    Churchyards

    The Vicar and Churchwardens are carrying out regular inspections of our churchyard to ensure the dignity and safety of these special areas. A
    number of unsafe monuments have been found and those who have
    monuments in our churchyards are reminded that it is their responsibility to keep them in a safe condition. A recent collapse of a monument
    highlights the dangers presented when they are not properly maintained. A number of graves have decorations which fall outside of the Diocesan Churchyard Regulations. We will undertake process of clearing
    unauthorised decorations but due to the limited space we have for
    disposal of items this will take some time. If you have any questions about the Churchyard Regulations please consult the Diocesan website, our parish websites, or speak to the Vicar or Churchwardens.
