Cemeteries/Memorials

           National Association of Memorial Masons (NAMM) 

The National Association of Memorials Mason’s (NAMM) commitment to Burial Authorities:

Memorial stability and safety is a key area of concern for both Burial Authorities and NAMM.  NAMM is keen to recognise the responsibilities that all Burial Authorities have, and work with them to ensure that their burial grounds are safe areas for the public.  With the creation of the Code of Working Practice and subsequently British Standard 8415, NAMM has taken the lead on ensuring that masons are aware of the responsibility they have in creating safe cemeteries.  By insisting that masons work to the Code of Working Practice and thereby ensuring that memorials are fixed to BS8415 you can prove to insurance companies that you are taking all reasonable steps to ensure public safety within your burial grounds.  NAMM is also committed to ensuring the Association is involved in all aspects of the bereavement industry, and keeps abreast with requirements for the future in its work with Burial Authorities.
