Much is being done towards getting the churchyard into a more decent condition, but it has been found necessary to cut the whole of it with shears as attempts to cut it with the scythe and sickle for several years have proved useless. Those instruments have left such a clotted mass of herbage that a more severe and more expensive method has had to be adopted.
The Rector regrets that the use of tiles around the graves has caused so much untidiness and so much hindrance to the cutting of grass that he cannot give permission for them to be used in the future. In many cases, through being improperly laid, they have sunk almost to the level of the ground; in others they are terribly out of place. Some of these will have to be removed if not put in order.
The Rector, during the time he has lately spent in the Churchyard, has also noted with regret how those who tend their own friends’ graves with more on less care are regardless of the condition of those of others and leave their rubbish lying about instead of putting it out of sight in some convenient spot.
