Gate of Heaven Catholic CemeteryHeadstones and Grave Markers

Families can purchase a temporary grave marker, which is placed within 10 working days of the interment.

How soon can a headstone or flat marker be put on a grave?

A headstone or flat marker can be ordered and placed either pre-need or after a burial. The time frame for installation varies widely, depending on what you choose and the time of year. Please note, if you have an existing headstone, additional inscription cannot be done in the winter months.

The placement of the headstone or marker is not affected by the settling of the grave.
