memorial safety work

There is now a national requirement for ground anchors in the United Kingdom and as such all new memorials must be ground-anchored to comply with current Health and Safety requirements; cemetery/church regulations and in accordance with the NAMM Code of Working Practice.  Likewise, existing memorials must be ground-anchored when they are worked upon, whether for lettering or renovation, or if deemed unsafe by cemetery or churchyard authorities’ memorial safety checks.

All memorials must be erected to withstand reasonable forces to which they could be subjected and therefore ground-anchor fixing should be fit for purpose.  We are able to draw on our vast knowledge to advise our clients with regards to how to make their memorial compliant with current requirements.

In addition to ground-anchoring, all headpieces and bases must be dowelled together using the correct sized stainless steel dowels and be erected on a reinforced pre-cast concrete foundation plinth or reinforced wet-mix foundation where necessary.  In the case of the cemetery or church authority supplying a continuous concrete beam, the memorial is ground-anchored through the continuous beam.

As required by law, upon the erection of every new lawn memorial we issue our client with a Certificate of Compliance confirming that the memorial installation complies with BS8415 supported by the NAMM Code of Working Practice. 

Again, as required by law, we have the necessary Public Liability and Employers Liability insurances in place.
