Churchyard Regulations (updated August 2019)
21 August 2019 IN: Parish News
With the advent of Lapidaris stones (which are similar to a Quick Response Code) the Chancellor has decided to amend para 2.5.9. of Appendix B of the Churchyard Regulations:
2.5.9. No QR [Quick Response] codes [which provide an instant link to a memorial internet page showing a virtual memorial of the Deceased`s life] or other link electronically or otherwise to web-based memorial pages may be placed upon any memorial without a faculty. This is due to the possibility of non-theological content and/or defamatory statements which might leave the Incumbent liable to action in defamation.
The additional wording is shown in bold type for ease of reference.
