The Memorial Mason Registration Scheme aims to establish a uniform standard of workmanship and working practices throughout all our cemeteries. The scheme will address the standards required for the installation, repair and maintenance of new and existing memorials, 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 practices within the industry by all registered monumental masons.

How to join the Memorial Mason Registration Scheme

Read the memorial mason registration scheme guidance notes (PDF: 273KB / 9 pages) and before completing the application form (PDF: 225Kb / 1 page).

Cemetery Regulations

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

We carry out regular inspections of memorials in all of the cemeteries.  These inspections may highlight unstable memorials.  We will make unsafe memorials 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.

Owners of a memorial laid flat

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.
