Memorial inspections in cemeteries

We are carrying out inspections of memorials in the old Loughborough Cemetery from week commencing September 11, 2017. Officers will be inspecting memorials to ensure they are stable, in line with the Memorial Safety Guidance issued by the Ministry of Justice in 2009.

If a memorial is found to be unstable then steps will be taken to make it safe, in discussion with relatives if possible.

Following the completion of the old part of the cemetery, we will then be looking at memorials in the main cemetery as well as disused church graveyards around the borough which we are responsible for.

You can read more in our Memorial Safety Policy and Procedures.
