Major horticultural renovations are now underway at Bergen (Mollendal) Church Cemetery. Whilst visitors will be able to access the plot within the cemetery, the area will not be to the usual CWGC standard until the renovations are completed at the end of August.
All the planting and soil from the borders will be removed and the area regularly sprayed with herbicide to eradicate ground elder and couch grass. Replacement turf will be laid in July and the borders replanted in late August. The work on the plot is being carried out on behalf of the CWGC by Gravplassmyndigheten i Bergen, the local cemetery authority, and we are extremely grateful for their assistance in this work.
