Monumentals, Tombstones & Plaques

Choosing a Monumental Stone is an important step in the healing process. Oakleigh Funeral Home’s  compassionate staff will help select one to create a fitting tribute to your loved one.

We work around your timelines, allowing you time to find closure when you are ready. 

Considerations When Planning a Monumental Stone

• Cemetery regulations – are there any directives regarding size and style of the stone?
• Available materials – granite is not only cheaper but lasts longer, enduring the elements much better than marble. Some plaques, specifically those for gardens of remembrance, are also made from other materials such as brass and aluminium.
• Timelines – this is dependent on how elaborate the monumental is and availability of the mason to install. Sufficient time before the unveiling needs to be taken into consideration and planning.
• Documentation – is there anything we have to submit to the cemetery?

Requirements From the Family

• Grave/niche numbers as well as title deeds to grave if applicable
• Text for stone/plaque
