Applying for a memorial permit or additional inscription permit

Memorial applications

All memorials need to be applied for by the owner(s) of the cemetery plot through a memorial mason before they can be erected within our cemeteries.

Applications are organised through your chosen registered stonemason with the submission of an application which incurs a chargeable application fee.

Depending upon your cemetery plot type, you may be able to install a memorial stone (for both graves and cremated remains plots).

We advise you consider your preferred type of memorial when purchasing an interment plot.

Applications ensure the following:

-memorials meet safety standards

-display the correct information

-memorials are in-line with our current Regulations.

If you wish to erect, make changes or maintain an existing memorial, you will need to complete our Memorial Application form.
