3 Reasons to Order a Headstone in the Winter

Most people are surprised to learn that the cemetery headstone business is actually very seasonal. After all, it isn’t typically possible to install a memorial monument until the spring thaw. As a result, many families choose to wait until spring to order a headstone for their loved one.

Although waiting until spring for installation is a reality in western Canada, there are significant advantages to placing your order ahead of time that most are not aware of.

 

1. Take Your Time

Sometimes, families feel rushed either to get the order in during the busy spring season or to ensure the memorial is placed in the fall before the ground freezes. Doing your research and considering your options over the winter allows you to Take Your Time and involve family members in the process to ensure you make a decision that everyone feels comfortable with.

 

2. Beat the Spring Rush

For many families, the closure of seeing their loved one’s monument installed in the cemetery is an extremely important part of the grieving process. When a loved one passes away in the winter, ordering their headstone ahead of the spring rush is the best way to ensure it is installed in a timely fashion after the ground thaws in the spring.

 

3. Save Money

Like many other industries, most monument companies update their prices over the winter to adjust for inflation. By ordering before the end of January, you can typically take advantage of the previous year’s prices, which can save you up to 3%. In addition to beating the price increases, some memorial companies will also run sales promotions over the winter, as it is a slow time of year for their business. Doing some quick research online can help you find a reputable company willing to offer you savings on a granite memorial during the winter months.

As spring approaches, there is still time to take advantage of winter savings on a cemetery grave stone from Frontier Monuments. Please give me a call at 306-580-3977 or explore our website for more information.

  • "Adam was recommended to me by a Regina funeral home. Adam was professional, sensitive and very prompt in his communications with me. As winter settled in he needed to delay the completion of the cleaning and refused my payment offer until the job was completed. Sadly, I lost my Mother in Regina over Christmas and again I reached out to Adam for a marker for her. He was so compassionate and understanding, taking care to listen and hear what my sister and myself wanted and lead us through this process. Even though I am not in Saskatchewan and due to the present situation have no ability to be there anytime soon Adam ensured the marker was created and laid the week before Mother's Day. He then sent pictures to me. So very thoughtful. "

  • "I wanted a unique headstone for a unique person. I created a custom design with the guidance from Adam Reeson. This was all done via the Internet since I do not live in the province in which it was to be installed. Adam cheerfully assisted me through the process with numerous suggestions of ways to improve the appearance and to cut costs. All of my numerous questions were very quickly responded to without my feeling like I was imposing on him. The result is a unique, beautiful, and everlasting tribute of which I am very proud. Thank you Adam."
