NAMM – National Association of Memorial Masons
The National Association of Memorial Masons is the representative body of the memorial sector in the UK, a significant player in the granite, marble and stone processing machinery markets. NAMM have instigated many important industry initiatives including the setting up of BRAMM (British Register of Accredited Memorial Masons) and its associated training programme that has improved safety standards regarding memorial fixings.
As a guardian of the craft, NAMM feature a display of carved, sculptured and etched exhibits from their Craftex competition at the Natural Stone Show and run a live demonstration of stone cutting work that highlights modern design in memorial masonry.
They work with the organisers to market the event to their membership through direct mailing, their in-house newsletter and promotion at the Tradex/Craftex exhibition held in association with the NFE.
