The methods of headstone fixing

Health and safety is a major concern when it comes to installing adult’s and children’s headstones and memorials in cemeteries and other settings around the UK. Professional, high quality installation is required to prolong the service life of headstones and gravestones and make sure they don’t fall over, potentially causing injury. The National Association of Memorial Masons (NAMM) has created regulations which must be adhered to when a gravestone is being installed.

There are two main methods of fixing headstones: dowel and monolith fixing. The monolith method involves part of the headstone being buried into the ground and then set within a pre-cast concrete shoe. On the other hand, dowel fixing is a process where the gravestone is made with stainless steel dowels which are fixed onto a concrete base as a ground anchor.
