National Association of Memorial Masons - NAMM

Burial authorities have a duty of care to all those using the site and in particular the qualification and competence of those working there.

For that reason, and for the peace of mind of the family, it is essential that the company chosen to supply and erect the memorial are suitably accredited.

The best way to ensure that competence is to insist that the company chosen is a member of the National Association of Memorial Masons (NAMM), the only trade body specifically for the suppliers and fixers of memorials.

NAMM runs a number of training courses for memorial masons including their City & Guilds NPTC-approved training course on Safety Inspection and Assessment of Memorials in Burial Grounds. The award is facilitated through the NAMM City and Guilds Test Centre. The ID cards are issued by City and Guilds and are for life.
