Memorial Registration scheme

Wirral Council and local memorial masons have developed the Memorial Registration scheme to help ensure the safety of memorials, quality service and high standards of workmanship.

For a memorial mason to be registered all of their memorials must be installed according to the National Association of Memorial Masons (NAMM) code of working practice and their work must be covered by a 10 year workmanship guarantee. Members of the British Register of Accredited Memorial Masons (BRAMM) can also provide this guarantee.
