The Ornate and the Slumbering


Working at a real-world cemetery requires a significant amount of attention to detail, as much as in other professions. Between my father and myself, the two of us carry out such an operation on a weekly basis, and adjust our actions to the time of year, but never failing to work at what we do.

It is a small cemetery.

It is a tiny property with many graves within its boundaries and also there is a dilapidated church on the road signifying it is there. In summer, we tend to the grass growing there. In winter, we work at restoring the church (Louth United, it is named). We have work year round.

People want care provided for their departed.

Families of the deceased buried in our cemetery respond positively to the job we do, if we are dedicated in carrying out maintenance at the church and cemetery where we work. We run this as a volunteer operation. It isn’t very rewarding, financially, but it is a forward-thinking operation as we combine hands-on work at the cemetery with a small Internet presence.

Ultimately, overall maintenance for the cemetery is in our hands.

We are the ones accountable to the people who trust us, and we carry out what we need to do with due diligence. It isn’t hard to do it well, and fortunately between my father and I, we have enough expertise to lend some flow to operations at the cemetery which we maintain. It is such a nice property that we are glad to care for it.
