Grave Tending & Memorial Cleaning
serving Plymouth & the surrounding areas
Welcome to Elite Memorial Cleaning
Tending to your loved ones final resting place if you are unable to.
I provide a complete grave tending and memorial cleaning service throughout Plymouth and the surrounding areas, including Torpoint, Saltash, Yelverton & Tavistock.
Visits can be carried out on the dates of your choice, maybe to coincide with a birthday or anniversary, and at whatever intervals you require, i.e monthly, quarterly, annually etc.
From one off deep cleans, to regular visits, giving you peace of mind that your loved ones
final resting place is looking its best all year round.
I offer a number of different services which can be tailored to suit your requirements.
Prices vary depending on the complexity of the job, the stone type, when it was last cleaned etc.
All work undertaken is covered by Public Liability insurance.
Elite Memorial Cleaning are proud to be a member of the Association of Grave Tenders, a not for profit organisation created to raise awareness of the services we offer and also to provide a directory of reputable Grave Tending businesses across the UK.
After a 20 year career in banking and a few years running my own domestic cleaning business in the South East I moved to Plymouth in 2015.
I often walk my dog through my local cemeteries. I find them really tranquil, a quiet, calming place to be. It used to upset me seeing seeing how many graves were looking overgrown and neglected. Obviously there’s a reason behind each one, people move out of the area or are unable to tend to them due to illness or disability, or just the fact that their lives are so busy.
In 2019 I had a bit of a 'life begins at 50' moment and was looking for a new venture so having identified that there seemed to be a need for this type of service, I decided to start Elite Memorial Cleaning. I spent a lot of time researching products and cleaning methods to ensure that I could confidently clean the memorials without damaging the stone in any way.
I love what I do and get so much satisfaction seeing the end result. I treat every job with the respect and care it deserves.
Here I am volunteering with a local community group helping them clean the memorial in Wantage Gardens, Plymouth.
Due to illness our family plot had been neglected for 10+ years. Elite Memorial Cleaning have done an excellent job. So good that I have asked them to do the other family plot.
Very professional, discreet and efficient.
You have made a good job on the grave.
Thank you very much
Highly recommend Debbie . She has tended our daughters grave for a few years as mobility has stopped us doing it ourselves. We have piece of mind when we visit them its all so lovely and tidy . Thank you Debbie x
Wow thank you so much! The lettering looks fab! Looks so much better, can actually see the names now!
Looking brilliant very pleased. Thank you.
You have done a wonderful job on both memorials. We are really pleased with how they both look now. The wording on the granite slab looks great - it's a real transformation.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the work you did to my father’s headstone. I am absolutely delighted with the result.
"Professional, honest respectful and reliable. Used to clean family grave that is over 100yrs old. Very happy with the results obtained. Professional from start to finish would definitely recommend and we will be using again my family is more than satisfied with the results, thank you."
I asked Debbie to clean my sons memorial and the result was way beyond my expectations and I really cannot thank you enough Debbie.
I would recommend this lady to anyone who needs their loved ones resting place brought back to life, she is extremely kind and caring and puts 100% effort into what she does. Many thanks again.
Debbie tends to my mum and dad's plot and she keeps it looking lovely. I would recommend Debbie to anyone. She takes the time and pride in her work
We think you are clearly a person who takes (justified) pride in her work and this just adds to the comfort and pleasure of seeing such a lovely job done for my father’s grave. The rose is a beautiful statement - thank you.
I can hardly believe this is the same headstone, you have done such a wonderful job - thank you! Many, many thanks.
