3 Things To Ask Yourself When Picking Out A Headstone For Your Loved One

If you have been put in charge of creating a headstone for your loved one, this is a very important responsibility. A headstone is the first thing that people see when they go to a gravesite, so you want to make it as perfect and as special as you can. This article will discuss 3 things that you should ask yourself before you begin picking out a headstone for your loved one. 

Will Someone Be Buried By Them?

One very important thing to consider when you are in the process of making a headstone for your loved one is whether or not they are going to have someone buried next to them. If they have a living spouse that they want to be buried next to, then it is important that this is taken into consideration. The size and the writing on the headstone will be much different than if the headstone were being made for a single person. You will also need to take into consideration the wants and needs of the living person who wants to have a headstone next to your deceased loved one, in order to make it special and meaningful to both of them. 

 Is There Anything Special They Want On Their Headstone?

Your loved one may have had a special fondness for certain things that were a big part of their life. Because of this, you want to make sure that these things are incorporated on their headstone. For example, if your loved one had a great love of classic cars and spent much of their life restoring them, then you may want to consider having a headstone with a classic car carved into it, or perhaps even a headstone that is in the shape of a car. With today's technology, you will likely have no trouble finding the material and equipment necessary to create pretty much whatever personalization you think your loved one would really love and appreciate. 

What Are The Cemetery Regulations?

Another thing to take into account are the regulations that the cemetery has in regards to the headstones that are placed there. For example, they may only allow headstones that stand, rather than the ones that lay flat. They may also have certain regulations on their size, where they are placed, etc. Finding this information out before you order the headstone from a company like Maurice Moore Memorials will make it much easier for you to stay within the cemetery regulations while still creating an amazing headstone for your loved one.

Talking About Burial Plots and Grave Markers

Hello, my name is Ridley Linn. Welcome to my site about burial plots and grave markers. When I was a young child, I always went to the graveyard with my grandparents to clean off the stones and discuss our heritage. A large portion of my deceased ancestors chose to be buried close together at this location. During that time, I learned about the process of picking a grave plot and keeping it maintained over the years. I would like to help others choose the best burial plot location for themselves and their loved ones. I will talk about the options and share maintenance techniques for each type.
