STAFF at a burial ground have been awarded for their customer service.

Employees of Epping Forest Woodland Burials in North Weald have been named Frontline Team of the Year at the European Call Centres and Customer Service Awards.

Burial park manager Carmen Graham said: “In our industry, we are often dealing with people at a very vulnerable time in their lives, so our staff have to be at the top of their game.

“It’s a great honour to have that recognised at a national level.”
