Chicagoland Jewish Cemetery Monument Information

Rules, Regulations and Guidelines for Use of Grave Markers, Headstones, Granite Monuments and Lawn Level Markers Within Cemeteries and Memorial Parks In Chicago, Illinois and surrounding areas

Jewish cemeteries in Chicagoland have their own unique guidelines, rules and regulations. As a Chicago Jewish memorial dealer, Kornick & Berliner Monument Company can answer your questions about the use of upright granite monuments, flat and lawn level markers, bronze markers, mausoleums, headstones and tombstones at most cemeteries. Call 773-764-7600 for assistance.

Some cemeteries permit single or individual lawn level markers while others permit single and double (companion) lawn level markers. Certain cemeteries permit upright monuments while others allow flat markers only.  Other cemeteries require that the grave stones not only be flat with the ground but they must also be made of bronze.  It is important to talk with Kornick & Berliner Monument before purchasing graves or a headstone to ensure you can have the type of memorial you want.  Because we are a Chicago Jewish monument dealer, we can give you an all-inclusive quote so that you will know the total price for placement of the memorial in the cemetery.

Kornick & Berliner Monument Company has been designing memorials, monuments, markers, tombstones and headstones for decades. Our years of experience delivering and installing monuments in the Chicago area has provided us with the knowledge to help you understand the memorial guidelines for your particular cemetery.  For a quick answer to your question, call us at 773-764-7600.  We are happy to explain the requirements and procedures as they pertain to your particular cemetery or situation.
