Memorial Inspection Notice – 19 May 2022

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Memorial Headstone Safety

Barry Town Council, in accordance with health and safety legislation, is undertaking an ongoing inspection programme to check the condition of memorial headstones within its cemeteries.  Any 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 of 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.  As this is part of a programme introduced by government legislation it is an offence for the bands to be removed by any one other than the Memorial Inspector or a Memorial Mason engaged to carry out repairs to the said memorial on behalf of the family.

A memorial is the responsibility of the grave owner.  Any memorials erected since November 2001 should not be affected as long as they were installed to the NAMM & BRAMM standards.  The programme has been devised to ensure that the memorials that pose the greatest risk are dealt with first.

If you have any concerns about the testing or want information about how to make your memorial safe please contact the Cemetery Office during normal working hours on 01446 738663, email info@barrytowncouncil.gov.uk or write to:

Barry Town Council, Town Hall, Kings Square, Barry, CF63 4RW

GWYBODAETH BWYSIG
Diogelwch Cerrig Beddau

Mae Cyngor Tref Y Barri, yn unol â deddfwriaeth iechyd a diogelwch, yn cynnal rhaglen archwilio barhaus i wirio cyflwr cerrig beddau yn ei fynwentydd. Efallai y caiff unrhyw rai y gwelir nad ydynt yn ddiogel ac sy’n debygol o achosi anaf difrifol eu gosod yn wastad neu eu gosod yn yr ardal a gloddiwyd ar ben y bedd o flaen gwaelod y garreg (bydd hyn yn golygu y bydd yr arysgrif neu beth ohoni yn dal yn weladwy).

Fel arall, efallai y caiff y garreg fedd ei “stancio a’i bandio” gan Arolygydd Cerrig Beddau’r Cyngor.  Gosodir y stanciau a’r bandiau ar y cerrig beddau i sicrhau bod y perygl y bydd y garreg fedd dan sylw yn cwympo ac yn peri difrod neu ddrwg i staff ac ymwelwyr â’r fynwent yn cael ei leihau. Gan fod hyn yn rhan o raglen a gyflwynwyd gan ddeddfwriaeth y llywodraeth mae’n drosedd i’r bandiau gael eu symud gan unrhyw un heblaw’r Arolygydd Cerrig Beddau neu Saer Maen a gyflogwyd i atgyweirio’r garreg fedd berthnasol ar ran y teulu.

Perchennog y bedd sy’n gyfrifol am y garreg fedd. Ni ddylai unrhyw gerrig beddau a godwyd er mis Tachwedd 2001 gael eu heffeithio ar yr amod y cawsant eu gosod yn unol â safonau NAMM & BRAMM. Lluniwyd y rhaglen i sicrhau yr ymdrinnir yn gyntaf â’r cerrig beddau sy’n peri’r risg mwyaf.

Os oes gennych unrhyw bryderon am y profi neu os hoffech gael gwybodaeth am sut i wneud eich carreg fedd yn ddiogel, dylech gysylltu â Swyddfa’r Fynwent yn ystod oriau gwaith arferol ar 01446 738663, e-bost info@barrytowncouncil.gov.uk neu ysgrifennu at:

Cyngor Tref Y Barri, Neuadd y Dref, Sgwâr y Brenin, Y Barri, CF63 4RW
