Rules Relating to Cemetery Monuments

Cemetery regulations are necessary to comply with the law, to enable contractors to carry out their duties safely and efficiently and to maintain a suitable environment for the bereaved to lay to rest their loved ones and to continue to pay their respects in a peaceful setting.

All designs for memorials and inscriptions thereon must conform to Cemetery Regulations and must be approved by the Parish Council at a public meeting.
