Burial Memorials

Burial plots in the churchyards and municipal cemeteries on the Isle of Man are usually 4 feet wide by 8 feet long.  A burial memorial is usually fixed on a concrete foundation at the ‘head’ of this plot.  Some churchyards have a row of foundations already concreted,  If not, we will quote you for this foundation. 

A burial memorial usually consists of a granite headstone, stainless steel dowelled and glued to a granite base, then this is fixed on to the foundation.  Holes may be cored out of the base, to fit aluminium flower containers, or granite flower vases may be attached.

Depending on what area of the cemetery the plot is, the memorial may simply have a grassed area in front, for ease of maintenance, or be surrounded by concrete or granite kerbs.

A few examples of shapes, colours, combinations of sizes and types of inscription are shown in the photographs.  There are a number of standard-sized memorials to choose from and we have the skills and machinery to alter stones to your specification.

All characteristics of the memorial and foundation are subject to the cemetery and churchyard regulations in place at the time of applying for permission and these regulations are subject to change.  The Next Step
