Memorial Inspection Programme 2012
In 2012 Bedford Borough Council, Bereavement Services began a
memorial inspection on ALL headstones in both
cemeteries to identify memorials in need of repair.
The inspection will continue on a yearly basis.
Any memorials that are identified as being unstable, owners of
the graves/memorials will be contacted in writing.
MEMORIAL INSPECTION PROGRAMME 2016
A full inspection is taking place on ALL MEMORIALS again
throughout both cemeteries. A visual and hand test takes
place on the memorial, if the memorial is posed to be unsafe,
hazard tape will be placed around the headstone with our contact
details and then attempts will be made to contact
owners. Please note that owners are responsible for the
headstone and if any headstone is deemed unsafe, it is the owner's
responsibility to make safe the memorial.
It is the Council's duty to make sure we provide a safe
environment for all our visitors.
