Buying a tombstone is as easy as possible, but choosing a unique and worthy tombstone that has less impact on the environment and climate is quite difficult, as it is nowadays common for stones to be imported from China, India, Canada etc.
A basic advice from us is that you should not act too quickly. A tombstone should be in place for at least 30 years. Because Sweden has a unique climate, it often means that from other parts of the world does not fit. Therefore, one should not be in a hurry but think carefully about what kind of stone would best suit.
Feel free to take a walk with your relatives to the cemetery. There you can get ideas and inspiration for stone design, colors and motifs. In a corner of most cemeteries or cemeteries there are many valuable tombstones that are no longer used. Such stones can be de-identified, reshaped, re-engraved and become a new stone. This way you can get a very beautiful and unique tombstone and often you just have to pay for the processing itself. Usually, such stones are sent to crushers. As it is becoming more common for burial sites to be used again, why not use the stone again. There are many times also a great cultural-historical value in existing stones and old stones should gladly remain in the original environment.
Such a stone you either find yourself at cemeteries, cemeteries or come up with a proposal and we will arrange for you. When you have chosen a used tombstone, you will contact us and we will sit down together to decide what the stone should look like as a memory for your loved ones. Then we take care of everything that needs to be done. An old tombstone that is used again contributes in different ways, it consumes considerably less energy than for a new stone or for an imported stone.
By shopping with us you get a very good quality product and you also save money and time.
More to care for tombstones!
Some common mistakes should be avoided to keep tombstones beautiful and long lasting.
- Avoid washing tombstones in inclement weather, as there is a high risk of “frost blasting” and rust, etc.
- Use a flower pot when you want flowers near the stone, so you avoid soaking or plant nutrition in it.
- Use a suitable brush when washing a sanded stone to avoid minor damage to it
