We are so fortunate to have a beautiful, well kept churchyard which is still open and available for burials. However, as with all churchyards, there are rules and regulations about the types of memorial stones that are permitted. In Swithland, the Leicester diocesan regulations apply. These stipulate the size of memorials permitted, the types of stone allowed and the process of applying for permission when you would like something that doesn’t quite fit within the rules.
More information about memorial stones can be found on the Leicester Diocesan website: https://leicester.anglican.org/memorials.
A copy of the current regulations can be found here: https://www.leicester.anglican.org/content/pages/documents/1566467113478672821.pdf
All memorials need authorisation before they can be erected in the Churchyard.
Please complete this application form before sending it to Colin Resch along with the appropriate application fee.
