Installation Of Headstones Of Grave Markers
By Peter Watts

There are 2 stages to the installation of headstones and grave markers.

The pouring of the Foundation
The actual installation of the headstone or grave marker itself.

Cemeteries many times pour the foundation and have a fee for it.
If they don't do foundations, then a monument installer can do it, they will also have a fee for
it. Or, you may pour the foundation if the cemetery OKs it. ( If you decide to do it, we have
instructions below.)

Headstones and grave markers can be installed by several parties.
By the Cemetery
By a Monument Installer

Again, some Cemeteries install headstones and grave markers. They usually install upright
headstones if they sell them themselves and in most cases install the flat grave markers.
Please check with your cemetery if the do installations. They will charge a fee for installation.
If they don't, then the headstone can be sent to the a monument installer. They will have a
fee for this.
Installing headstones can be done on your own. We will explain the procedure for you.
You will more than likely need a foundation poured before the headstone is to be installed.

Pouring the foundation.
Dig a hole the length and width of the base of the headstone if you are ordering an upright
headstone. If it is a flat grave marker, then measure the length and width of the marker itself.
Then, dig down about 1-2 feet if it is a flat marker and 2-3 feet deep if it is an upright
Mix together a cement gravel mix, pour and level.
Usually, you should wait several days before you attempt to install the memorial to ensure the
cement has cured properly.

Although, installing grave markers is simple, it is important that you know that they start at
approx 130 lbs and go up to over 550 lbs. Upright headstones start at about 450 lbs and can
go up to thousands of pounds and in many cases need a professional to install them for you.
