Important information regarding the new British standard bs 8415 2018 in order to create a safer burial ground

In order to protect the public and give peace of mind to the bereaved we feel that it is essential that all registered cemeteries and churchyards should require that the product being used for securing the Memorial should of been tested in accordance with the new British Standard BS 8415-2018. The product must also be fit for purpose in order to comply with consumer law.

Fixer Masons

Who carry out a Memorial installation should obtain a test certificate from the manufacturer and ensure the product has been tested in accordance with BS 8415-2018 which has been countersigned by the acting chartered or incorporated engineer in order to prove that the product being used fully complies with the new standard.

Burial Authorities

Should also obtain a copy of the test certificate and confirmation from the concrete manufacturer that the foundation base is metal reinforced as required in the new standard (BS4449) and also become part of the burial authorities Memorial application form.


Following the publication of BS8415-2018 and the blue book operational guidance document published by BRAMM. We are proud to announce that the Stone Safe Stability system is currently the only cast in situ/in depth pier foundation system. That fully complies and also has a test certificate signed by the Acting Civil Engineer in order to prove that the product complies with the new British Standard BS8415-2018. In accordance with best practice as described in the blue book.

Best Practice

A Memorial installation can only be agreed to be best practice if the system has passed the test requirements of the new British Standards BS8415-2018 and been given a proven test certificate signed by the acting structural/civil engineer.
