When Shopping for a Custom Headstone
Shopping for a headstone is likely an activity that most families have not had experience with, so the experts at American Headstones Company offer a few simple tips of advice for shoppers. First and foremost, be sure to have a written copy of all rules and regulations of the cemetery where the loved one will be laid to rest, so that you’re sure of what kind of headstone is allowed. This means knowing the size, the composition, required engravings, restrictions on colors, whether photographs are allowed, and whether any specific kind of marker edge is required.
You should also be aware of whether the plot of interment is a single, a double, or infant-sized, and exactly where in the cemetery the plot is located. Generally only cemetery personnel are allowed to set markers at graves, often because of legal requirements, and you should find out what this ‘setting fee’ is. This usually needs to be paid before the headstone can be delivered and accepted by the cemetery. If any paperwork is necessary before the marker is delivered, this should be taken care of right away, so marker acceptance is not delayed.
