Warning elderly people.

The elderly persons sign is intended to caution drivers because there is special housing for elderly people about 100 metres along this road, it was not intended to direct them to the cemetery. About two and a half years after I posted this, the elderly persons sign was moved to a new and specially installed pole a few feet away from the one with a cemetery sign on it. I wonder why?
