Headstone Safety Inspections at Parish Cemeteries

Headstone Safety Inspections at Parish Cemeteries

Desford Parish Council is responsible for ensuring safety at St Martins Churchyard and Hunts Lane cemetery. Periodically a safety survey (in line with the British Standard) of all headstones is required. It is likely that some of the headstones are not compliant with today's standards and action may be necessary.

The inspections have now commenced. The Parish Council realise that this is a very sensitive issue so we hope that the work will continue without any difficulties.

If you have any concerns or require further information, please contact the parish office.

Further information about the process is detailed in the attached documents
