Petition to ENFIELD COUNCIL

We call on Enfield Council to take action on the owners of Tottenham Park Cemetery

Tottenham Park Cemetery has been the final resting place for local Muslims and Christians for many decades. We 'The Community for Tottenham Park Cemetery" will no longer accept the lack of care and the lack of commitment to maintain this cemetery from the current Directors/ Management. The state of disrepair, lack of care for our loved ones' final resting place and the lack of communication from the Director/Managers  has become unacceptable. There appears to be no upkeep or maintenance whatsoever of the cemetery. The cemetery is overgrown and there is Japanese Knotweed ( an illegal and highly destructive plant) growing freely and destroying memorials.  The drains are overfilling and flooding and after each religious period where people visit their loved one, there is a terrible refuse problem. Enfield Council must take action on the owners of Tottenham Park Cemetery and ensure that this place is safe for the community.  The cemetery is 'open all hours' where gates are not opened or locked as stated in the opening and closing times. Items have been stolen from graves including plants, flowers and personal items. There is evidence to suggest that the cemetery is being used for anti social behaviour and as a place to sleep overnight. Complaints have been made by loved ones for many years by individuals to the Company representatives and Enfield Council,  however this appears to have fallen on deaf ears and as a result, nothing has changed. NOW IS THE TIME FOR CHANGE- TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.  We want the final resting place for our loved ones to be a place that we can be proud of. We want it to be cared for and well looked after. Please sign this to pushEnfield Council into taking action against the owners.  The Tottenham Park Cemetery Community.
