Memorial safety check
Following advice from the Health & Safety Executive, we will be starting a programme of works to ensure that cemeteries and closed churchyards are safe places to both visit and work. This is due to a number of injuries around the county from unsafe memorials and, therefore, all headstones and memorials within the Borough will be tested.
Those with memorials within the Borough cemeteries who would like further information are invited to contact the Cemeteries' Officer
A number of events will be arranged where the Cemeteries' Officer and a local Monumental Mason will be available to discuss the process in further detail.
The programme of Memorial Safety Inspections started in November 2007 in Stockingford Cemetery and then follow the order of sites below:
- Stockingford (Bucks Hill) Cemetery, Nuneaton
- Coventry Road Cemetery, Bedworth
- Attleborough Cemetery, Nuneaton
- Marston Lane Cemetery, Bedworth
- Oaston Road Cemetery, Nuneaton
