DIOCESE OF LICHFIELD CHANCELLOR’S CHURCHYARD REGULATIONS

In particular they set out those memorials and related items which can and those which cannot be permitted by parish priests without the need for a faculty from the Chancellor.  For a complete list of our regulations click here.

Due to the volume of requests that come through for grave space reservations and memorial stones we do ask that a period of 3-5 months be factored into expectations.
