Arranging a Stone Setting

Arranging a Stone Setting

When should I arrange a Stone Setting?
We would normally suggest as soon as you get up from sitting shiva.

Who do I contact?
The Cemetery Maintenance Department. They can be reached by calling 020 8950 7767 and selecting option 2.

How long should one wait to have the Stone Setting?
Some families are now setting the stone between six and eleven months. We would recommend between nine - eleven months.

What costs are involved?
As well as the price agreed with your chosen mason, there is a booking fee dependent on what day you decide on. Sundays are more expensive. As you can appreciate we carry out over 800 funerals a year and most people would prefer to have a stone setting on a Sunday. This is not always possible as there are only so many Sundays available to us; please carefully consider seeing if you can arrange it for midweek.

Please Note: 
If you have a double stone erected, when the second death occurs there will be a charge for breaking away the stone as this has to be done very quickly and we cannot wait for the stone masons to do this. We charge the same as the stone mason would charge the family.

Please remember to speak to our Cemetery Maintenance Department about the maintenance of the stone.
