In England and Wales, cemeteries have different local and national rules. While some variables exist regarding allowable 'memorial' monuments within these cemeteries, others have designated areas for different religions or denominations. If you have any questions or queries that you would like answering, your designated funeral director will be able to advise you accordingly. Furthermore, the placement of grave memorials is not usually permitted for six months although the memorial can be ordered in readiness. Shoobridge Funeral Services will be happy to help you regarding all local memorial matters - get in touch today to find out more about the range of services on offer.
N.B Exclusive Rights and Grant to Erect a Memorial

'The Cemetery Burial Service' does NOT include fees or charges for the Exclusive Right of Burial or, the Grant to Erect a Memorial. Should you wish to place a memorial on the grave, both the Exclusive Right of Burial and the Grant to Erect a Memorial from the local authority must be purchased. Please note: dependent on locality and residency, prices may vary considerably- please contact Shoobridge Funeral Services for additional information.
