Following on from a burial or the placing of cremated remains in a Churchyard or Cemetery, you may choose to
have a suitable memorial placed on the grave. We work with K&S Memorials to create memorials that will provide
a fitting tribute to your loved one. Michael Thorne will advise you on what materials, designs and wording are
acceptable in order to comply with the respective Churchyard or Cemetery regulations. He can also arrange for an
additional inscription to an existing memorial.
The regulations for Churchyards are drawn up by the individual Diocese and in many cases may be considerably
restrictive as to what is to be permitted. Cemeteries however, are usually more flexible in the material and style
of memorial permitted along with the more liberal approach as to the wording of the inscription. Many authorities
do not allow the placing of a memorial for six to nine months after a funeral.
Michael Thorne will meet with you at your home or at one of the Thorne-Leggett offices to discuss your
requirements. Alternatively, you may wish to visit his works in order to view the materials and to discuss your
specific requirements with the craftsmen.
