We make planning simple for you, whether it's for a single grave marker or headstone, custom-designed estate cemetery monument or family mausoleum.
Before you meet with a cemetery to select a final resting place, be aware of the various costs involved. That way, you’ll be able to purchase or preplan without fear of financial surprises.
You may be surprised to find out that costs can differ significantly from one cemetery to another, even in the same city or county. That’s one reason we highly encourage working through a third party, such as a memorial provider, to help you navigate these decisions. We’ve worked with hundreds of cemeteries over the years, and can help you make the best choice for your family, factoring in costs, upkeep and other considerations.
Each cemetery has its own rules and regulations for the headstones allowed on their grounds. Though most cemeteries are not overly strict, many have requirements for the grave marker’s material and size at most cemeteries. By learning about these rules, you can better ensure the memorial you design can be placed.
We created an interactive map and list of the memorial design rules and regulations for dozens of the most visited cemeteries in Northeast Ohio.
Contrary to popular belief, cemeteries cannot prevent you from working with an outside vendor. At Milano Monuments, we advocate for our customers to ensure their right to memorialization is protected. We have supported our customers when working with cemeteries to help them get the memorial they want approved.
Across all industries, nearly one-tenth of all retail sales now happen online. While this can seem like an easier option, even for headstones, it rarely is. Due to the unique restrictions of each cemetery and the various forms that must be approved, we strongly recommend working with a provider that knows your cemetery and can advocate for you.
We have relationships with local cemeteries and educate you on the differences between cemeteries, the fees each requires, and the rules for headstones (including how they vary from section to section within a cemetery).
We work with you to create your memorial on our computer aided design system. You'll see a full-size rendering of your memorials before it's committed to granite.
