Information for grave owners

When you purchase a grave space you become the owner of the exclusive rights of burial for the grave on a leasehold basis. This means you are granted the right to say who can be buried in the grave and your permission must be obtained to allow memorials to be installed on the grave. You are not the owner of the land.

Cemetery rules and regulations

So that our cemeteries and crematorium are safe, dignified and respectful places we have cemetery and crematorium rules. If you are a grave owner please read the rules. They include information about your responsibilities as well as describing what size of memorial is allowed.

Please note, during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, please maintain social distancing when visiting the cemetery grounds.

Memorials

We only allow memorial masons who are registered with us to work in our cemeteries. This is to help ensure work is carried out safely, to a good standard and considerately. A list of current, registered masons is given below. If you require a memorial to be installed or work to be carried out on a memorial you should employ the services of one of the registered masons.

Memorial safety

Owners of the exclusive burial rights for graves (usually referred to as ‘grave owners’) are responsible for the safety of any memorials on the grave. In addition, as a burial authority, we have general powers that allow action to be taken to address danger arising from the condition of a memorial. Any action taken by us will be proportionate and sensitive, taking into account visitor safety and the needs of the bereaved.
