Cleaning Headstones in Rainhill

Cleaning Headstones in RainhillCleaning headstones in Rainhill is a great way to show that the memory of the deceased is still honoured. Have you ever visited a cemetery only to feel shocked at the disrepair of some of the gravestones? There is something disrespectful and infinitely heart-breaking about a gravestone in such a state. The headstone is supposed to act as the final marker of a life departed, a salute to their memory. If you wish to give your loved one’s headstone a polish and touch up, call T. Lyon & Son. A clean, well-kept headstone will also indicate to other visitors that the deceased is still remembered and cherished.

With many memorial craftsmen in Rainhill, cleaning headstones is an additional service they offer. They recognise that a memorial headstone should be built to withstand time, so that future generations can also pay their respects. However, even the toughest granite headstone will show signs of age if not cared for every now and then. Marble headstones require even more attention. The weather and the surrounding foliage has a strong impact on the condition of the headstone. Apart from washing off moss and lichen from the stone, there’s trimming the grass around the stone and keeping the area free of fallen leaves and debris. As well as the cleaning of the headstone, there are other maintenance and renovation techniques that may be necessary. The headstone may need anchoring if the ground has washed away or degraded over time. The engraving and lettering will also wear away and will require a touch up, especially if it has gold foil or colouring.

By cleaning headstones in Rainhill you can ensure that the final resting place of your loved one is preserved. Contact T. Lyon & Son for a service that approaches cleaning headstones with integrity and respect. They will conduct all their cleaning and renovation work to the highest of standards in honour of the deceased.
