UNSTABLE HEADSTONES WARNING – IMPORTANT NOTICE
for the Burial Sites Visitors on the Occasion of the Memorial Saturday
We wish to appeal to the visitors of the cemeteries to be careful when visiting the burial sites of their loved ones, and especially not to lean onto the headstones.
In the course of the regular control of the headstones stability, our specialized teams had identified a number of old and inadequately built monuments, which are significantly unstable and therefore any leaning and mechanical pressure may instigate them to fall and cause injury to the general public.
We particularly wish to warn parents with small children to closely monitor their movement, i.e. not to separate from them during the visit to the cemetery. It is important to mention that the children under the age of 10 are not allowed to enter the cemetery without the adult supervision.
If you notice any danger from potential fall of a headstone, please inform the Cemetery Administration immediately.
Additionally, we wish to remind you that according to the Article 10 of the Decision on Cemeteries Organization, Maintenance and Burials: „The care of burial sites and headstones is an exclusive obligation of the users, family and friends of the deceased. “ We are urging the owners of the unstable headstones to contact the respective Cemetery Management as soon as possible, for the purpose of arranging for the headstones rehabilitation. In order to upgrade regulation and maintenance of our cemeteries, Public Utility Company „Funeral Services“ is offering durable solution for enhancing stability and safety of the headstones, in addition to the burial sites maintenance.
