GRAVESTONES

A beautiful headstone made to last provides a special place of remembrance for generations to come.

A grave stone is also known to many as a headstone. Types in this range include the classic Lawn type and Chapel, which is partially enclosed with small sides and roof-like top.

FULL MONUMENTS

A full memorial monument provides protection and lasting decoration to the entire site of burial.

Full grave monuments are available in many styles and can use many materials. At their most basic, these pieces can consist of curbing surrounding the grave and a headstone or plaque.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Answers to Your Questions

 

WHO CAN AUTHORISE A MEMORIAL PIECE FOR A GRAVE?

Cemeteries require that the Grant of Right of Burial holder is the only person permitted to authorise the placement of a headstone or other memorial piece.

WHICH TYPE OF MEMORIAL MONUMENT SHOULD I CHOOSE?

Each cemetery and section has its own specifications for type and sizing. Knowing the location of the plot is a great place to start. For instance if your loved one is in the Geraldton Lawn section #2, a headstone or Chapel type is allowed. Whereas, the General sections will allow those, plus full-grave monuments. 

If you have to consider a budget, headstones require the least material and time and are the more affordable choice. 

WHAT SHOULD THE INSCRIPTION SAY?

This can be one of the most challenging choices for your memorial piece and is a personal choice. 

Download this basic example to consider and feel free to speak to us for to talk through your ideas.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GRANITE AND MARBLE?

The biggest difference between granite and marble is their porosity. Marble is more porous than granite and is therefore more prone to staining and chipping. Granite is the strongest of all natural stone types.

HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT BEFORE ORDERING A MONUMENT?

Settling of soil should be considered if you would like a full-grave monument. Because a grave isn't compacted after burial, we allow 12 months from interment.
However headstones or chapel monuments in cemetery sections with existing concrete rows may be installed immediately.

WHAT FEES DO THE GERALDTON CEMETERY CHARGE?

The Geraldton Cemetery Board charge a permit fee for installations, alterations and removals. 

We pay these fees on your behalf and itemise this within our invoice.
