Headstone Foundations--Montrose Township Cemetery requires a cement foundation underneath every headstone or monument. Montrose Township Cemetery officials install a cement foundation for every headstone or monument.  The purpose of a foundation is to help ensure the headstone or monument remains secure. The foundation also protects the headstone or monument from being damaged by lawn care equipment. 

A foundation fee of $.35 per square inch shall be paid at the Montrose Township Office, 11444 N. Seymour Road, before headstone installation. A foundation order form must be filled out at the Montrose Township Office. All foundation fees shall be paid before installation. 

Montrose Township Cemetery does not install headstones or monuments. Be sure to make arrangements for headstone installation before the headstone is delivered to Montrose Township Cemetery. Cemetery officials cannot accept delivery of headstones, since they do not provide installation services.
