Memorial Masons operating in Cemeteries/Churchyards and Burial places (both Burial Authority and Private) should be able to demonstrate that they have the proper training, certificates and accreditation for both businesses and fixers. Burial Authorities have the right to request proof of competence.
Our memorial fixers are trained to the highest standards and have attained the City and Guilds qualifications required by NAMM. We are proud to be registered on the NAMM Register of Qualified Memorial Fixers (RQMF).
We guarantee that our memorials are fixed in compliance with the current industry standards: The NAMM Code Of Working Practice and British Standard BS 8415. You will receive a Certificate of Compliance on completion of your memorial that guarantees this.
All our Lawn and Kerb memorials are manufactured and installed to conform to all local regulations, and are designed to specifications laid down by the National Association of Memorial Masons and British Standards. This includes our Ground Anchor system, helping prevent natural lateral movement and attack by vandals. This animation shows how this works:
General Information about the RQMF
In 2010 NAMM introduced a registration scheme for nationally qualified memorial fixers/installers/erectors and memorial mason businesses. This Register is a database of memorial fixers/installers/erectors who have proven competency to install a headstone and base to the required standard as detailed in the NAMM Code of Working Practice, this being demonstrated by achieving a nationally recognised qualification:
- the full Cskills S/NVQ Level 2 award for Stonemasonry; or
- the QCF194 unit of the S/NVQ Level 2, Fix and Secure Masonry; or
- the NAMM Fixing a Memorial to the Code of Working Practice, City & Guilds Accredited Qualification.
More details on the RQMF are available at the RQMF website.
