Can you install a headstone or memorial I purchased elsewhere?
Absolutely, please provide all the required plot and cemetery information and we will assist with your installation. We service all cemeteries in the Northern Territory.
Do you restore existing headstones and monuments?
Yes we do. Over a long period of time, some headstones and monuments become weathered with a build up of mould or dirt on them. Please email us with the cemetery, section and plot details so we can assess the memorial and provide you with a professional recommendation and quote. In most cases a headstone or monument can be respectfully renovated with some water blasting and re-lettering of the inscription or installing some new ceramic photos or vases.
What can I put on a headstone?
Virtually anything can be engraved onto a headstone. Let your imagination and the memory of your loved one guide you. Ceramic photos and bronze plaques can also be affixed to most surfaces.
How long will the memorial or headstone take?
The time frame can vary, but generally monuments and headstones can take up to 10-12 weeks to arrive in Darwin from our overseas material supplier. Our local granite suppliers can deliver in a quicker time frame at an additional cost. Bronze plaques can take approximately 8 weeks to arrive, express options are available. If time frames and certain dates are a priority, please let us know. Also if there are significant religious rituals, certain dates or times of day that need to be considered for installation of the memorial, please discuss with us as we will always respect these traditions.
What if I change my mind on the design?
We wait until you are completely satisfied and have signed your approval on the art proof before we order materials and begin working on your memorial.
How can multiple family members make payments towards the headstone?
We understand that family members or friends may wish to help contribute to the cost of the memorial. We can email the invoice to all parties wishing to contribute and we just ask that all parties use the invoice number as a reference when making a payment, to ensure it is allocated correctly.
How can I pay for my memorial or headstone?
Invoices are usually emailed and they can be paid via cash, cheque, direct deposit or credit card payments online, via phone or in person. If you do not have an email address, we can post your invoice to you or deliver in person.
Do you make pet memorials?
Yes we do, and there are a variety of options available, we have made small granite lawn markers with your pets name skillfully engraved and bronze plaques which can be placed on virtually anything. Ceramic photos are very durable and weather resistant should you wish to display one on an existing cross or marker in your yard. Unique urns can also be ordered in, as well as crosses and figurines.
