Whose responsible for headstones

Whilst away recently we were at a cemetery and talking to the woman there we asked if anyone could prop this particular headstone back up. It didnt appear to be broken just fallen over. She said they cant, the repair of headstones is the responsibility of the family.

Im not sure if this applies to all cemeteries but it could explain why some graves deteriorate as the families cant afford to have them repaired or no family lives near by to know the headstone is damaged to begin with.
