Saving memorials in Bear Street Cemetery



Closing date: 19 April 2016

Lead Petitioner: Emily Norman

Status: referred to a Committee

Petition: The council have asked 24 families so far to remove tributes and memorials to their loved ones that are placed on their graves. We want the council to change their letter so that as long as a memorial does not overspill onto the grass it can be allowed to stay.
