How do you choose the appropriate memorial for your loved one? We will help you create a unique and personal design that will be a lasting memorial to the one you love. Geards Funeral Home has a huge headstone showroom full of different shapes styles and colours of memorials. Whether you like a traditional granite stone, a bronze plaque or some of the more modern materials, we have something to suit everyone.

We hold the sole agency in the Far North for Permanite and Permalite. These products are guaranteed to last for 100 years without colour fading. If you can create it on a computer then we can also create it on a memorial, just as it would appear on the screen.

Some things to consider when planning your headstone purchase are:

choose a size, colour and shape – will it need to match up to an existing stone?
(council by-laws may limit the size of your memorial, please ask us for advice)

choose a finish - polished, sawn, rocked
(finishes have different looks and require differing amounts of maintenance)

pick a base – granite, concrete, with/without vases
(bases can include one or more flower vases and / or an inscription)

writing your inscription & epitaph - we can provide a layout of what it will look like
(an inscription generally includes the names, date of birth, date of passing, relationship to spouse and family and a suitable sentiment, we can help you with a suitable verse to compliment your text should you desire it)

add photos and / or customised artwork
(you may wish to add a photo or customised artwork, please ask us for further information)
