  • A stone setting is normally arranged between nine and twelve months after the loss of a loved one.
  • While most stone settings are held on Sundays, to enable family and friends of the deceased to attend, they can be scheduled to take place during the week as well.
  • As Sunday is the most popular choice, please contact the Burial Society well in advance to book and confirm a date.
  • Stone settings can either be held between 9.45am and 11.15am, or between 2pm and 4.15pm (depending on the season and dates in the Hebrew calendar).
  • If the stone setting is being carried out by an approved officiant, please ensure you confirm his availability for your preferred date in advance of contacting the Burial Society.
  • If you wish the Burial Society to provide an officiant, please note that there is a booking fee for this service.
