Headstone Safety Testing in 2021

Please can the owners of graves check that their headstones do not wobble.  Please can you also ensure that the Town Council has upto date contact details for you.  We will be testing the headstones in 2021.  If a headstone fails the safety test we will have to make the stone safe (probably by laying it flat) if we are unable to make contact with the owner or if repairs are not undertaken by the owner.  Notice of Headstone Safety Testing.pdf
