Memorials

Memorial stones must be approved by the Priest in Charge. If the design is one of those Church of England ministers are allowed to permit (because there are strict rules about this) it is a simple and quick process. If not then you will need special permission called a Faculty from the Diocesan Registrar. We can advise and are happy to help you make an application if necessary. It is best to always talk to the ministers in the team first.

Other than memorial stones, anything that you place on a grave needs to be natural and it cannot be a permanent change to the area. This is part of Church Yard law, and so we do need to keep within what is allowed.  Please contact Vanda to discuss what is possible.

 

Our love for you is not written on paper, for paper can be erased.
Nor is our love for you etched in stone, for stone can be broken.
But our love for you is inscribed in our hearts, where it shall remain forever.
