In order to control standards of workmanship and Health and Safety practices, Tavistock Town Council operate a Memorial Masons Registration Scheme.
The registration scheme is intended to:
- Protect the interests of memorial owners in respect of unsatisfactory workmanship.
- Standardise the quality of fabrication and installation methods.
- Ensure monumental masons comply with the Town Council’s management of Health and Safety regulations.
Prior to any monumental work commencing, the Cemetery Administrator must approve all applications. Where memorials are placed by unauthorised contractors or families, the Town Council has the authority to remove the memorial and recover the cost from the person upon whose order the memorial was placed (Article 14, the Local Authorities Cemeteries Order 1977).
The following memorial masons are registered with Tavistock Town Council and are able to offer professional services for the placement of memorials:
