My mother died 17 years ago and having now moved from the area i am unable to get to the grave as often as i’d like to. Consequently the grave was in need of some TLC. I had spotted one of Andy’s adverts and got in touch,and wow am i glad i did. Right from the first contact he was so caring, keeping me fully updated. The before and after photographs are amazing and it looks like a brand new stone. I made the trip to see it for myself at the weekend and the photos dont even do it justice. I couldn’t be happier with the work done and would 100% recommend him.

I live in the USA, so regularly taking care of my grandparents grave in England, which is important to me, is not really possible.I’m so glad I found Andy to take care of it for me. He did a superb job of cleaning it up and replenishing its gravel. I was amazed at the improvement shown in the before and after photos he took. I’m very pleased with the results and will continue to use Andy’s services in the future. I thoroughly recommend AJG Gravetending.

My son died almost 24 years ago, and over those years life has changed dramatically. I work in a challenging full time job, and the weekends are always hectic with one thing or another and I simply don’t get the time anymore to get up to the grave. This in itself creates feelings of guilt and I’ve lost count over the years how many people have offered to fix it up for me. It was by sheer accident that I stumbled on Andys page and I am so glad I did. This man has taken all the worry and stress from me and completely transformed my sons final reating place. I am so very grateful for all the hard work and effort he has taken to get it back to its former glory and he will regularly tend the grave whilst keeping me updated. In addition to this Andy is friendly and warm hearted and I have been able to work well with him. I no longer feel guilty that I haven’t been able to get there and I am content in the knowledge that my boys grave looks amazing. Thank-you so much Andy. I highly recommend your service.

Andy, I’m more than happy with the work you have done on both of my family graves, and would recommend you to everyone.

After seeing examples of Andy’s work I decide to arrange for him to spruce up my family grave after it became a sorry state. When I saw the after photos I was completely amazed at the high standard of work, it looked like a brand new headstone! I wasn’t even aware it was originally white marble due to the grime and discolouration. I have already recommended and will definitely use again in future annually to keep the stone looking its best. Thanks again.

Andy has cleaned my partners mum’s grave and it looks lovely now. It’s taken it back to the beautiful marble. Very very pleased and would recommend AJG gravetending. Thank you Andy for such a good job.
