Ordering a Headstone from County Stone
We warmly welcome you to visit us in person to discuss your requirements. Alternatively, please drop us a line and we will be happy to process your order over the phone.
Once you have decided on which memorial or headstone you would like, we will apply to the cemetery or churchyard for approval of the design. You need only to sign and date the application and pay the required fee – we will handle the rest.
When approval has been granted, we will begin work on your headstone or memorial. As we work to the highest possible standards with meticulous attention to detail and skill, it can take between 10 and 20 weeks for your headstone or memorial to be prepared. For burials, a grave must rest for six months to allow the ground to settle before laying the headstone, allowing ample time for its creation.
Before any engraving or finishing is done, we will give you a chance to review the finished stone. Once the lettering is complete, we will arrange an installation date with the cemetery. Finally, we will transport and carefully fix the headstone in place, where applicable.
