Design for memorial place

Most like to have a grave stone or other memorial placed on their grave, though this is not required

How should the memorial be designed?

If the deceased is buried in a family grave, their name is usually added to the existing memorial.

Generally, one must abide by the specific provisions regarding headstone size and design. The rules on graves and urns may differ from municipality to municipality.

Hviding funeral home would be happy to inform you about the rules and practical aspects of engraving and your choice of stone.

With an urn burial, a grave stone can be set in place quickly. With a coffin burial, the grave site needs to set first before the grave stone is placed on the site. It can take up to several months before the site is ready. The one who is responsible for the free burial plot of the group tomb has the right and duty to also take responsibility for the grave stone.

Grave maintenance

The cemetery provides guidance on the size and design of plant beds. If maintenance of the grave plot is too difficult, you can talk to the church warden and order maintenance of the grave plot. You can make a grave fund to cover the expenses. We are happy to assist you in creating such a scheme.

Design

Most like to have a gravestone or other memorial placed on their grave, though this is not required. If the deceased is buried in a family grave, their name is usually added to the existing memorial.

Cremation

Cremation is a good alternative to casket funeral. Any wishes from deceased should of course be taken into account, otherwise the bereaved are free to choose what feels right for them.
