It is good to have a time frame that you can work with when it comes to many aspects of grieving for a loved one, and one thing that you could do would be to have a chat with your memorials Thame expert to see what kind of time they would be expecting to work with when creating the memorial that you would like to put in place for your loved one. The majority of stonemasons would need at least six weeks from when you gave them your final design, and others would need more to be able to get everything done.

For example, you will need to wait for a certain amount of time, anywhere up to a year, after a loved one has been buried before you put the memorial in place, as the ground needs to settle.
