Warning signs for headstone safety programme

The use of warning signs is one method set to be used as a way of informing people about a headstone safety testing programme planned for South Yorkshire.

According to the BBC, headstone safety testing will be undertaken in seven churchyards and cemeteries in Rotherham.

The work is being carried out by Rotherham Borough Council to ensure the safety of anyone visiting or undertaking work at the sites. Any headstones considered to be "immediately dangerous" will be laid on the ground.

Prior to the testing of the stones, scheduled to begin later this month, the council wants to inform relatives about the work via warning signs, public notices and written letters.

The news provider said safety stickers would be placed on stones considered unstable but not dangerous: "Memorials that are unstable, but not immediately dangerous will be identified through a sticker requesting the relatives of the deceased to contact Rotherham Borough Council, so work can be arranged."

The project continues the testing of all churchyards and cemeteries throughout the region, which first began in 2002.
