Only the Grant Holder can apply for permission to erect a memorial or add an additional inscription to a memorial. This will usually be done on their behalf by a memorial mason. If the Grant Holder is deceased a transfer of Exclusive Right of Burial must be carried out before any permission can be given.
Depending on where the grave is located in the cemetery, permission to erect a permanent memorial may not be granted for up to one year from the date of burial. This is to allow time for the ground to settle. During this time a temporary timber cross, or other temporary marker, may be installed without permission, for a period up to 24 months.
Permanent memorials must be able to bear continuous exposure to the weather and therefore made of durable natural stone or sustainably-sourced hardwood.
