Questions about burials

I have a lawn grave. Why can't I put a full memorial over the surface of the grave?

The lawn grave was designed on the war grave principle (to have only a memorial of limited size at the head of the grave with the rest of the grave laid to lawn).

In this manner, the limited area available for burial is best utilised. In addition, maintenance is easier to accomplish with large mowing machinery being used to keep the area in a neat condition.

These graves are sold on the understanding that only lawn style memorials are erected. Full memorials are only permitted on traditional graves.

Care must be taken when selecting the type of grave. If you would prefer a larger, more traditional type of memorial you should not opt for a lawn grave.
