We Create Custom Headstones & Memorials in Mirani
We Create Memorials That Last Generations
Have you recently buried a loved one, but you’re not sure how to decorate their final resting place? Looking for something bespoke that reflects the life they lived? Everyone deserves to be commemorated and remembered in the right way after they pass on. At Enduring Memorials, we provide advice on what’s possible with memorials, monuments and headstones – before creating the final piece. We have a strong relationship with Mirani Cemetery and understand their regulations regarding gravesites.
Operating locally since 2001, owners Jamie and Lenita Stewart support Mirani residents with personal and compassionate service in what is often a very difficult time in their lives. We not only create plaques, monumentals and custom memorials – we also restore graves, decorating them with accessories whilst providing a whole range of other related services. The work we do carries on the traditions of others that have come before us; with our premises having housed monumental stonemasons for over 100 years. To find out what this really means, reach out to us when you’re ready.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to buy a headstone before burial in Mirani?
When burying a loved one in Mirani, there is no requirement to build a permanent headstone, memorial or monument straight away. Choosing the best way to commemorate their life can take time, so while you’re deciding, a temporary monument can be placed on the gravesite. This is usually a simple wooden cross bearing the deceased’s name. You then have up to six months to replace this with a permanent structure, created by a qualified mason or tradesperson in line with local law policy. As soon as you’re ready, get in touch with us at Enduring Memorials where we can help you choose and create a fitting tribute.
Does Mirani Cemetery have rules around memorials and monuments?
Yes. Mackay Regional Council has a set of rules which dictate the erection of monuments and memorials at Mirani Cemetery. They advise on who can create these pieces including the specifications, materials, positioning and maintenance requirements. They also stipulate the length of time that a temporary monument can remain before needing to be replaced with a permanent structure. This requires its own planning and application before being constructed. At Enduring Memorials, we’ve been through this process many times, so call us when you’re ready to begin.
