Rules and Regulations

National Association of Memorial MasonsThere are various rules and regulations governing churchyards and cemeteries, which restrict certain types and dimensions at particular cemeteries. We will be able to advise you on this, or you can speak to your vicar or cemetery attendant for their advice, as they have the final say.
 

Our service includes the completion of any Church or Cemetery applications if necessary and fees which have to be completed and paid for in advance on your behalf.
