Churchyard Memorials

CHURCHYARD POLICY GUIDELINES

Thank you for accessing this information and for working with us to ensure that our churchyards remain a place of solace and dignity in accordance with ecclesiastical law. 
 
We hope this leaflet on Grave Memorials  will provide you with the information you need to make your decisions on the most appropriate memorial for your loved one. The guidance contains information explaining when memorials can be placed and on placing flowers, and also explains what is not permitted and why. Please get in touch if you require any information or would like to discuss further.

If you are considering a memorial in one of our cremated remains areas, please get in touch as the memorials permitted vary from church to church dependant on the faculty that is in place.

Many of our churchyards are supported and maintained by volunteers and we would welcome any offers of practical help.
