Questions & Answers on Blue Granite Headstones, Gravestones

What is the best stone material for a gravestone?

Granite is much harder than marble, and it is not brittle. That means it is less susceptible to chipping and cracking. It also means that design elements will not weather in the same way, keeping your loved one's memorial legible and in good condition for decades to come.

People may have also buried bodies 6 feet deep to help prevent theft. There was also concern that animals might disturb graves. Burying a body 6 feet deep may have been a way to stop animals from smelling the decomposing bodies. A body buried 6 feet deep would also be safe from accidental disturbances like plowing.

Is the wife buried on the right or left of husband?

Typically, the husband is buried on the left, whereas the wife should be on the right, as you're standing at their feet. The position isn't ordinary, and it's the same that couples have while they're getting married. In some cemeteries, the tradition hasn't disappeared, and it's the most common for couples.
