Cromer Town Council is reminding local residents that items may be removed from graves in an upcoming inspection.

For several years the council has undertaken inspections at the Cromer Cemetery to make sure that it is a clean and safe environment for visitors.

If items are unsuitable to be left in the area, then they will be removed by the council and stored securely for 8 months.

Items which are not permitted on the site include breakable items such as glass and ceramic, as they could injure passers by if damaged.

Items which emit light, sound or movement are also not permitted as this can ruin the ambiance of the cemetery for other people.

Christmas wreaths are also allowed on graves, however the council has requested that these are removed by the end of February, after which date they will be removed.

To read a full list of regulations about appropriate items for the graveyard, visit the town council's website.
