Health and Safety Checks of Headstones – Saunderton and Bledlow Burial Grounds

Bledlow cum Saunderton Parish Council recently surveyed all the headstones and memorials in Bledlow Churchyard and Saunderton Burial Ground.

Unfortunately, our inspection found a few memorials to be unsafe so the Parish Council has carefully and respectfully laid some of them flat in order to prevent any accidents.  We understand that this may cause upset but we are obliged to take this action to ensure the safety of members of the publicunder The Local Authorities Cemeteries Order 1977

The Parish Council is now trying to locate any living relatives for the following headstones:

Bledlow Churchyard

Arthur Sneath died 1871 and Harold Sneath died 1875

William Avery date of death unknown

Rose Ann Roberts died 2nd January 1933

Mary Clarke died 1838 and John Clarke died 1841

Saunderton Churchyard

Lottie Harris died 28th May 1973

Edmund Frances Arnold 1927 – 2011
