Churchyard Memorials
Memorials that are placed within a Churchyard must comply with the regulations as laid down by the Diocese for that area. These regulations are more restrictive than those for memorials placed within a Local Authority Cemetery, but are there to preserve the natural setting of the churchyard and ensure that all memorials are in keeping with the surroundings. To ensure all memorials adhere to the regulations, a permit has to be applied for, a fee paid and authorisation gained prior to the memorial being placed. We will make this application on your behalf with the fees payable added to our invoice for your convenience.
There can be slight variances around the Kent & Sussex region so the following is a general guide to what is not acceptable
Marble or Granite memorials (EXCEPT unpolished light grey granite)
Open book, heart or cross type memorials
Memorials less than 2’ 6” high or more than 4’ 0” high (other than in specially designated areas)
Gold, silver or leaded lettering (with other paint finishes severely restricted)
Pet names within the inscription
Carvings or motifs (i.e. football badges) that are not in keeping with the churchyard setting.
However, Burslem are still able to offer a wide range of natural stones that are suitable for use in the churchyard which include Portland, Nabresina, Yorkstone, Black Slate, Green Slate and Purbeck alongside advice gained from over 130 years of experience in producing memorials.

Founded by Thomas Burslem in 1853 and incorporated in 1880 A Burslem and Son Ltd has been trading in and around the Tunbridge Wells area ever since. A recent move to a new showroom and workshop at Stubby Grove, Frant ensured the Company stays local to its origins despite the need for a modern workshop and greater space for stock storage.
Originally tasked with the construction of many fine sandstone houses and churches around Kent and East Sussex of the Decimus Burton era the focus changed dramatically during the depression following WWII and Burslem became known better still for the numerous war memorials at home and abroad as well as the tens of thousands of individual memorials in Portland stone; hand carved and engraved for dispatch from Tunbridge Wells following the inauguration of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission by local celebrated author, Rudyard Kipling.
During the latter part of the 20th century, the restoration of old buildings has become increasingly ‘in vogue’ as well as bespoke memorials and interior stone work together with the supply of floor and wall tiles, bespoke headstones and new architectural stone.
Inevitably the company encompasses the old and new in continuing commissions for headstones, working closely with individuals, funeral directors and supplying granite, marble, limestone and silestone work surfaces for many kitchen companies, builders, architects and discerning private individuals. Covering projects in Kent, East and West Sussex, Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire and Central London employing some 20 people.
The Burslem family maintained an active interest in the ownership and management of the business and continued their focus on new stone buildings and memorials throughout the 20th Century.
Under new management from the late 1990"s, the company continues to focus on the core product base, embracing new technology together with a time honoured respect for the traditional craft of stonemasonry.
