Order Process

Order Process

All Australian cemeteries have different rules and regulations that need to be observed.

Once you have chosen your loved one’s resting place, you can begin the process of organising a memorial. The registered holder will usually need to sign a permit form (these can be downloaded     from the ‘Cemetery Permits’ tab at the top) and return to our office so we can submit to the particular cemetery for approval. Once the approval has been given, construction can begin.

In the meantime, any inscriptions or engravings will be drafted and sent as a ‘proof’ and we will not engrave anything until we have final confirmation from you. Memorialising a loved one is very personal, so we do suggest you are certain of the inscription before rushing in, as errors are very costly and will ruin a memorial.

The overall time frame from start to finish is approximately 10-12 weeks, however – weather, public holidays, material delivery delays & cemetery maintenance work can cause delays for installation and unfortunately are out of our control.

We do require a 50% deposit when a quotation is accepted, and the balance is paid when the memorial is complete.
