The Chancellor of the Diocese issued new Churchyard Regulations in July 2010; he revised these in Nov 2010 (Revision 1) and Nov 2012 (Revision 2).
The latest Revision 2a was made in June 2013, and is available for download below : this version comes into effect immediately.
You can also download an application form for memorials:
- the form is to be used for application to the Vicar; Vicars have been given delegated powers to allow or refuse memorials which fall within certain parameters; where the proposed memorial falls outside these, or the Vicar refuses and you wish to pursue the matter further, you will need to apply to the Chancellor for a Faculty
- the form is in two versions: .pdf and .doc
You can also download two leaflets:
- one is a Summary of the (revised) Churchyard Regulations - particularly for those who need to organise a burial in a churchyard
- the other is a leaflet which churches will need to download and alter and then distirbute - it is for those those who need to organise a funeral
