Somerset accident claim solicitors for accidents with a headstone
If someone close to you has died, it’s a very stressful and upsetting time. And if you are put in charge of any of the legal details, such as settling up the will, it can be even harder. Sometimes you can just want to stay in bed, not get your head around intricate legal wording.
Another job you might have to do is select the headstone. There might have been some money left in the will to pay for this, but it probably won’t tell you what words to use, or the preferred kind of stone. You’ll need to choose from different stones like marble, limestone or slate.
Then once you have chosen the type of stone you need to know what colour you want. Marble comes in black, white, brown, pink and grey. Black or white are popular choices. You can have the words filled in with gold or leave them plain.
So Many Choices
Then there is the wording. You can choose just the person’s name and date of birth and death, or you can add a poem or other inscription. You can also decide to put on carvings like angels or flowers. Finally you might want to add a vase for flowers or other addition too.
When you go to the monument makers, they will show you photos of different styles and sizes of monuments. They may invite you into their workshop to see examples, or they might have a show room.
If you go into the workshop be very careful. There will be chips of stone flying around as it’s carved, and lots of dust that you don’t want to breathe in. There is lots of heavy and sharp machinery, and the monuments themselves are made from huge blocks of stone, which could fall on you, giving you concussion or broken toes. You could get cuts and slices from out of control machinery, or even blindness if a chip of stone flies into your eyes.
