Depending on the individual cemetery or churchyard, an upright or flat memorial may be used if an upright memorial is desired, any of the shapes on the Cemetery Memorials page can be chosen, usually within an overall height of 24″ and a width of 14″ by 2″ thick.
If your location requires a flat memorial, these are available in the full range of materials and can be plain or accommodate a flower container. A standard measurement is 12″ x 12″ but local custom may differ.
Desk style memorials, which slope towards the front, are a futher option in various sizes and materials. In some situations a vase block will be the most suitable form of memorial. Lettering can be carved on one or more sides.
