The prices of tombstones vary from R9 800 to R20 000 depending on the size and choice of granite and accessories you would like to add. Different colours of granite are available. Rustenburg granite, a dark coal grey, lightly speckled granite, is the most popular and least expensive.
Polishing greatly influences the price of the tombstone, as well as any other dressing of the stone. The “rustic” effect for instance is more labour-intensive and could be more expensive.
In the past, it has been most important to wait until the soil has sufficiently settled before a tombstone can be erected.
New cemeteries have mainly berm sections which means only a headstone is erected. Tombstones are therefore erected as soon as the concrete strips are completed. The soil on the grave is leveled and grass is planted on the remainder of the grave.
