Local Authorities Cemeteries Order 1977

Health and Safety at Work Act 1974

Safety Inspections and Memorials in Council Cemetery/Churchyards

Following our testing in January 2019, headstones which were staked due to failure will now be sunk to safeguard all users of our cemetery as no contact has been made by family members to repair.

Grave Spaces :236 Miles, 310 Davies, 319 Bunce, 356 Strange, 374 Mason, 404 Newman, S16 Young and S19 Unitt.

The works will be carried out between September and December 2022 and we will endeavour to ensure the inscription in all cases is legible.
