We understand how difficult this process can be and we’re here to help you through it at every step.

We will talk you through the whole process from start to finish whether your loved one has been burief or cremated we can explain all the options and choices available to you and the process involved.

We can also deal with the cemetries on your behalf, so once you decide on how you want to mark the grave of a loved one we take care of everything.

How soon can I have my Memorial fitted after Burial or Cremation?

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.

Can I put up any type of Headstone, Memorial or Gravestone?

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.

Contact us with the name of the cemetery and we will advise you.

I have seen a memorial elsewhere that I like, but can't find it on your website - can you help me?

Absolutely, we can quote for any headstone in any material from either a photography or drawing.

Just get in touch with us to discuss.

Do you do bespoke memorials?

We can create any size headstone, out of any material and to suit any taste. Our highly skilled stone masons can perfectly craft exactly what you want.

How are headstones and memorials fixed?

All headstones we fix are to a national standard. We are members of the BRAMM (British Register of Accredited Memorial Masons) so customers can be rest assured that the installation work will be of excellent quality.

Can you fix a memorial?

Yes. If at any stage, for any reason the headstone or memorial becomes damaged or changed we can help fix and alter it.

Can you add an extra name to a gravestone?

Yes. Our aim is to match the existing style, size and finish of the original lettering.

Our religion is important to us and we would like to include a symbol or prayer, is this allowed?

You can include religious symbols, prayers and verses on a gravestone. Speak to us and we will be able to offer your suggestions and advice.

Can I buy a Memorial or Headstone in advance?

We serve a lot of families that have reserved a grave in a cemetery and we mark the grave with a headstone with either the family name on it or a prayer. The names of the deceased can then be added after an internment.
