    Hi All

    Apologies in advance if this is not the right section

    I went to visit my Dad's stone yesterday and found that the base is sinking away from the main stone by about an inch to an inch and a half.

    The whole row of graves looks to be affected by some kind of ground unsettlement and my Dad's luckily is the least affected.

    This is the third time since he was buried in 91 that this has happened. My mum paid for it to be fixed once by the cemetery themselves, my Dad's parents and brother then fixed it themselves the second time. Yet my Great Nan who is on the other side of the cemetery has been there much longer and never had any problems with her stone.

    What is the best course of action on this? I'm trying to contact the cemetery now but have had no answer yet

    It's a little bit difficult as everything is in my mums name regarding the ownership of my Dad's plot (is that the correct term) and she has since passed away

    I think you are referring to the deeds to the grave
