Best Practice Guidelines

Adding New Monuments


New monuments should harmonise with their surroundings. This will be achieved if they vary only by one of the following factors:

Form (shape)
Scale (size)
Material and Colour
Finish (polished, unpolished, rough)

Ensure that new lettering matches original lettering. The practice of screwing/gluing granite plaques on to existing monuments is discouraged. It is recommended that any new plaques be placed on desks on floor of gravesite in front of the original headstone.
