I have seen ones overgrown like that but with the area around the CWGC carefully tended.

 

It is sad though when they are allowed to get into that state.  The church were many of a relative's family were married, buried etc was sold for conversion.  There was condition that the graveyard was kept tended but of course they did not honour the promise and the church authorities were not interested in doing anything about it.

from memory these were taken at the same time as the last photo i posted. the regular visits make a huge difference in regards to keeping on top of the grass

I tried to get Community payback on site, as they have been here before. But the site failed the risk assessment due to knot weed. Disappointed

a chum successful rallied the CWGC to attend and clean the headstones earlier this year. So that's a positive. Its up to volunteers to tend the grave side.

anyone else have any good outcomes regarding neglected graves?
