As part of its rolling testing programme Syston Town Council will begin testing memorials in Barkby Road Cemetery, Syston on Friday 11 October 2019.
As the land owner, Syston Town Council is obliged to undertake this work to ensure its Cemetery is a safe place for the public to visit.
Under this safety testing programme all memorials over 625mm in height will be tested by trained staff using industry approved testing procedures. More »
Any memorials found to be unsafe are either: secured with a temporary stake, cordoned off, laid flat or dug into the ground to ensure they do not present a risk to visitors of the Cemetery and the owner will be contacted.
Only British Register of Accreditied memorial masons (BRAMM) members or equivalent can fix memorials in the Cemetery.
Syston Town Council endeavour to carry out this testing with minimal disruption.
However, we would ask any visitors to the Cemetery take note of the warning signs and exercise caution near memorials during this testing. » Less
