Somerville Memorials is experienced in assisting you with selecting and designing the appropriate Jewish monuments that uniquely reflect the Jewish faith, traditional customs, and rich cultural heritage. Since Jewish cemeteries often have specific requirements about the type of monuments allowed within their gates, our staff is well-trained and kept abreast of typical guidelines, including monument colours, shapes and sizes, to better advise you in your selection.
We understand the value and emotions associated with the headstone and believe in delivering quality service. It generally takes around 8-16 weeks to complete a customized headstone, though depending on your requirements, we can work with you on the timeline.
The headstone's cost varies according to how you customize it: size, type, material, and more. Learn about the factors that affect cost so you can be prepared on what to expect.

In many Jewish households, giving a Hebrew name to the newborn child is a prominent part of Judaism and is commonly found on Jewish headstones. The Hebrew name is inscribed underneath the "Here Lies" phrase on the headstone. In some cases, both the Hebrew name and the western name are inscribed.
