General Memorial Information

Cemeteries and churchyards often have rules governing and regulating the kinds of headstones and memorials that can be erected, and often also the inscriptions and ornamentation that accompanies the headstones can be subject to review. These regulations can vary from place to place and it is advisable to check. A MEMORIAL GROUP memorial mason will be able to assist.

Cremation sites: Some crematoriums simply have a central memorial universally commemorating all those buried nearby. In others, memorials in the shape of Headstones or plaques can be erected on individual plots.

NB: Before a memorial, be it a Headstone or a plaque, can be erected in a churchyard or cemetery, written permission has to be obtained from its management. Your MEMORIAL GROUP memorial mason will see to this for you.

It is therefore wise to arrange for it to be regularly maintained – and insured. The Memorial Group offers maintenance schemes that include cleaning and checking.

Internet Memorials

Created to meet today’s demanding lifestyles, a memorial to a loved one on the internet is an ideal enhancement to a traditional commemoration. Unlike a short-term obituary in the local press, it will remain a lasting dedication for private family viewing, or for all the world to see.

This commemoration from your heart is always at your fingertips as there are no closed gates on the internet. Family or friends, anywhere in the world, can visit a Memorial any time around the clock. Visitors can also log in and pay their respects in a dedicated book of condolence, linked to a nominated charity…
