Terms and Conditions

1. All maintenance and tending visits are undertaken Monday to Friday (Excluding UK public holidays). If you choose our ‘Loving’ or ‘Care’ options, tending will be completed no more than two days before your chosen date. 
Our tend and tidy packages are:-
Tender
This consists of two visits a year to carry out a full service and maintenance. This is a good package for those who live too far away to tend the graveside.
Loving
We visit four times a year: in spring, summer, autumn and winter. This package is perfect for those who struggle with regular visits but still want the site to be beautifully maintained to a high standard.
Care
Your loved one’s graveside will always be immaculate. This package is perfect for relatives who wish to share the important responsibility of maintaining the site.

2. Seasonal tends are:

Spring – March, April, May        
Summer – June, July, August     
Autumn – September, October, November
Winter – December January February

3. Because of the nature of our very personal service that we offer, and that we cannot obtain a signature on delivery, we will take a digital photo of your ordered item, at the location you requested. This will be your proof of delivery and fulfilment of your order, this photo will then be e-mailed to you. We will also have a copy for our records. The copy we hold will not be used for any promotional purposes, unless you have given your consent. 

4. We accept no liability for any loss or damage arising after your order has been fulfilled. 

5. Unless you are able to provide us with a grave number, we cannot guarantee that the work will be done on the first visit as we will need to first locate the grave, which can sometimes be difficult. If it is not possible to do so, you will be charged for the cost of the visit. If you need us to locate the grave for you, we can do so for a one off cost of £25. 

6. Occasionally, fresh flower substitutions are necessary due to temporary availability issues. If this is the case with the item(s) you have selected, our Florists will ensure that the style, theme and colour scheme is preserved and will only substitute of equal or higher value. 

7. If you have selected a repeat service and have opted to pay for the service by monthly instalments, you have seven working days (the ‘cooling off’ period) to cancel from the day on which you agree to go ahead with the agreement. 

8. Once you agree to go ahead, we require 5 working days before we can make our visit to the grave. Therefore, if you chose our floral tribute placement service, we will endeavour to fulfil any special day visits, but these cannot be guaranteed, if they fall within these first five day 

9. We are not able to accept responsibility for problems arising from the provision of a service where relevant permissions have not been obtained. Upon placing an order for our service you are confirming that you have deed of grant or have the authorisation from the owner.

If you choose not to receive this information please tell us at the time of your order. 

12. When tending Graves and Memorials, we will not leave any materials that could not naturally decompose, apart from flower pots.

13. If during an inspection we advise you that work is needed to the stone, we will if given permission by you, contact a local stone mason on your behalf to complete the necessary work.
