Whilst visiting this cemetery over last weekend we came across this broken stone. E-mailed the CWGC first thing on Monday morning to advise them of this broken headstone and had a response on Tuesday from Christine Connerty-Ketels stating that a gardener also reported it over the weekend and that a new headstone had been ordered to replace the broken one.

Fast response and nice to know that these matters are dealt with so quickly.

Yet it's very sad to see that cemeteries are vandalized almost everywhere.

I wonder if anyone has ever thought of some surveillace system at least in the "worst" cemeteries; maybe even just a webcam could be enough to discourage most vandals.

(of course it would be expensive, but also repairing all the damages is !)
