I am using \frontmatter, \mainmatter and \backmatter so my pagenumbering is correct. However, i would like my roman pagenumbering in \frontmatter to be uppercase. Is there any easy way to do so?

ps: i am using a adapted memoir as class.

I don't know much about memoir, but adding \pagenumbering{Roman} immediately after \frontmatter seems to do the trick.

The page numbering scheme used in the front matter is in the command \@memfront, so


would be the "official" way, but I agree that Torbjorn's method is slicker.
