What is a Tenure?

Prior to the Cemeteries & Crematoria Act 2003, memorials for the placement ashes could only be arranged for a “limited tenure” of either 25 or 50 years.

Today, memorials can be arranged in perpetuity (permanent) with the vast majority of families choosing perpetuity to ensure there is a tribute for their loved one now and for future generations.

Existing memorials with a limited tenure can be converted to perpetuity.
