BEFORE YOU BEGIN
You need to know if the cemetery you are dealing with has any
regulations on the type, size or color of markers they allow. Lots of
cemeteries have specific regulations. Regulations include limits on
minimum sizes, limits on marker types, and limits on what can be
engraved on the marker. Some regulations are imposed so that the
cemetery can charge more for their service. The
variety of possible regulations is wide and it is not possible to know
what those regulations are without first contacting the cemetery.
To find out, you must contact your cemetery administrator and ask
what, if any, are their specific regulations on markers. You may already have been given that information in the paperwork, or in the contract, you received at the time of burial. As part of our job processing we ask the customer to make sure the cemetery has OK'd the stone specs.
GATHER YOUR INFORMATION
You will need to gather the personal information that will be placed
on the stone. This includes names and dates, and it may also
include any other information or photos you wish to place on the
