CHILDREN’S HEADSTONE FAQS

How Do I Choose A Child's Headstone?

Choosing any type of headstone for somebody can always be a challenge, but when it’s for a child things can prove extra difficult both emotionally and physically. The most important thing to remember is that you’re entitled to take as long as necessary before coming to a decision over your child’s headstone – whether that means weeks, months or even a year or more of waiting before you feel completely ready.

Even when you do feel ready, there is such a wide variety of children’s headstones to choose from, it can feel overwhelming at first.

Many of our customers find that requesting to download our brochure is a great place to start as this provides several children’s headstone styles, materials, and examples to help narrow down your memorial search. Many parents and guardians have an idea in mind when it comes to a children’s headstone, so rest assured our expert headstone design team and skilled memorial stonemasons can craft just about any bespoke design or idea you can think of.

Browsing children’s headstones at your local cemetery and online, or simply booking an appointment to speak through your options in detail with one of our advisors and to view them in person will also help you come to a suitable decision when considering headstone options to help honour and remember your child.

What Should I Look For When Choosing A Memorial Stonemason?

When searching for a reliable memorial stonemason, there are several important factors to consider. It’s crucial to assess their experience in monumental stonemasonry, any accreditations they may have, their level of craftsmanship, product quality, and familiarity with the cemetery where the headstone will be placed. Equally essential is feeling comfortable working with the stonemasons to design and create the perfect memorial for your loved one.

It’s worth noting that most memorial stonemasons require a deposit upon placing an order. Therefore, it’s essential to have confidence in the stonemasons’ ability to complete the work and remain in business to avoid losing your deposit. Opting for an established memorial mason directly, rather than going through a middleman like a funeral director, can also help avoid additional costs.

Ultimately, selecting a reputable and well-established memorial stonemason will ensure peace of mind and guarantee that your loved one’s memorial is crafted to the highest standard.

Can You Help Me Choose A Child's Headstone?

We can certainly go through your options in great detail to help you reach a decision on which children’s headstone you should choose. We can highlight the benefits of different materials, show you a variety of styles that meet your requirements, and discuss the range of colours and detailing options that are available for each particular headstone.

What Is The Best Material For A Headstone?

When choosing the perfect material for your headstone, there are several factors to consider, such as the style, lettering, carving specifications, colour, texture, and location. Here at Wilson Morgan we specialise in creating memorials from various natural stones so we can provide a diverse assortment of popular headstone materials like granite, slate, limestone, and york stone, among others. If you’re seeking an upright headstone in a specific colour, granite is often the top choice due to its extensive range of hues and shades. However, it’s crucial to verify if your cemetery has any rules concerning acceptable headstone colours.

Are Children's Headstones Available In Different Colours?

Yes, many of our headstones are available in a variety of different colours – our granite material in particular is offered in many different colours and shades. A coloured headstone allows parents or guardians to honour their lost child in a way they see most fitting. Perhaps in the child’s favourite colour, or because they want something that isn’t as sombre as the typical black headstones.

Cemeteries and churchyards have different rules and regulations with regards to what they allow, so it’s always worth checking what their stance is with headstones of different colours to ensure your headstone choice won’t be rejected by them.

How Long Should I Wait Before Getting A Child's Headstone?

Choosing a headstone for a lost child can be particularly difficult and emotional, so we would always advise that you take as long as necessary to come to your decision so that you can be sure you’re honouring and remembering your child in the most fitting way. There really is no right or wrong answer – you should take as long as you require.

From a technical standpoint, most cemeteries request that you wait at least 6-12 months before erecting a headstone so that the ground has time to settle following a burial.

Timescales differ between cemeteries and also tend to differ between memorial type – for example, a cemetery may request a wait of 6-12 months before a headstone can be installed and erected, while they may allow a cremation memorial to be installed immediately.

If you’re unsure, our qualified and highly experienced staff can advise and guide you through this process.

Other than that, there is no set time that you should wait before placing a headstone on a child’s grave – it is all down to you and when you feel ready. People often find it is a good idea to not rush the process, as time can help you better decide on the child’s headstone itself as well as the inscription.

Can I Choose A Headstone For A Child That Isn’t In Your Brochure?

In the vast majority of cases the answer is yes. Our memorial stonemasons are very experienced and highly skilled, so we are able to meet bespoke requirements and recreate headstone designs. Simply provide us with an image and/or an idea of what you are looking for, and we will do our very best to help. Headstones for children are often among the most bespoke and unique as many parents and guardians want something that truly reflects the personality of their lost child and the things they most enjoyed.

How Long Does It Take For A Child's Headstone To Be Made?

Typically, we can craft a personalised upright gravestone design to fulfill your particular requests. Our stonemasons who specialise in creating memorials possess exceptional skills and extensive experience. Thus, if you share with us an image or explanation of the design you envision, we will make every effort to assist you. We recognise that upright headstones are frequently favoured and that you may prefer an extraordinary design that distinguishes itself or resembles an upright gravestone that you admired elsewhere.

Can I Add Something To An Existing Headstone For A Child?

Yes, you can certainly add something to any existing headstone. This could be a special design or etching, or an additional inscription or change of font. Whatever it may be, we can discuss your requirements and confirm what headstone amendments can be carried out.

What Is The Average Cost Of A Child's Headstone?

The truth is, there really is no accurate average cost of a headstone, regardless of whether it is for a child or adult. This is because each headstone is unique, and the cost will vary based on the material and headstone type. For an accurate quote, we would advise you contact a representative so that we can take the specific details you require beforehand.

One thing we can confirm upfront is our price promise – we are confident that our prices are the most competitive around and offer a discount should a customer find the same quality product elsewhere, so long as it’s supplied by a recognised and reputable memorial mason or funeral director.

Do You Offer A Guarantee With Your Child Headstones?

Certainly, all of our child headstones as well as any other type of memorial come with our 30-year guarantee.

Do You Hold Any Memorial Accreditation?

Yes, we are BRAMM (British Register of Accredited Memorial Masons) approved, and a registered and fully licensed memorial mason with over 100 years industry experience having first established ourselves way back in 1904.

Can I View Proofs Of The Child Headstone?

We can provide you with proofs of the child headstone design for your approval before moving forward with the creation process. If you are not satisfied with the initial design, we can make adjustments to the layout or style to better suit your preferences.

Do You Ship Child Headstone Orders Overseas?

We have experience in shipping memorials overseas, but it’s important to note that there are additional expenses involved. These may include specialised packaging, insurance, and taxes or fees.
