After The Funeral

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon after a burial can a memorial be ordered?

Just as soon as you wish, we can make an appointment to discuss arrangements with you at our office or at your home. You can also add the memorial to pre-arranged funeral plans, paying for it in advance at today’s price.

Is permission needed to erect a memorial?

All councils and churches require a planning application, (we will submit one on your behalf) which must meet their current rules and byelaws. A Fee is payable to the council or church at time of application.

Do I need a foundation?

Headstones can be very heavy and unstable, so it is important that they are erected on a safe concrete base. The cost of foundation work and the erection of the memorial are included in our prices. Items such as Memorial vases or marble tablets which are placed on a grave do not need a foundation.
