Memorials

The council can offer technical advice and ensure that your memorial meets the cemetery regulations, providing a lasting remembrance of a loved one.

Memorial Permit

No work on memorials may be carried out the cemeteries unless a Memorial Permit  has been endorsed by the Council.

This work includes any erection, inscription or renovation to any memorial, vase or kerb on any grave.  An application giving full details must be made to the Officer on the appropriate council form (Memorial Permit Form) and must conform to the council's rules and regulations

This form must be signed by the registered grave owner and accompanied by the applicable fee.

No permit will be issued until the full fee has been paid and all details provided are to the council's satisfaction.

Please note that due to data protection, we are no longer able to provide details of grave or licence holders.  If you are unsure as to who is permitted to instruct such works, just provide the name of the applicant on the form and send directly into the Cemetery Services Department.

Exemptions to Memorial Permit

A Memorial Permit is not required for the cleaning of existing memorials, temporary items such as a wooden cross or marker, or any memorial which is directly provided by the council.

 

Memorial Regulations

Each cemetery has different regulations regarding what memorials are permitted.  All memorials must be fitted by a NAMM (National Association of Memorial Masons) approved Stone Masonry company.  For a full list of NAMM approved masons, please visit their Website

Before selecting any grave within our cemeteries please view our full rules and regulations
