Cover slabs

A cover slab cannot be put onto a grave until the grave is full for any more internments of either full coffin burials or those of cremation ashes.

Please note that when an adjoining grave is opened for a burial beside a grave that has a cover slab on it, the earth bank separating both graves may subside due to the extra weight load of the cover slab on the bank. The cemetery will not be held responsible for the repair works required to reset the kerbstones and level the cover slab.  

Neither will the cemetery be held responsible if a cover slab and its kerbstones need to be levelled again due to general natural subsidence in the grave that they are set upon.

A letter from the current registered grave owner must be furnished before a cover slab can be placed onto a grave stating that he/she fully understands the implications of the above three paragraphs.
