Grave headstones- Everything that you wanted to know before buying them

By Tia Melvi Subscribe to RSS | July 2nd 2012 | Views:

Finding the right headstone for a dear one who has recently passed is a very difficult task because of the nature of purchase and limited experience that one holds. So the question is that where does one actually go for complete information linked to designing and buying a headstone.

The primary pointer that one should majorly opt for is feasibility. One can only opt for something that the cemetery will allow. Cemeteries mostly regulate the kind of monument or grave headstones that are allowed within the cemetery by setting up rules and regulations. The type of grave headstones can be varied like the flat grave marker, bronze grave marker, upright headstones and also the cremation maker. The sizes differ along with the coloring and the memorial pictures that can be placed.

Once you are well aware about what the cemetery allows, you can shop for the right headstones which majorly fall within four different groups.

• Slant Markers- Wedge shaped markers which are purchased with or without a granite base placed under the marker.

• Upright headstones - An upright monument tablet placed on a base which is made of granite.

• Flat grave markers – Small and economical markers made from granite or marble.

• Flat bronze grave markers – A bronze plaque is mounted on the granite base (in most cases), seen around modern memorial park cemeteries.

Another great issue is finding the best price around. Knowing what you exactly want will help you make the perfect comparison without the slightest of doubts. Right from the granite color to the size, everything including the design and the finish should be well analyzed way before the purchase. Other particulars like memorial pictures and statues should also be decided upon beforehand so that there are no last minute doubts.

The next step involves personalization of the headstone. Once you are sure about the right dealer and the type of headstone the next step is to personalize it so that it reflects your adoration and respect towards the lost member. Artwork, designs, epitaphs, emblems and ceramic portraits are few ways to personalize the headstones.

Some cemeteries even let you accessorize by adding ceramic pictures and vases to the headstones. A small flag can also be added to the headstone. By the end of it all its important to make a note that don’t just rush for a headstone, instead spend some thoughtful time over getting something that mirrors your feelings towards the member.

Buy headstones that justify their presence and customize it with various special features and components which can dignify the lost presence of your beloved family members or even pets.
