Somerset Churchyard Monument Grant Scheme

Churchyard monuments are an important part of the architectural and historic heritage of Somerset with over 850 protected chest tombs, headstones and ancient crosses.

It is hoped that the Churchyard Monument Grant Scheme will enable essential conservation work to be carried out to many of these monuments to halt further deterioration.

The scheme only applies to listed and scheduled churchyard monuments including chest tombs, headstones and crosses. Other listed structures such as lych gates and boundary walls are not eligible.
