also receive an email confirmation with a link to view your final design. All orders placed through our Catalog will receive a proof from one of our designers for your review and approval prior to the Headstone being made.

How do we put the second date on once my love one dies?

Most cemeteries will have a contact for doing final death dates. If the Cemetery does not, then a local Monument Company will.

What is the cost to add dates to stone?

required.

How heavy is a granite Headstone?

Headstones weights vary depending on size, thickness and color. For example our most common Headstone is a 24″ x 12″ x 3″ in Grey. Headstone weights range from 86 lbs. to over 1,000 pounds in some of the larger styles.

Does Honor Life install Headstones?

Honor Life does not install headstones. We manufacture and ship your stone to the residence, business or cemetery that you specify in your order. For orders larger than flat 24″x12″x4″ (excluding Imperial Black), delivery drivers are NOT required to unload the stone from the truck. Someone MUST be present during delivery to sign for the stone and unload it from the truck. Failure to comply may result in a failed delivery attempt and additional charges being billed to the purchaser.

If the cemetery you have selected does not install the headstone there are usually local monument companies that can be contracted to do the installation work. Most cemeteries require any setting fees be paid by the family prior to the headstone being shipped. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to pay all fees prior to shipment. Failure to pay applicable fees may result in the rejection of the delivery of your headstone.

Can I add a picture to my Headstone?

Yes, a picture can be added to any Headstone. HonorLife.com has a large selection of sizes and shapes of Headstone.
