Project Description

Work comprised of excavating the entire site to 8 feet below ground level, screening the material and reinstatement of screened material. A final layer of topsoil was spread across the surface.

The perimeter of the site was separated by a new dry stonewall, built on reinforced concrete foundations. The lower end of the site required a reinforced concrete retaining wall.

Hand made concrete sills with individual slate marker numbers were laid in plots to distinguish between the graves and walkways.
