Shocked and saddened

THREE generations of my family lived and worked in Worthing and are buried in Durrington cemetery.

In the past, it has been a wonderful, peaceful and well-maintained place to visit and remember loved ones. On May 25, I visited my parents, grandparents and brothers graves and was shocked and saddened to see how negelected the cemetery has become since my last visit about a year ago.

What is so distressing is that the cemetery contains a number of war graves as well as the graves of many world war veterans, including, my father and uncles.

As we approach the Queen’s diamond jubilee, surely I am not the only person who is unhappy about the state of this last resting place of our loved ones?
