Buying Gravestones - a Guide...
Kol-Rocklea Memorials understands that choosing a marker or stone for your loved one's grave is something that you should do with great care and consideration. It is important to recognize the stone will stand for generations as a reminder of the life of the beloved deceased.

We hope you will find the following guide to buying a gravestone helpful:

  • Review the Memorial Portfolios here on our web site.
  • Contact Kol-Rocklea Memorials and set up an appointment to meet and discuss your ideas and needs.
  • Go to our facility personally and look at more photos and our shop displays of the types of markers we provide or view some of the blank stones we have at our location.
  • With our help and advice, select the material for the headstone. Granite is the most popular and we can show you the variety of colors granite is available in. You may also be interested in bronze or marble. We can show you samples of various materials.
  • After reviewing our purchase aids as to type, size and shape, you can select a stone you desire. We will review with you any limitations your cemetery may have regarding type and size prior to ordering, since we work closely with our region's cemeteries.
  • Determine what information you want to appear on the stone. Knowing the number of letters and words will help us price your order more accurately. We can provide simple lettering designs, more elaborate carving or pictures if you desire.
  • If you approve our quotation, we will need time to develop a drawing of the final design. You will want to approve the design on paper to check for spelling and style before we go into production of your order.
  • When approved, we will give you a delivery completion time when the finished stone will be ready for you to see. Check the marker to be sure all the information is correct.
  • Finally your stone will be ready to be set at the cemetery.

We meet with you in
person, decide on the material, type of stone
and design.

You complete and sign
a Memorial Contract.

We collect 50% of cost of stone & full amount for
the concrete foundation.

Usually within a few days
we prepare a Computer Sketch for approval, if necessary, which must
be signed and dated.

Upon approval of the Computer Sktech it is on average 6-8 weeks* for delivery time to the cemetery for most stones.
(* This may take longer for some specialty items and/or some of the imported colors - we will let you know at time of purchase.)

Upon completion of
setting the stone in the cemetery, the final
balance is due.
