Heritage Values

We protect what we value.

There is a lack of general community support for the upkeep and preservation of cemeteries. We believe that this is largely the result of a lack of appreciation on the part of the community. Our success will be measured by our ability to raise the historical consciousness of the public towards the need for conservation of historic cemeteries. It will of course be more difficult to stop senseless acts of vandalism and grave desecration. If we show we care for our cemeteries then perhaps they will not be so prone to vandalism.
