How long do we have to leave the ground to settle before we erect a memorial headstone?

6 months if the headstone is going directly onto a burial grave. NOTE: If there is a concrete plinth (looks like a pathway) at the back of the grave, the headstone can be fitted immediately after a burial. In the case of cremated remains a memorial can be erected immediately after the burial of ashes.
