Gravestones - A Helpful Guide

Gravestones are found worldwide and stand proud in the resting place of a loved one. We have all seen cemeteries and gravestones, however, we rarely talk to our loved ones about what we desire after we have passed. It can be a difficult process to step into, especially if it hasn’t been discussed. We hope to be supportive in your search for a memorial for your loved one, so we have put together a short guide to help you get started. Here are the steps we will take for you in the memorial process.

 Cemetery Guidelines

Before we begin choosing gravestones, we will check with the cemetery to be sure of any regulations they have. Some cemeteries have none, and others have size restrictions or placement restrictions that they ask to be followed. Most of the time, there are very few, but being aware of them before we get started helps to avoid inconveniences later.

Grave Stone Selection

Grave Stone SelectionChoosing gravestones can be understandably overwhelming, and painful. Please look for a provider who will help guide you in your decision, and not try to sell you into something you don’t want, or worse, can’t afford. Creating gravestones and memorial stones can be a helpful time for healing and recollection. We will be here to offer our advice, and help you choose the size, style, and color that best honors your loved one.

Final Draft

Today, technology allows us to view gravestones and other monuments before they are crafted. This is a helpful tool to be sure you love the finished look before it is “set in stone”. Sometimes, miscommunications can happen, and this allows for visual confirmation before all is final. Once all has been agreed on, we will create your memorial. Here at Delphos Granite Works, we consider it a great privilege to help you in such a time. We are here to support you in the decision process, from start to finish. Contact us today!
