Blandford Forum Town Council has a responsibility for public safety at Blandford Cemetery.
As unsafe memorials have been the cause of severe injury in some cemeteries the Town Council’s grounds staff have undergone memorial condition training with the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management. Our trained members of staff carries out an annual inspection programme checking the condition of memorials, which may result in unsafe memorials being either laid flat or staked to prevent damage or injury and the grave owners will be notified by way of a notice being placed on the effected grave.
The registered owner of the memorial is requested to arrange for repairs to be carried out within twelve months. If the memorial is not repaired within this time, Blandford Forum Town Council will consider taking appropriate action. The Town Council therefore asks that memorials are not leant on or used for support and that visitors keep to the footpaths as much as possible in order to avoid shortcuts between memorials. The Town Council staff working at the cemetery understands the importance and significance of the graves and memorials to remaining friends and family. Please be assured that all memorials will be treated with the utmost care and respect.
