My brother died recently. His partner/common law wife wants to put "beloved husband" on the memorial, even though they were never married. Is it legal to do this?

Hello,

It is not illegal but it Is factually not correct and misleading and she should not do that. She may say Beloved Partner or Beloved name of your late brother.

Hope this helps

HiFor clarity there is no legal reason why she cannot do this - whilst it may well mislead future generations of genealogists she is entitled to put anything she likes on it as long as it is not offensiveClare
