Headstones and memorials

1. Headstone installation and maintenance

For safety reasons only memorial masons registered with Stockport Council are permitted to install or carry out work to headstones. This includes additional inscriptions.

What to do:

Please be aware that grave deed holders are fully responsible for headstones. You may therefore wish to insure your headstone.

We periodically carry out safety inspections of all headstones. We'll take action to temporarily make safe a headstone when required. This will be in accordance with our memorial safety policy and procedures (PDF 389Kb).

Any unauthorised headstones found may be removed without notice and charges for their removal applied.

For further information view the cemeteries terms of use (PDF 407Kb) and the information for grave owners (PDF 49Kb).
