Memorial Headstone Testing

If you are concerned about the safety of your memorial you can arrange for a Registered Memorial  Stonemason to inspect your memorial for safety or ask for a safety inspection from a trained member of Cemetery Staff.   The Town Council’s inspection programme applies a proportionate approach to testing  which will mean that any book, rest or footstone less, than 18 inches in height, will not be tested. 

For further information on the memorial testing procedure please see the following guide:
