Rules and Regulations

Within the United Kingdom most Cemeteries & Churchyards have very specific rules and regulations governing exactly what type of memorial stone they will, or will not, allow together with its size, colour, style, any design work required and in some cases the wording of an inscription.

    • Most Local Burial Authorities and Diocesan Churchyards are extremely strict on the enforcement of their rules and regulations.
    • As Professional Memorial Masons we have a wealth of locally based knowledge of Churchyards  & Cemeteries so can advise and guide you through what can be a complicated procedure.
    • We always apply for the necessary permissions and permits to introduce a new memorial or carry out work on an existing memorial with the Burial Authority or Church Diocese concerned on our customers behalf.
    • Some Churchyards & Cemeteries charge a fee for issuing a Fixing Permit which is usually called a permit fee. In which case we add their permit fee, at cost, to our customers account.
    • The Permit Application must be signed by the registered owner of the plot however we will help you with the application form process.


  • As part of our Quality Assurance Procedure we always keep our clients updated on the various stages in producing their memorial so the permit process is no exception.
