This can be carved from a drawing, photo or description, subject to the Minister’s approval. Our stonemasons are happy to discuss your requirements and produce artwork prior to carving.

Cost

The cost of the memorial is dependent on the size, design of the stone, type and length of the inscription and the fees payable. We offer a varied range of memorials to suit most budgets and are always more than happy to discuss your requirements.

Permit application and fees

When a new memorial or an additional inscription is introduced to a Cemetery or Churchyard a permit has to be applied for, for which a fee is payable. We ask you to sign the permit application and then we take care of the rest of the administration for you.
