Commissioning a new memorial

Where a plot is not marked by a memorial, it may be possible to commission a headstone or plaque to commemorate those buried there.

The design, material, and inscription will need to be approved by obtaining a faculty. We can assist you in this process.

As part of the Heritage Lottery Funded project we supported an apprentice stonemason Will Yendell through his Level 3 Bankers Mason Course with Heritage Skills at the Crafts College, Stratford.  He undertook conservation work in the Cemetery and worked alongside Messenger Conservation as they repaired nineteen memorials in the first year of the project.  He recut the inscription on the Memorial Arch.

Now fully qualified, he undertakes the professional cleaning and restoration of memorials as commissioned by relatives and has a busy pipeline as more and more people wish to bring their memorials back to good repair in the restored cemetery.
