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.

Memorial Safety Inspections

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

It is the grave owner's responsibility to ensure their memorial remains safe. 
If we see memorials are unsafe we may lie down or part bury your memorial.

Apply to place a memorial

Applications for a  memorial permit [70KB]  to erect, inscribe or replace a memorial are made by the stonemason acting on behalf of the grave owner.  Your chosen stonemason will help you to choose a suitable memorial and assist with the application process.

The memorial guidelines are within the cemetery regulations and are available to download. [225KB]
