A base stone adds the finishing touch to a gravestone. For a stylish gravestone, you can choose a base with a neat cut-out for flowers. A polished surface makes the base stone easy to clean. Some burial spots have a base that is pre-installed by the parish. This means that there is no need for a base stone and the gravestone can be installed directly onto the frame.
The Gravestone Guide contains lots of tips on choosing and maintaining a gravestone. It explains the history of gravestones in more detail and describes the types of stones and their features. The Gravestone Guide also features a collection of topical articles and news.
