Cremation memorial stones in Framlingham cemetery need ‘urgent attention’

A Suffolk cemetery is said to require “urgent attention” so that visitors can see their loved ones’ burial stones.
A former member of Framlingham Town Council attended its latest meeting on Thursday to highlight “design” problems with the lay-out of memorial stones for cremation burials.
Speaking during the public session, he said he had become acquainted with the town’s cemetery “through family circumstances” and had noticed the stones were laid out in rows three deep, one behind the other.
“If anyone, wants to clean their memorial or photograph it, it’s very difficult,” he said.
“I would invite all councillors to go up there.”
The former councillor said some of the stones were “very well made” but the lay-out needed “urgent attention”.
He said there was sufficient space in the cemetery but suggested the stones should be set out in “echelon” – diagonally – so that they are easier to view and maintain.
