Specifies minimum structural design criteria, performance and renovation requirements for cemetery monuments and crematoria memorial gardens above and below the natural ground surface. The Standard also gives guidelines on installation practice and guidelines for war grave monuments. It does not set out to preclude artistic endeavour. This Standard does not apply to pet cemeteries or to public monuments other than cemetery monuments. This Standard is intended for use by cemetery authorities, monumental masons and all personnel concerned with the installation, renovation and general requirements of cemetery monuments.
