Notice - Memorial Safety Testing
Okehampton Town Council staff will be undertaking routine inspection of memorials in its Cemetery in August and September 2021.
As the landowner the Council is obliged to undertake this work to ensure that the Cemetery is a safe place for the public to visit and staff to work.
