We hope this page gave you some ideas of the different types of headstone designs that are available. Obviously you want to select a gravestone which you feel is personal to you and your loved one. However,  be prudent by determining your local cemetery regulations beforehand.

Most cemeteries have their own rules and regulations pertaining to headstone designs. It is very important that you check with them before ordering a tombstone as they can refuse it if it does not meet their regulations. They also may try to lead you towards someone they work with regarding who you purchase the headstone from.  However, you are well within your rights to obtain any gravestones or a memorial from wherever you choose, as long as it conforms to their regulations.

If you have any questions on cemetery regulations in the Indianapolis or Indiana area, please call us, and we will be happy to make sure the cemetery in question meets our design specifications.
