The Monumental Mason Registration Scheme aims to establish a uniform standard of workmanship and working practices throughout all of our cemeteries. The scheme will address the standards required for the installation, repair and maintenance of memorials for both new and existing, insurance cover, health and safety requirements and administrative requirements, with a view to producing a common approach at every cemetery under our management. Through adoption of this scheme, it is the intention to identify and promote the best practice of the industry by all registered monumental masons.
How to join the Monumental Mason Registration Scheme
Applicants should read the guidance notes before completing the application form at the end of the Memorial Mason's Registration Scheme Guidance Notes and Application Form (PDF 181Kb / 10 pages)
Monumental Masons who register with this scheme must also abide by the Cemetery Regulations.
We carry out regular inspections of the memorials in all of the cemeteries. These inspections have highlighted a number of unstable memorials, especially in Penrith, Appleby and Garrigill cemeteries. These memorials have been 'made safe' by either laying them flat, or supporting them with posts. We appreciate that visitors to the cemeteries may be distressed by the sight of memorials being laid flat, but we hope that people will appreciate that we had to do this in the interest of safety.
If you are the owner of memorials that have been laid down, or supported, please contact the bereavement services office and arrange with a memorial mason to have the memorials repaired. The responsibility for the repair and maintenance of memorials remains with the owner of the grave, their successor, or representative.
