As a general rule, the overall length and width of a monument in Mount Jerome is 78 inches x 30 inches. This is inclusive of the base, headstone and surrounds / kerbing. All headstones have to be a minimum 3 inches in thickness. There are two main exceptions to this general rule:
In the lawn grave section of the cemetery no surrounds / kerbing are permitted. Headstones have to be 36 inches in height, 24 inches in width and at least 3 inches in thickness. The bases have to be 38 inches in width, 12 in height and 11 inches in thickness. This exception affects section numbers 4 (part of), 5 (part of), 6, 5/6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32 (part of), 33 (part of), 55, 58 and 83.
When the grave number starts with the letters "CRB" the only difference to the above general measurements is that the length of the monument (inclusive of base and surrounds / kerbing) must be 84 inches. This exception affects section numbers 451, 452, 453 (part of), 454, 455, 456, 457, 458, 459, 460, 461, 462, 463, 464 and 465.
Please consult with our office if you are unsure as to what size of a proposed monument is permitted. Notwithstanding the above, the correct dimensions of a monument are confirmed to a monumental company / stone mason when a foundation application is accepted.
