I note she says she would like to see all the headstones and surrounds removed.

My mother was buried there eight years ago into a family grave. Her father Edward Benefer, his wife Ethel, two of their eldest babies and my paternal grand parents are all also interred there. I would be appalled if these headstones were removed!

Have some respect!
