These are all the free services that membership of Stone Federation entitles you to. You or your staff can use these services as often as you wish.

The procedure for helplines is that you receive an initial 20 minutes of advice on the telephone.

For visits, reports, letters or more in-depth assistance, a charge will be made at preferential members’ rates and you will be advised of this, and your agreement sought before any charges are implemented.


The Federation’s training arm, StoneTrain, offers a full range of both operative and management training for members. Full details are available at or alternately you can contact one of our Training Officers on or by calling 01303 856103.


Simply email and our technical team will do their best to provide you with an answer within 3 working days.

Stone Federation coordinates the technical advice service provided by members of our Technical Committee.  Please note that any advice given is covered by the PI of the expert replying, not Stone Federation itself.
