Upright headstones require a base for the stone to sit on and to provide room for flower vases. All cemeteries have their own base specifications. Some have a set size base that must be used, while others have a maximum size and anything under is acceptable.

Depending on your budget and how you want the memorial to look, we offer:

  • Concrete and plaster bases
  • Granite — 30mm plinth bases
  • Granite — 100mm block bases
  • Granite — 100mm M5
  • Granite — Skirts

Please contact us to find out the specific requirements for the cemetery you are looking at so that we can advise the correct specifications and base options available.

Different base options are shown below, starting with the most cost effective concrete and plaster base and moving through the various granite options.
