What is the timescale to install a memorial from the order taking place?
Usually within 12-16 weeks from approval from the Cemetery or Churchyard authorities for stock designs. A timescale will be confirmed upon order.
If you have a special date that you are aiming for, or if you need a memorial to be in place quicker than our standard terms allow for, please speak to us. We will always try to work with you.
How long do we have to leave the ground to settle before we erect a memorial headstone?
Generally, burial authorities require you to wait at least six months for the ground to settle unless there is a pre-positioned concrete beam to take the weight of the memorial.
Please note, if you do want to place the stone on the grave at the six month point, it should be ordered at least twelve weeks before that date as it can take ten weeks to be delivered and two weeks to be lettered and prepared.
In the case of cremated remains a memorial can be erected immediately after the burial of ashes.
Churchyard & Cemetery Fees
There is a fee payable to erect a memorial or add a new inscription on an existing memorial in a Churchyard or Cemetery. We deal with all the formalities on your behalf.
If you would like to consider insuring the memorial, we would be pleased to arrange this for you.
Insurance starts from as little as £28 for 5 years with no excess to pay.
How is the memorial erected?
Once the memorial has been lettered and complete the monument is erected in accordance with British Standards laid down by the National Association of the Monumental Masons. Our Masons are qualified by the British Registrar of Memorial Masons and hold fixer licences
