view of gravestones in the cemeteryMemorial headstones for burial plots and memorial tablets for cremation plots are permitted; subject to the inscription being approved, prior to installation, by the Board.

Headstones are not permitted on cremation plots.

The Board reserves the right to remove any memorial where permission has not been granted.  In such a case, the applicant shall be liable for any costs incurred by the Board, as a result of such action.

The Board strongly recommends that a period of up to one year should elapse before a memorial is installed; allowing the ground to re-settle.

It also advises that a firm order for the memorial should not be placed with your preferred stonemason, nor should any work be started on the memorial until the Board’s approval has been received.

Application forms for a memorial are available from the Clerk, please email
