Cemetery Permit Fees Explained
The Cemetery or Church yard will usually charge you a 'permit fee' to allow us to erect a memorial or headstone on the grave.

This is to cover the cost of checking the name and signature of the registered owner of the grave, that the inscription is within the guide lines allowed and that the proposed memorial is allowed.

Some cemeteries only allow granite memorials or granite headstones. Different finishes such as high polished, honed or rustic are allowed to finish the headstone memorial. Once you have informed us of the memorial you are considering we will contact the cemetery and obtain a permit form and the regulations to help you make a more informed choice.

The cost of the permit fee will be passed on to you by us at cost. This fee will very from £30-£300 depending on the cemetery. We will check for you and advise you.

Thickness of the material used for granite headstones and memorials
Granite memorials are usually 3" thick. In recent months we have been importing 4" thick material. This being used for our 'Exclusive Memorial' range. The extra thickness allows us to produce carvings in the granite headstones that have not been seen before. Our Sydenham and Lewisham show rooms have been stocked to show these new carved headstones and memorials.

The granite memorials are available in various colours and all designs are interchangeable. Prices shown include any one of these designs or any design from any other brochure you may have received.

Marble memorials and headstones

The white Sicilian marble memorials are all 3" thick material with lettering in incised and black enameled letters. If required carvings featured in one memorial can be incorporated in another, flower containers or vases added or removed. Although Marble is some times considered to be an old fashioned material we still love the traditional look of the finished headstone and believe that there is room for all types of finishes and carvings.
