How do you successfully buy a monument?

While buying your cemetery plot:

  • Validate constraints and restrictions related to the location. (ex.: Will the cemetery let the chosen monument be set up?)
  • Get an agreement with the owner on the chosen monument. He will then sign the cemetery permit.

When it comes to the monument:

  • Confirm that everyone who will be buried there can write their name.
  • Check that the design and model meet expectations (the chosen stone colour, finish and lettering type), as well as durability constraints (the least maintenance possible).
  • Approve with your supplier that the price at the bottom of the contract includes all costs (taxes, cemetery permit, the “Care and Maintenance Fund” in Ontario).

Finally, make sure that all people involved in the decision process give their consent.
