Memorials and monuments

A stone memorial provides tangible evidence of a life lived, and a sense of focus at which the bereaved can remember and reflect. It plays an important role in the grieving process, forming a link between the past, present and future, helping to unify families and generations.

Memorials must be approved before they can be erected at cemeteries. Memorials at cemeteries are big business and one of the largest purchases consumers make after a funeral. Memorial mason costs can vary between $7000 and $10,000 per grave.

A monument can be a traditional stone memorial that is erected in cemeteries or churchyards; a plaque marking where ashes have been laid; a memorial bench or even a more personal sculpture or artwork.
