Stability testing

We carry out memorial safety checks in our cemeteries and closed churchyards to make sure they are safe places for you to visit. These checks are carried out every five years.

These checks are a legal requirement.

If a memorial fails a safety check:

  • it will be marked with a notice
  • the deed holder will be asked to contact us for more information.

If you own a memorial headstone at the Lawn or Hyde Cemetery please check we have the correct details for the deed holder.

Contact us if you would like to know more about memorial stability testing.
