What are my cemetery's requirements?

By law, all cemeteries must accept a headstone purchased from an outside source. They may, however, have regulations on the size, style and color of the stone. We will get written confirmation that the monument we create meets your cemetery's requirements if shipping to your cemetery. We are happy to work with your cemetery officials on your behalf.

If your cemetery requires a setting permit or application, we will do the paperwork for you. All additional cemetery fees for installation, foundation and any other applicable cemetery charges will be at the responsibility of the purchaser.

Will I get to approve the design first?

You will get to proof and approve the marker before manufacturing takes place. Remember, changes can not be made after our work starts. Please take time to go over the designs we send you – especially when foreign languages are used on the stone.
