Accrington Cemetery

Memorial safety

Headstones

 

To ensure the maximum safety of all visitors to our cemeteries, we have a five year rolling programme of works testing all our memorials to ensure they are safe and in accordance with the Code of Working Practice.

If a memorial is found to be unsafe, cemetery staff take the necessary action to ensure the memorial does not become a hazard to public safety.

Hyndburn Borough Council imposes rules and regulations regarding the installation of memorials.  Please see the details of our rules and regulations on the installation of memorials for guidance.
