Tombstone to Monument: Part 2, Flat Marker | Funeral Pre-Planner, Kat Downey
There are many things to consider when arranging for a memorial marker. A flat marker can be used to commemorate a person or an event. A flat marker is also called a grass marker, as this type of memorial marker is sited on the ground. Flat markers are typically made of granite or bronze. If it is a flat marker the first consideration is the cemetery regulations. Cemetery by-laws regulate the placement of flat markers on graves within their grounds. The rules and regulations will also stipulate the size, materials and type of flat marker allowed. Before your finalize your order be sure you are in compliance with the Cemetery regulations, as they can and are known to refuse the placement of an flat marker that does not comply with their by-laws.
