Churchyards will often have a burial and cremation area , and depending upon which area the memorial is to be sited will dictate the size and type of memorial permitted. Some Churches will permit an upright headstone where others will permit a flat tablet which is fitted flush to the ground.
Diocesan regulations will also only permit particular types of material. As a general guide, this will usually be a partly polished granite although other examples of material permitted may be Sandstone, Limestone or Slate.
Inscriptions for memorials in a Churchyard will normally only be permitted in an enamelled colour such as Grey or White. We will liaise with the Church on your behalf to clarify what is permitted and submit all relevant forms to them.
Once you are happy with the type of memorial we are able to supply for you, we will then write to the vicar of the Church and seek their formal permission. The Church will normally charge a fee for a new memorial, again this will depend upon whether the memorial is to be an upright headstone or a flat tablet.
Although we have shown memorials below as being appropriate in a Churchyard, not all will be permissable in all Churches. Please contact us with the name of the Church you would like the memorial sited in and we will be able to advise you further.

In January 2017 we decided to close our Nuneaton office after being based there for 25 years. We are grateful to our customers from Nuneaton and surrounding villages for allowing us to help them during their difficult time choosing a memorial. Our service to Nuneaton families still continues from our Coventry office, including new memorials, restoration work and adding inscriptions to existing memorials.
