Memorial Inspection Programme 2012

In 2012 Bedford Borough Council, Bereavement Services began a memorial inspection on all headstones in both cemeteries to identify memorials in need of repair.  

The inspection will continue on a yearly basis. 

Any memorials that are identified as being unstable, owners of the graves/memorials will be contacted in writing.

Memorial Inspection Programme 2016

A full inspection is taking place on ALL MEMORIALS again throughout both cemeteries. A visual and hand test takes place on the memorial, if the memorial is posed to be unsafe, hazard tape will be placed around the headstone with our contact details and then attempts will be made to contact owners. Please note that owners are responsible for the headstone and if any headstone is deemed unsafe, it is the owner's responsibility to make safe the memorial.  

It is the Council's duty to make sure we provide a safe environment for all our visitors.
