HEART HEADSTONE FAQS

How Do I Choose A Heart Headstone?

With so many heart headstone designs, styles and variations available, not to mention the vast range of stone materials, colours and shades to choose from, it’s no surprise that many customers come to us for guidance and advice when it comes to selecting the perfect heart shaped headstone.

Many of our customers find that requesting to download our brochure is a great place to start as this provides several heart headstone styles, materials, and examples to help narrow down your memorial search. Many customers approach us with a heart headstone in mind. This could be an idea you have formed in your head or a picture of a heart headstone design that you have seen in a cemetery or somewhere online. This is perfectly fine, so rest assured our expert headstone design team and skilled memorial stonemasons can craft just about any bespoke design or idea you can think of.

Browsing heart headstones at your local cemetery and online, or simply booking an appointment to speak through your options in detail with one of our advisors and to view them in person will greatly help you come to a suitable decision when considering headstone options to help honour and remember a loved one.

What Should I Look For When Choosing A Memorial Stonemason?

When searching for a reliable memorial stonemason, there are several important factors to consider. It’s crucial to assess their experience in monumental stonemasonry, any accreditations they may have, their level of craftsmanship, product quality, and familiarity with the cemetery where the headstone will be placed. Equally essential is feeling comfortable working with the stonemasons to design and create the perfect memorial for your loved one.

It’s worth noting that most memorial stonemasons require a deposit upon placing an order. Therefore, it’s essential to have confidence in the stonemasons’ ability to complete the work and remain in business to avoid losing your deposit. Opting for an established memorial mason directly, rather than going through a middleman like a funeral director, can also help avoid additional costs.

Ultimately, selecting a reputable and well-established memorial stonemason will ensure peace of mind and guarantee that your loved one’s memorial is crafted to the highest standard.

Can You Help Me Choose A Heart Headstone?

We can certainly go through your options in great detail to help you reach a decision on which heart shaped headstone you should choose. We can highlight the benefits of different materials, show you a variety of heart styles and designs that meet your requirements, and discuss the range of colours and detailing options that are available for each particular headstone.

What Is The Best Material For A Headstone?

The best material to use depends on your choice of headstone, the lettering, carving requirements, colour, tone, texture, and location. We offer all of the popular headstone materials that you’d expect from any memorial stonemason, including granite, slate, limestone, york stone, and more. Many people would like a heart headstone crafted in a certain colour, and in these instances granite material is often the best choice due the wide range of colours and shades that are available – though it’s important to find out if your cemetery has any rules relating to headstone colours that are allowed.

Are Heart Headstones Available In Different Colours?

Yes, many of our heart shaped headstones are available in a variety of different colours – our granite material in particular is offered in many different colours and shades. A coloured heart headstone allows one to honour their lost loved one in a way they see most fitting. Perhaps in a favourite colour, or because they want something that isn’t as sombre as the typical black headstones.

Cemeteries and churchyards have different rules and regulations with regards to what they allow, so it’s always worth checking what their stance is with headstones of different colours to ensure your heart headstone choice won’t be rejected by them.

How Long Should I Wait Before Getting A Heart Headstone?

Choosing a headstone for a loved one can be a very difficult and emotional process, so we would always advise that you take as long as necessary to come to your decision so that you can be sure you’re honouring and remembering their life in the most fitting way. There really is no right or wrong answer – you should take as long as you require.

From a technical standpoint, most cemeteries request that you wait at least 6-12 months before erecting a headstone so that the ground has time to settle following a burial.

Timescales differ between cemeteries and also tend to differ between memorial type – for example, a cemetery may request a wait of 6-12 months before a headstone can be installed and erected, while they may allow a cremation memorial to be installed immediately.

If you’re unsure, our qualified and highly experienced staff can advise and guide you through this process.

Other than that, there is no set time that you should wait before placing a headstone on a grave – it is all down to you and when you feel ready. People often find it is a good idea to not rush the process, as time can help you better decide on the heart headstone itself as well as the inscription.

Can I Choose A Heart Headstone Design That Isn’t In Your Brochure?

In the vast majority of cases the answer is yes. Our memorial stonemasons are very experienced and highly skilled, so we are able to meet bespoke requirements and recreate any heart headstone design. Simply provide us with an image and/or an idea of what you are looking for, and we will do our very best to help. Heart shaped headstones are among some of the most popular choices, so we fully understand that you may want your heart headstone to be unique and different from others, or you may want us to replicate a heart headstone design that you saw elsewhere and really liked.

How Long Does It Take For A Heart Headstone To Be Made?

The design and creation of any headstone, be it a heart shape or any other design, and the engraving of its inscription is a highly skilled process. This means we can expect it to take some time before any heart headstone is complete following the order – certainly several weeks, and perhaps months. The timeframe will also depend on the current demand, so for a more accurate answer you will be best served asking for an up-to-date estimated lead time at the time of order.

Can I Add Something To An Existing Heart Headstone?

Yes, you can certainly add something to any existing heart shaped headstone. This could be a special design or etching, or an additional inscription or change of font. Whatever it may be, we can discuss your requirements and confirm what headstone amendments can be carried out.

What Is The Average Cost Of A Heart Headstone?

The truth is, there really is no accurate average cost of a headstone, regardless of whether it is specifically crafted into a heart shape or any other design or style. This is because each headstone is unique, and the cost will vary based on the material and headstone type rather than just labour involved to craft its shape. For an accurate quote, we would advise you contact a representative so that we can take the specific details you require beforehand.

One thing we can confirm upfront is our price promise – we are confident that our prices are the most competitive around and offer a discount should a customer find the same quality product elsewhere, so long as it’s supplied by a recognised and reputable memorial mason or funeral director.

Do You Offer A Guarantee?

Yes, all our headstones and other memorials come with an unbeatable 30-year guarantee..

Do You Hold Any Memorial Accreditation?

Yes, we are BRAMM (British Register of Accredited Memorial Masons) approved, and a registered and fully licensed memorial mason with over 130 years industry experience having first established ourselves way back in 1885.

Can I View Proofs Of The Headstone First?

Prior to production, we can supply you with design proofs of the heart headstone. In the event that you are dissatisfied with any aspect of the design, we can modify the layout or style until it aligns with your specifications. We recognise the importance of crafting the perfect upright headstone for you and your loved one and are dedicated to collaborating with you closely throughout the entire process.

Do You Ship Headstone Orders Overseas?

We do possess expertise in shipping headstones internationally, but please keep in mind that overseas shipping entails additional costs, such as specialised protective packaging, insurance, and customs fees.
