After burying our Dad last year we asked for the best money could buy & were told Lenton's Lane was the place. With the rain we have had over recent months we have been distraught to discover that the area our Dad is buried floods. This is not just a one off with the heavy rains this Winter either. Family members of deceased loved ones at the cemetery have informed us it flooded like this last year, & we can only imagine over previous years too. We have also been told the Council were aware of this & yet allowed people to buy plots & have family buried there regardless. There is no drainage system & with the majority of the land being clay based the water simply sits on the surface creating a lake. Flooding several peoples recently deceased graves. This is heart breaking for all concerned as photos, cards, ornaments & flowers are all water logged & ruined. That is if you can find your wellies to get near the grave in the first place. Please help by signing this petition to show the council that urgent attention is needed. Grief is hard enough, but when you can't even visit your loved ones grave to pay your respects its even harder.

Thank you for your support from the children of a beloved Father-Debbi, John, Samantha, Anita & Kevin
