GENERAL INFORMATION

STEP 1

The first step in selecting a monument is to know the type of monument allowed by the cemetery in which the monument to be placed.  Most smaller country and family cemeteries allow the use of granite monuments, while most perpetual care cemeteries require the use of bronze monuments in most sections of the cemetery.  If you are unsure, please check with us before beginning to think about monument selections to see what your cemetery requires.

STEP 2

Once you understand the type of marker you must choose from, we recommend that you consult with our experienced staff.  We are available for a personal appointment to come to your home or we are glad to meet you at the cemetery where the monument is to be placed.  We will strive to work with you to make your experience as personal as possible.

 

USEFUL INFORMATION

Florida laws allow for the sale of cemetery monuments by a third party dealer.  Cemeteries cannot refuse the installation of monuments purchased through a third party as long as the monument meets the cemetery requirements.  They also cannot refuse the care of a monument or gravesite once the monument has been properly installed by the third party.  In other words, if they damage the monument with cemetery equipment, they are responsible for its replacement or repair, no matter where the monument was purchased from.  Additionally, cemeteries cannot tie the purchase of a monument to the purchase of a gravesite.  Neither can they require a setting or installation fee when the third party is the installer.  Please contact us for more information.

 

FLORIDA LAWS AND REGULATIONS REGARDING THE SALE OF CEMETERY MONUMENTS

Florida laws provide for the protection of monuments no matter where they are purchased.  In other words, if the cemetery damages a monument once installed, they are responsible for replacing or repairing the monument regardless of whether it was purchased through them or not.  Unfortunately, many perpetual care cemeteries tell families that unless the monument is purchased through them, the monument is not "protected".  This is simply not true.  Please contact us to request a copy of the current Florida laws & statutes regarding this matter.
