Black Swan Monuments FAQ
How soon should I place a marker?
This is a very personal question. Some people choose to mark a final resting place a few weeks after a death has occurred, while others choose to wait a few months. Though the cemetery may need some time to prepare and install the foundation, you can design and order the monument at any time. We will take care of scheduling the installation with the cemetery.
My loved one was a veteran, what resources and options are available?
Most veterans are entitled to a military marker or emblem. Your designer can work with you to determine which type of marker or emblem will best compliment the monument you have in mind. Your loved one may even qualify for some reimbursement on installation costs. Black Swan Monuments is proud to offer the Veteran’s Legacy Program which allows us to facilitate the process of ordering and filing the necessary paperwork to ensure that your loved one receives all of the memorialization benefits that they are entitled to, within the county, state and federal benefit systems. The Veteran’s Legacy Program is offer at no extra cost to Veteran’s families.
What about my pet?
Pets are family. We have a variety of options that allow you to pay tribute to these faithful companions. In conjunction with our pet cemetery, Peaceful Pastures, we can offer beautiful and affordable niche spaces for urns, or ground burial. Our cemetery allows for placement of custom monuments for pets, just as human cemetery does.
