Service Options

Our goal is to help you feel good about the care you are providing to your loved one’s gravesite. We offer several packages to help you achieve the right balance for your situation.
 

Discounts:

  • We love our Seniors, and are happy to offer a 10% discount to all clients aged 65+.

Additional Fees:

  • Grave Care is a regional business.  We serve Westborough, Southborough,
    Shrewsbury, Hudson, Hopkinton, Northborough, Framingham, and Marlborough. 
    Towns outside of this area have an additional fee, which can range from
    $10 (Worcester) to $40 (close to Boston).

We will work with you to choose the level of care you would like it to receive. Some people are looking for a simple yearly cleanup, while others prefer a monthly check-in. Our maintenance options give you the flexibility to decide what works best for you.

 

Most gravestones are Singles:  think of a letter you receive in the mail - a "portrait" orientation.  Some are Doubles:  these stones are wider than they are tall - "landscape" orientation.  Our prices assume Single stones (for materials & work required), but we are happy to work on the Doubles - give us a call and let's talk about what we can do for you!

Please note that HMGC abides by all cemetery regulations.

GRAVESITE CLEANING

$200 (Single or Double stone)
Over time, headstones and markers start to grow lichen, moss, and other organic material.  While some people feel this adds to the beauty of the grave site, it grows into the pores of the stone and can cause permanent damage.  HMGC uses a combination of hand cleaning and a safe biological cleaner (D/2) to kill and remove the growth, as well as any ground in dirt. Because we manually clean the stone (no power washing!) with nylon brushes and lots of elbow grease, it can take 4 visits per stone.  The cleaning should last at least 5 years - in fact, we've never had to revisit a stone because of new growth!
