Ellesmere Cemetery - Capital Works

Dorset Council will be undertaking capital works within the Ellesmere Lawn Cemetery at Scottsdale.

Council will close 7 rows of the lawn cemetery from Row X (AA) to Row AD (GG) and remove all plinths/plaques and associated tributes. These will be cleaned and stored at the Scottsdale Works Depot. A continuous concrete base will be installed at the lawn cemetery. Once the base has been installed each plinth/plaque and associated tributes will then be returned to its original position.

Council understands the importance of such a delicate operation and care and respect will be shown to all loved ones whilst undertaking these works.

If you have any questions or queries with regards to the above please do not hesitate to contact Tracey Brown on 6352 6500 or call into the Council Office.
