MEMORIAL HEADSTONE TESTING

Several sessions have taken place to inspect the memorial headstones.  The team has found a small number to date that require attention, in accordance with the Memorial Headstone Testing Policy.  Relatives have been contacted and some remedial work has already been undertaken.

This is an ongoing process.  Thanks extended to the Clerk who has been part of the small team inspecting the memorial headstones in addition to the follow up recording and administration of this process.

All other Cemetery issues are in hand and will be reported accordingly.
