Almost all cemeteries require a cement foundation for your monument or headstone. The purpose of the foundation is to prevent the marker from heaving with frost or settling over time. Other cemeteries will charge a setting fee for installing a marker when a cement foundation is not required. For the majority of cemeteries we have these charges cataloged in our data base, any others we would be happy to find out. As part of our full service to you, we typically include the cemetery/sexton charge for this fee, as a separate line item in your cost. We will communicate the marker size to the cemetery and forward your payment to them.
