Memorial Testing at Brackley Road Cemetery
Buckingham has a distinguished historic cemetery that is over 150 years old which Buckingham Town Council is responsible for maintaining. As part of its commitment to providing an attractive and safe cemetery for its visitors, the Town Council has started to assess the safety of memorials in the cemetery.
The Town Council is going to undertake a programme of memorial safety testing in the cemetery which will be done in an appropriate and sensitive manner. This will be an on-going process, conducted on a yearly basis, with all of the memorials being tested over a five year period. The holder of the grave deed is ultimately responsible for the maintenance of the memorial; a list of any unsafe memorials will be made available on the Town Council website and at the cemetery. The council would like to stress that if any unsafe memorials are found they will not be laid flat unless there is no alternative to making them temporarily safe until they can be repaired.
Deed holders of burial plots in the cemetery are asked to update the Town Council with their current address, especially if it has changed since being issued with the original burial deed.
The Town Council will answer any questions anyone has about the memorial testing at the cemetery.
