Considerations for your memorial headstone
Headstone & Gravestone Information
When planning a memorial, monument or headstone in memory of your loved one, it is important to consider a variety of factors. At The Memorial Group, we can help you navigate some of these, but we advise that you do as much research as possible.
Monuments, memorials and headstones – or any other aspect of these items – could be subject to review depending on the churchyard or cemetary where your loved one will reside. Check these governing rules before finalising your plans with our stonemasons to make the process as smooth as possible.
Similarly, crematoriums operate in different ways, varying in how those interned there are commemorated. You should seek clarity over what type of arrangements you require before selecting products.
It is important to note that responsibility for a headstone or memorial lies with you and not the churchyard or cemetary. Any unsafe or dilapidated stones will require your maintenance, with those left unattended often laid down or removed by site management for the safety of others.
We’ve been helping families honour their loved ones through lovingly crafted monuments, headstones and other special items since 1894. If you need any guidance with your arrangements, or would like to know what information you will need to provide in regards to your design, please don’t hesitate to contact our dedicated team today.
