Fencing manufacturer Zaun has announced it is to provide steel fencing for a number of new burial plots being introduced nationwide.
The first burial plot in Staffordshire has seen the company’s fencing installed around the perimeter by Wolverhampton-based Steelway Fensecure. West Midlands-headquartered funeral service provider, Respects Bereavement Services, is developing a number of cemeteries across the country to provide additional burial space to the general public.
Zaun CEO Christian Hipkiss, said: “The Essington multi-faith cemetery will eventually provide 20,000 burial plots in 26 acres for the mixed religious communities who are currently struggling to find suitable provision.”
Steelway’s Steve Taylor, said: “The convex topping gives a more aesthetic finish to this sensitive site. We’re hoping to move onto successive cemeteries across the country with Respects Bereavement Services to provide this essential growth in available burial plots.”
