Memorial Safety

Your memorial should be insured and checked at least every five years by a professional memorial mason.  It is important you keep us informed if you change address as we regularly test memorials for safety and will contact you if work is needed. 

As a grave owner it is your responsibility to repair any defects to your memorial as soon as possible. If we cannot contact you we will lie down or support memorials in disrepair.

We regularly test memorials in our cemeteries and closed churchyards to ensure they are safe.

If you don't get in touch with us we may lie down or part bury your memorial.
