The Financial Report was given showing some £2,289.32 in hand. Income totalling £1188 had been from 4 burials and 2 interments of ashes plus some fees for erection of monuments. A grant of £200 had also been received from the Parish Council. Expenses totalled £996.26 made up of £540 for grass cutting and £456.26 for insurance.
It was agreed that the Secretary should write to St Cleer Parish Council to request their annual grant to support the Cemetery.
Last year it had been decided that due to financial circumstances grass cutting should be limited to a value of £500 for the year. In order to keep the cemetery in good order it was agreed to increase this to £700 for 2012-13.
