“We do also have quite a few smaller animal burials (like hamsters),” Jeremy writes. “I don’t mind that in itself of course, except where people create a little patch and put in unsuitable plants without asking. I then don’t know it is a burial sight until I dig it over.

“Then we have the regular ashes from what I can only assume (because of the volume) are human. They are often left in a pile next to a bench or under a bush. We probably get at least 10 a year. I would prefer it if people talked to me about ashes and I could advise them how and where to put them. After all I don’t think people really want their loved ones being in a pile with several other people, or end up being washed off my boots.

“I also don’t think they want their dear pets going into the communal bins.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
