Regulations & Fees
If your memorial service is being carried out by a Funeral Director, they will normally complete the necessary paperwork. However, for personal services such as scattering of ashes, you may need to complete paperwork – we are always happy to assist with this. Useful forms are available to download here.
Memorial Headstone Testing
If you are concerned about the safety of your memorial you can arrange for a Registered Memorial Stonemason to inspect your memorial for safety or ask for a safety inspection from a trained member of Cemetery Staff. The Town Council’s inspection programme applies a proportionate approach to testing which will mean that any book, rest or footstone less, than 18 inches in height, will not be tested.
