Ordering your Baby or Child’s Headstone
Discussing your design
If you would like to enquire about our children’s headstones or headstones for babies, first speak to one of our team available via call or email. As we understand this is an emotional time for you, you can also visit us at our offices instead for a face-to-face meeting.
We would also advise speaking to your chosen resting place to check whether they have any limitations on the type of headstone or other memorial allowed. Some places have restrictions on size, colour or shape of memorial, so it’s best to enquire before deciding on a specific design for your child’s headstone.
Once you have chosen the memorial children’s headstone you would like, we will complete the paperwork for the application to the cemetery or church on your behalf. You will only be required to sign and date the application and to pay any associated fees the venue asks.
Construction and installation
When approval has been granted, we will begin creating your memorial. Our skilled craftspeople work delicately and intricately to create memorials of the highest possible standard. This means that it can take up to 20 weeks, depending on the order, to prepare. In the case of burials, the grave must sit for 6 months to allow the ground to settle before a headstone can be laid, which gives plenty of time for the memorial to be created.
Once we finish the design, we will let you review it before completing the lettering and finishing. An installation date is then agreed before we finally transport and fix the headstone in place for you.
