To hold an unveiling of your memorial, contact the cemetery office to arrange a time.
Staff will need a date, time, plot location, contact details and the number of people attending.
There is no charge for booking an unveiling ceremony.
Once the monument has been installed, the burial rights holder or their assignee will be responsible for keeping the plot and monument in good repair.
You need to put all flowers and adornments in approved receptacles. You also need to keep them on the concrete beam, without spreading onto neighbouring plots.
We will remove any adornments that prevent cemetery maintenance or do not comply with cemetery guidelines.
