Finding graves using Ground Penetrating Radar

Grave Site Locating with GPR

Client Problem

Encompass Inspections was contacted by the cemetery to make sure there were no unknown caskets buried in a future work area on the cemetery grounds. The maneuverability of the GPR underground cart allows the locate technician to maneuver around the existing headstones and the surface conditions of the cemetery.

How We Responded

Encompass Inspections responded by sending a technician out to the customer’s location to conduct a ground penetrating radar grave site survey.  Encompass attacked the problem by using GPR underground scanning in a grid pattern to mark any utility lines or potential grave locations.

Results We Delivered

After conducting the GPR survey Encompass Inspections did identify a couple of potential unmarked graves in the area.  The possible grave sites were marked out in pink paint.  The customer had also requested a job report along with a map of the grave site locations.  At the end of each locate, Encompass Inspections technicians walk with the customer to discuss our findings and make sure there are no questions about the site markings.

Client Savings

By locating previously unknown grave site locations, Encompass Inspections was able to provide our customer with new knowledge of their site, while also avoiding any unfortunate scenarios that would have resulted had the customer chose to excavate without locating the grave on site.
