Help for carers and users of Lichfield (St Michael’s) churchyard
The parish of St Michael’s, Lichfield covers much of Stowe, Boley Park and St John’s wards in Lichfield. Anyone resident in the parish is entitled to be buried in St Michael’s churchyard --- but not to reserve a burial place in advance.
Over the years the pipework serving the two water taps in the (very large) churchyard have deteriorated badly and have needed to be replaced. The PCC have managed to provide funds to replace the pipework leading to the tap in the ‘Old’ churchyard (adjacent to the fork in the drive) but are unable to fund the more than £3,000 needed to pay for the extension pipework into the ‘New’ churchyard.
Folk who have loved ones buried in the ‘New’ churchyard have a long walk with a watering can to refresh flowers or plants placed in their memory. The PCC is inviting those who would like to make a contribution towards the cost of the extra pipework to indicate how much they would like to contribute; no cash is asked for at present, but an indication of commitment would be helpful, as some have already done.
