Merthyr Dyfan cemetery headstones inspected by Barry council

BARRY Town Council is inspecting memorials at Merthyr Dyfan Cemetery to ensure they are safe.

In accordance with health and safety legislation, any headstone found to be unsafe and likely to cause serious injury may be laid flat or “lowered down” into the excavated area at the head of the grave in front of the memorial base.

This will enable some or all the inscription to remain visible.

Alternatively, the memorial may be “staked and banded” by the Council Memorial Inspector. The stakes and bands are attached to the memorials to ensure that the danger of the memorial in question falling and cause damage or harm to staff and visitors to the cemetery is reduced. 

The most recently inspected memorials are listed below. If you are the relative of, or know someone related to those, those interred in any of the following graves contact Barry Town Council.
