Families of Loved ones at Strayfield Cemetery started this petition to Cemeteries Team Civic Centre Silver Street Enfield EN1 3XA

We (Muslim owners of our loved ones graves- since - found out that it’s all graves of all faiths at Strayfield) all received notification from the Cemeteries Team, Civic Centre, Silver Street, EN1 3XA stating that all the Muslim graves at Strayfield Road breech health and safety regulations! It also states that when purchased the plot for our loved ones that it was made clear to us that the graves were to be lawned graves! Now I’d like to inform you that knowing the timescale we have to bury our loved ones and in our religion, that none of us are in any fit state or right mind set when rushing to organise a funeral so quickly, that we will even consider looking at the small print on purchase! Therefore, we feel let down! Nevertheless, the council agreed to burying Muslims at the Strayfield road site and would have to respect the Muslims belief and religion. It is clear via an Imam stating, that when we are buryıng our loved ones, “do not at anytime walk, jump over, or circumvent (tawaaf) or prostrate (sajidah) to any grave, or laugh, make jokes, play songs or music, such acts are disrespectful to the deceased and despicable to Allah and sinful!”

Having a lawned grave is not the issue or our main concern, the fact that having no type of surround to separate where the body lays (or some sort of indication where the body lays) will mean that all Muslims graves will be trodden on and disrespected. We need a clear start and end to our graves!

We are happy for graves to be lawned but to have a low and slight surround in some form to avoid and disrespect via people treading all over the graves. Please consider our thoughts. We are all grieving our loved ones and this has only caused us more stress, heartache and pain.
