Ordering a Headstone from County Stone
Before deciding on a headstone, you are welcome to visit us in person. If this is not possible, we will be happy to discuss with you over the phone and assist you with your order.
Once you have made your choice, we will handle the next administrative steps. First, this will involve sending an application to your selected resting place to gain approval for the style of stone you have chosen. All you will need to do is sign, date and pay the application fee – we will handle the rest.
Once the design has been granted approval, work can begin on creating your headstone. Due to the level of skill and detail involved, this can take anywhere from 10 to 20 weeks to complete. However, it’s worth bearing in mind that, with burials, the grave must rest for six months after internment before the headstone can be laid, to allow time for the ground to settle. There is, therefore, no rush to achieve the perfect stone in a short period of time.
Upon completion of the stonework, we will present you with the stone for review, before beginning work on the engraving, carving and finishing phase. Thereafter, we will handle the final administrative work, including setting an installation date with the cemetery and fixing the headstone in place (where applicable).

At most cemeteries and churches, memorials and other headstones in Arundel are required to meet certain style and size regulations. This is to maintain the aesthetic and atmosphere of the resting place and keep the space serene and spiritual. Therefore, we would highly recommend checking with your chosen location before making a decision on your loved one’s headstone.
