Looking after our local war graves

There are 25 war graves  in Staveley Cemetery; 11 are from WW1 and 14 are from WW2. The headstones are inspected regularly by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and replaced when they become illegible or damaged. The grass is cut by Chesterfield Borough Council.

Digital CameraWhile it is important that the headstones are not interfered with in any way, the CWGC welcomes your acts of caring:

  • If there is mud on the headstone from heavy rain, brush it off, with water if need be (but no chemicals or detergents)
  • Remove any large weeds which may have appeared since the last visit
  • Remove any rubbish which may have been dropped in the vicinity.
