View of graves in York CemeteryWe are happy to provide a list of the various stonemasons approved to do work at York Cemetery. (Only Trust-approved stonemasons may do work at York Cemetery. Please do not attempt to install, repair or remove any memorial stones yourself.) For further information, please contact the Cemetery Warden.

Grave ornaments and tributes

The Trustees understand that relatives and friends like to place other objects on graves in memory of a loved one. Please help us in caring for the site by checking with the Cemetery Warden before placing any such objects on a grave so that we can advise you on what is and is not appropriate. Please do not place any glass objects on graves as these break easily.
