Only the current registered owner of a grave can authorise the erection of a new monument on a grave. Any changing of a monument, additional inscriptions or any alteration of any kind must have the permission of the current registered owner.
If there is no current registered owner of a grave, then a new one must be registered before any monumental work can commence on a grave. Please refer to the Transfer of grave ownership page to see how this is done.
Certain areas of the cemetery have different requirements for the sizes and colours of monuments permitted. Please refer to Rules & Regulations for Monuments in the Monumental Companies section for these variances.
All fixed monuments must have a concrete foundation to support them, which only the cemetery pours. Unless there is a pre-poured foundation in a grave, it takes 11-12 months for the ground to settle after the last burial before a foundation can be poured. Please note that pre-poured foundations are the property of the cemetery until a foundation fee is paid.
In order for a foundation to be set into a grave, the cemetery has three requirements. Firstly the current owner gives his / her permission. If no current owner exists, a new one must be registered. Secondly a drawing must be submitted by the monumental company showing the correct dimensions of the proposed monument. Thirdly a payment for the foundation fee of €260.
PLease note that only monuments made from NATURAL STONE are permitted to be erected in this cemetery.
