How Are Our Memorials Installed
And Secured To NAMM
(National Association Memorial Masons)

When you buy a memorial for a loved one there is an expectation that it will stand in place as an elegant tribute to their memory for many years to come.

To withstand the test of time, all memorials should be made from the highest quality hardwearing materials and securely fixed to the ground to prevent them from falling or being pushed over.

Here at Blackwells Stonecraft our Memorials are made to last by skilled stonemasons using the highest quality materials.

We are members of British Register of Accredited Memorial Masons (BRAMM) and comply with there set standards of quality. You can trust that our products will always be both long-lasting.

NAMM-approved ground anchors

The British Standard for memorials, as set out in BS8415, states that for safety reasons, all memorials should be installed using secure ground anchors.

For your peace of mind and safety, here at Blackwells Stonecraft we only use NAMM-approved ground anchors to secure our memorials.

We anchor the headstones to the ground using a two foot stainless steel bar which goes through the entire base and concrete foundation and then into the ground. Headstones are attached to the base of the memorial using stainless steel dowels.

According to NAMM, there has been no historical evidence of any injuries occurring from correctly installed NAMM Accredited ground anchors since their first introduction.

We are so confident in the quality of our products that we offer a standard guarantee of 10 years. Browse our range of beautiful memorials and get in touch with our team of experts if you have any questions about designs, materials or fixings.
