Baldernock Cemetery will

be a more ‘peaceful’ setting for visitors, thanks to a

refurbishment by East 
Dunbartonshire Council.

The memorial garden has been improved by council staff to provide a more pleasant environment for those wishing to sit by the graves of loved ones.

The council cleaned the sandstone wall; have replaced both the plants and the chipped stones while also cut ting back the overhanging vegetation.

Furthermore, the memorial benches – which were donated by members of the public – have also been re-stained and freshened up.

Councillor Ashay Ghai, convener of neighbourhood services and depute leader of the council said: “We are pleased we have been able to make the memorial garden a more pleasant for visiting friends and relatives.

“The benches we have re-instated offer a nice place for people to spend time in a peaceful setting remembering their loved ones.”
