Please note that the Leicester City Council maintains the grounds at Gilroes but all headstones are the responsibility of the family.
If you would like to have your relative’s headstone cleaned then Gary Grant, Monumental Mason, (see below for contact details) will arrange for the work to be carried out either as a one-off or a yearly clean and this is done just before Rosh Hashonah.
If your relative’s stone breaks or becomes unsteady, and so a danger to the public, then the Leicester City Council will arrange for the stone to be laid flat. There is no obligation on the family to have the stone re-erected. However, if you wish to have it repaired or to have a new stone made then please contact Gary Grant.
His contact details are:
Shire Lodge Cemetery
Northants NN17 2AE
