ANNUAL HEADSTONE SAFETY CHECK
All SAINTS’ CHURCHYARD, SHORTWOOD, NAILSWORTH
Nailsworth Town Council will shortly carry out the yearly ‘manual push test’ on headstones in All Saints’ Churchyard.
Any headstones which are unstable will be carefully lowered to the ground. Nailsworth Parochial Church Council will contact the family concerned and they will be asked to make the memorial safe at the family’s cost. This work must be carried out by professional monumental mason.
A list of any headstones laid flat will be posted on All Saints’ Churchyard entrance gate for general information.
Any headstones or memorials identified as being unstable must not be put upright by anyone other than a professional monumental mason. This is dangerous and could lead to further damage or injury.
Date of notice: 1st September 2017
