It would help to know more about what information you are seeking to secure and what your "context" is (per ISO 27001). Many here can offer guidance, but to be of most benefit to you, we can't assume the type of organization you represent. For example, if you are merely trying to control the security of a small(ish) manufacturing organization, then the assets you need to control is going to be significantly different to a data center. This will reflect in policies and procedures, in that the more significant the risks to information security, the more complex/comprehensive your policies and procedures are going to be.

Re: Policies Mandatory or essential for ISO 27001 implementation

Well, I would propose the following list to meet ISO 27001:2013 requirements:
  • Acceptable Use Policy- A 8.1.3; A 8.2.3; A 9.4.4; A 11.2.5; A 11.2.6; ...
  • Access Control Policy - A 9.1.1; A 9.4.1; A 9.4.2
  • Access to Network and Network Services Policy - A 9.1.2; A 9.2.5; A 9.4.4; A 11.2.3; A 12.1.4; ...
  • Backup Policy - A 12.3.1
  • Clean Desk and Clean Desktop Policy -A 11.2.9
  • External Communication Policy - 7.4
  • Information Classification Policy - A 8.2.1; A 8.2.2; A.18.1.4
  • Information Security Policy - 5.2; A.15.1.1
  • Information Security Risk Management Policy - 6.1
  • Information Transfer Policy - A.13.2.1
  • Management of Removable Media Policy - A 8.3.1; A 8.3.3; A 11.2.9
  • Mobile Devices Policy - A.6.2.1
  • Password Management Policy - A 9.3.1
  • Policy of Information Security in Relations with Suppliers - A.15.1.1
  • Policy on the Use of Cryptographic Controls - A 9.3.1; A 10.1.1; A 10.1.2; A.18.1.5

Next to the policy you can find the source from ISO 27001:2013. 'A' stands for Annex A requirements. Number without A for a chapter. I hope that helps.
Thanks to TomaszPuk for your informative Post and/or Attachment!

Re: Policies Mandatory or essential for ISO 27001 implementation

The difference between policies and procedures is their purpose and the source they come from.

Policy - a formally expressed expectations and intentions of the organization management (Top Management)

Procedure - a detailed description about how to execute a process or an activity (Process Owner, domain expert)

Policies are on a more generic level, defining directions and Top Management's expectations.
On the other hand, procedures are describing how to execute particular processes, prepared by the process owners or experts in the given domain.

Welcome:

This is an interesting list. Before anyone can suggest which policies and procedures are warranted, don't we first have to know WHAT type of information is being secured? For example, if the organization is in the business of disposing of paper records, what use is a "cryptographic controls" policy?

Well you might be right. If a company does not use e-mail, any computer storage, then it is true - it would not need any cryptographic controls.

I am sure we still could find a few companies meeting these conditions but probably they would not be reading this thread, would they ?

Without understanding the Context of the Organization, the ISMS scope and also what information they seek to secure, creating a list is pretty much meaningless. I wasn't suggesting that an organization doesn't use a computer, have email etc. but in the example, those things have ZERO to do with the paper records.
