    grounds-keeper

    Hello,

    In the sentence below, what does "grounds-keeper" mean?

    There are no mourners in the cemetary now and the grounds-keeper has gone home to supper.

    Thanks in advance

    The man who looks after the cemetery in this context. It can also be used for a person who takes care of a sports ground or or a public park.
