RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR CHURCHYARD AND CEMETERY MEMORIALS

Churchyard and cemetery memorial regulations and rules can be complicated.   Even with Church of England Regulations there can be variances between different Churchyards, and every local authority cemetery will have its own set of rules that need to be followed when choosing a memorial.

Rules & Regulations

CHURCHYARD MEMORIALS

Churchyard and cemetery memorial regulationsAs a general rule of thumb, only more natural looking stones are permitted in a Churchyard.

Coloured granites or stones with a mirror polish are definitely not allowed.   However this does still leave a range of beautiful stones from which to choose from the very dark blue/black Welsh slate to the much lighter Portland or Purbeck stones.

Although historically kerbs may have been permitted in some churchyard unfortunately current regulations no longer allow this option.

Churchyard regulations will only allow inscriptions on certain stones, such as light grey granite to be painted.   Others need to be left incised only, and no new memorials can have lead work although this is still allowed for additional inscriptions.

Gold and silver lettering are only permitted in cemeteries.
