Memorial Stone Foundation Installation Fees

The information below is provided to assist family members of individuals interred at Mount Hope Cemetery with the process of installing memorial stones.

All memorial stones in Mount Hope Cemetery require the installation of a concrete foundation prior to the installation of the memorial stone. In accordance with regulations established by the New Jersey State Cemetery Board, all foundations for memorial stone at Mount Hope Cemetery are installed by the cemetery, rather than by the contractor who creates or delivers the stone.

Most of the orders for memorial stone foundation installations at Mount Hope Cemetery are made by memorial stone companies, rather than by individuals. However, if you have a question about foundation installations, please do not hesitate to contact the Mount Hope Cemetery directly at info@mounthopecemetery.org, or by calling 609-575-0032.

Foundation Installation Fees:
$1.00 per square inch of foundation surface area

The fee, including materials and labor, for installing a memorial stone foundation is based on the surface area of the foundation. For example, the foundation for a memorial stone with a base measuring 32 inches by 12 inches would be $384.00, (32 inches x 12 inches= 384 square inches, x $1.00 = $384.00.)

Once the foundation has been installed, the area around the foundation will be filled in with topsoil and grass seed will be planted.

Any additional landscaping services, such as the removal of any bushes or trees from the gravesite, or re-grading of the grave, may require an additional fee. An estimate for these additional services can be made upon request.
