All cemeteries have regulations regarding what style and size memorial you may place on your lots. Some restrict the choice of material that the marker can be made of (granite or bronze) and even tell you what type of design you must have. Cemeteries normally regulate which way the marker will face and on which end of the grave the marker must be placed. Due to the increasing number of people burying multiple cremains in a single grave, cemeteries also regulate how many markers may be placed on a single grave.
Most cemeteries require a foundation under the marker or monument. Cemetery that don't usually have an installation fee. For more on that see our informaiton on foundation and setting fees.
If you have not checked with your cemetery to find out their restrictions, you need to. We have many cemeteries in our database; contact us to check. If you prefer we have a simple questionnaire you can download to make sure you don't overlook something.
