Securing Your Product

Our upright stones are designed to stand on their own on any flat surface, since our stones are heavy they become even more secure as time passes due to natural sinking due to pressure on the ground. Our headstones are unlikely to blow over under UK weather conditions.

Using our Headstones in Cemeteries

You might not be aware that most private gardens, remembrance areas and churches have rules and regulations so you will need to check for permission before placing an order from us. Nowadays must churches will have a website online with this kind of information.
