Local Regulations

Burial grounds in the UK have very specific rules and regulations we have to adhere to in order to be granted permission to erect a headstone. The applicant(s) must be in ownership of the grave before we apply to the burial authority to be granted permission. There is always a cost for the Burial grounds to allow such a memorial to be erected on their land, this varies depending on the proposed works intended.

Please find information of rules and regulations for our local Cemeteries & Churchyards.
