Headstones Yorkshire personally recommend to not erect a headstone until 3-6months after the burial, as this allows the ground to settle fully, thus avoiding the possibility of the stone leaning.
The 3-6 month rule does not apply to cremation memorials or vases, which can be fixed as soon as the grave is purchased.
Note: Some burial grounds have a concrete plinth placed at the back of the grave to allow for immediate installation, which we can find out if you wish.
Certain churchyards and cemeteries have rules and regulations about the types of memorials they allow. Most will specify natural materials such as Marble, Slate or Yorkshire Stone but can also include size regulations.
