What types of headstones are there?
Tablets and wedges (flat markers)
Flat marker headstones are laid flat on the ground and typically made from granite. They are perfect for marking an ashes burial or for a simple memorial. Inscriptions do however tend to weather more quickly than upright headstones due to the water being able to settle in the inscribed letters.
A popular option, with an upright tablet structure and matching base. As long as they meet cemetery regulations, upright headstones can be any shape, size and design.
Available in some cemeteries, this memorial includes an upright headstone and a matching kerb-set to mark the grave boundary, with chippings covering the grave.
Slate headstones appeal to many, especially those with local heritage. The quality of the slate will determine its appearance and durability over time. Cheaper slate can discolour or shatter/chip in local weather conditions.
This natural-looking material can be used in both churchyards and cemeteries. It is softer than granite and marble and slightly porous.
The most popular choice for a memorial due to minimal maintenance, granite is a non-porous, tough and durable stone, available in a variety of colours and finishes.
