Customer Question

Hi was after a bit of advice, My father died Aug 2012 he has been buried in a family plot with his mother, father & sister. We need to have a piece of marble added to the original headstone so we can have a my fathers name added, my auntie (dads sister) is the deed holder and is refusing to give us the deeds to have this done unless we pay for my uncle-in-law (who is still living) to add extra marble for him and also when the extra marble is added they want us to leave a space for the uncle-in-laws inscription to be added before my fathers. So there will be inscriptions for the 3 people who are buried there before my father then a blank space for the uncle-in-law then finally inscription for my father.

I don't think that this is right or acceptable.

I have along with my sister explained our feelings to my auntie whos reply was do and pay as they want or my father stays in a unmarked grave.

Any help would gratefully appreciated
