Firstly, we need to know in which section the tombstone memorial will be erected. Many cemeteries have regulations regarding the size of a tombstone memorial.

This will depend on the section of the grave. The common sections are:

  • Berm / Lawn Section – Only a Headstone is allowed to be erected
  • Monumental Section – Full monumental memorials are allowed
  • Memorial or Niche walls – Inscribed plaques

All Tombstone memorials are subjected to permit application.

If unsure please forward the grave details and we will get in contact with the relevant cemetery on your behalf before any purchases are made.
