This very much depends on the size and material of your chosen headstone. We have memorial stones to suit every budget. If you take a look at our Value Memorials range you will see that they start as low as £865 and go up to many thousands for large custom memorials with lots of extras. If you are keen to keep costs low, it is best to choose a simple shape in black granite, such as the VR1 and use your free 80 letter allowance for the inscription. For a more personalised memorial there are optional extras like photo plaques, statues and other decorative items.
Standard overall height for most memorials are 2ft 6″ or 3ft but we can customise our designs to whatever size or material you need, subject to availability and approval by the cemetery.
A marker is usually a wooden cross or stick with a name or grave number on it, which is placed at the site of a grave after burial. After about a year, when the ground has settled, a headstone or kerb set can be installed on the grave. These will be made from stone, are decorative and are a more permanent fixture to commemorate your loved one.
