Graves could cave-in during the heavy rains

Heavy rains may cause graves to sink into the ground because the soil covering the grave may be water logged and heavy, resulting in the grave sinking into the ground.

Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo (JCPZ), the custodian of cemeteries in Johannesburg, can only restore the graves with the permission from the family. As such, JCPZ is appealing to communities to visit the graves of their loved ones regularly so families can timeously identify and report damaged graves.
