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

Read the memorial mason registration scheme guidance notes and before completing the application form (PDF 181Kb / 10 pages).

Cemetery regulations

Read the Cemetery regulations, which monumental masons who register with this scheme must also abide.

We carry out regular inspections of 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 the sight of memorials laid flat may distress visitors to the cemeteries, but hope that people will appreciate that we had to do this in the interest of safety.

If you are the owner of a memorial laid flat, or supported, please contact the Bereavement Services Office and arrange with a memorial mason to have the memorial repaired. The responsibility for the repair and maintenance of a memorial remains with the owner of the grave, their successor, or representative.
