Facelift for Hailsham Cemetery continues

Hailsham Cemetery is continuing to see new improvements.

The latest changes to the cemetery in Ersham Road includes new chapel doors made by a local craftsman.

Work has been carried out at the cemetery over the last year including the resurfacing of some of the footpaths - the remainder of which will completed over the next two-three years, Hailsham Town Council confirmed.

“We want to ensure that our cemetery provides a fitting and appropriate place for people to visit their loved ones which is why we continue make improvements by carrying out any upgrades and repair work necessary on site. By doing this, we can ensure that the cemetery remains a place the community can be truly proud of.”
