EIGHT REASONS FOR BUYING A MEMORIAL
from a MEMBER of the
NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF MEMORIAL MASONS
A memorial should be a lasting tribute perpetuating a life. It therefore needs to be well made and securely erected. Often it is difficult for a person buying a memorial to assess the quality and workmanship that should be expected. So, to avoid unnecessary future expense, regret or even distress, it is advisable to choose a memorial mason who is required to work to certain specified standards.
Choosing a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF MEMORIAL MASONS offers the following safeguards:-
All members are expected to carry out memorial work to standards acceptable to the Association.

All members are encouraged to take part in training schemes, seminars and craft competitions organised by the Association to promote high standards of craftsmanship.
All members are able to offer memorial insurance through schemes approved by the Association – these cover All Risks, including vandalism.
In the event of any problem arising, all members are bound by the finding of the Association’s independent Conciliation and Arbitration Service.
