Sandwell Council now pay for damaged headstones which need repairing following testing for health and safety reasons yet the Birmingham City Council Bereavement services do not. One would think whilst we in Birmingham may have more cemeteries we also have a far bigger rate paying public so why can our council not do the same?
This is a question I have put to the Council leader amongst others. I will Post the response I get.
In the meantime I have also asked that the Bereavement Services attend a Perry Barr Constituency meeting in the future.
