Buying a monument is not something you do on a regular basis and for many people this would be your first time monument buying experience.
As monuments can greatly vary in price and design, it is a good starting point to understand the difference between the types of monuments
Other things to be considered when selecting headstone is your budget and the selected plot. The section you loved one is in will determine how large the headstone can be. Different sections within the cemetery vary in their size restrictions and all cemeteries have their own size restrictions.
Please feel free to contact us or to contact your local cemetery directly to find out this information.

Headstone & Base
A Headstone consists of at least of two pieces of stone. Coming in a wide range of shapes and colour, these are one of the most classic grave markers.
Headstones can be personally inscripted either directly on the stone by sandblasting or by adding a bronze / granite plaque to the stone. All languages and designs (decorative pictures) can be created, accessories such as crosses added or even have a ceramic photo attached. The options available are only bound by your imagination.
A single monument is placed over a single grave site which consists of a minimum of kerbs, base stone and headstone.
A single monument can be covered by a garden bed, granite slab (ledger) or river washed pebbles.
Single Monument designs can greatly vary and it ultimately comes down to personal choice.
