You can put up a memorial on a grave which has exclusive rights of burial, often referred to as a purchased grave.

This is where the right of burial can be bought for 50 years, and then renewed. The owner can decide who will be buried in the grave.

Memorials are allowed in line with our cemetery regulations. You need our permission before the memorial is erected, and you must use one of the registered memorial masons to carry out the work. This ensures that the memorial is constructed to the latest health and safety standards and specifications, you will receive a certificate of compliance or a fixing guarantee from the registered mason on completion of the work.

Further information about choosing a headstone can be found on the National Association of Memorial Masons website.
