When an internment is to take place in this type of plot with a concrete surround, these days the curbing is removed to allow access by a digging machine. If the ledger top was removed hand digging can occur as there is room for the internment between the curbing but today this does not seem to happen. As the structural integrity of the concrete work has been compromised, the best option is to remove the balance of the concrete and mount the headstone on a new base and foundation berm. Here we have used a granite base of contrasting granite for a striking effect and hand engraved the inscription to match.
