Council receives complaints over unauthorised memorials
â€‹Ongar Town Council has received complaints from relatives regarding unauthorised memorials which have been placed on graves in Ongar Cemetery.
Various items including vases, balloons and wind chimes have been left on graves despite the cemetery rules forbidding such items.
Councillors are concerned these items may represent a danger to staff while carrying out their duties, to visitors to the cemetery and to wildlife.
Councillors are appealing to relatives to remove the items and will review the situation in three months.
Anyone with any questions or concerns can contact their local councillor or deputy clerk Judith Farr on 01277 365348 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
