Stone Selection

Click on the section headings or the button at the bottom of each section to go back to the corresponding section in the form


Stone selection is one of the first steps in the memorial design. Sandstone, Marble and Granite can be used. Granite is the most popular and most recommended due to its durability, strength and low water absorption. Below are samples of the typical granites that can be selected. You also have the option of selecting an Australian stone or imported equivalent when purchasing.


Stone can come in many different finishes these include:

  • Polished
  • Sawn Finish
  • Rustic/ Rock face
  • Sand Blasted
  • Exfoliated
  • Tooled / Chiseled Finish
  • Bush Hammered

Stone is a natural product and subject to variations in colour and structure. Good stone selection and quality control systems will ensure memorials are free from other defects like chips and imperfections. Colour enhancers, sealants and chemicals should not to be used on the memorials.


Depending on the council regulations many designs and sizes are available. Due to the improvement of manufacturing equipment and advances in technology there is a myriad of shapes and sizes to choose from. Memorials can be made in many forms, some of these are:

  • Flat Lawn Plaques
  • Sloped Desks
  • Headstone and Base
  • Full Single Grave Memorial
  • Double Grave Memorial
  • Family Chapel
  • Columbarium Wall
  • Cenotaph
