About Menucha Monuments
A tradition of honour and respect:
Erecting a monument over the grave of the departed is an ancient tradition in many faiths and cultures. The monument formally marks the resting place in a permanent way, and serves as a symbol of honour and respect for the soul of the departed. There are many customs and traditions about the stone; its appearance, the wording and when it should be erected. Our team at Menucha Monuments upholds values of cultural respect and sensitivity, assuring that your memorial to your loved one will be built and inscribed with reverence and attention to tradition.
Comfort through understanding:
Choosing a monument can be an overwhelming experience for families who have lost a loved one. At this trying time, we take special care to guide you every step of the way, making the process as easy as possible for you. We start by meeting with you at a place of your choice to help you choose a design, granite and wording that pay tribute to the life and values of your loved one. We keep you updated throughout the process, ensuring you peace of mind that the memorial will be completed on time and with meticulous attention to detail.

We source our granite from leading granite suppliers in Australia who perform quality checks throughout all steps of the manufacturing process. This ensures that each piece of granite is free from faults and tested, cut and polished to the highest standard.
Carefully planned inscriptions:
An essential part of a monument is the everlasting words of tribute engraved in stone. While the wording can be simple or intricate, what is always important is to ensure the accuracy and aesthetics of the draft before engraving. At Menucha Monuments, we personally create every draft and engrave every stone - inscriptions are never outsourced. Our supervising stonemason is also a professional artist and designs each draft to look beautiful, in addition to following rigorous processes to make sure all wording is correct. The draft is shared with the family for discussion and approval before any engraving takes place.
We specialise in matching existing inscriptions where required, ensuring that the new and old inscriptions are the closest possible match in terms of font, size, layout and colour.
At Menucha Monuments, we believe that having positive, open relationships with our clients, suppliers, sub-contractors, the cemeteries and the community as a whole are crucial.
We believe these relationships should be underpinned by trust, transparency and goodwill.
To this end we do all we can to ensure that we meet our clients’ needs in a personalised and sensitive way, taking the time to meet with each client and their family at a time and location convenient to them. We understand how important quality, value and reliability are to our clients and so allow enough time for work to be built properly and on schedule, giving our full attention to every detail along the way.
We understand the importance of following the legislated occupational health and safety
guidelines as well as the Occupational Health and Safety Policy of the cemeteries and our
own Work Health and Safety and Risk Management Plan and Procedures Policies, to ensure the safety of all workers on our sites, of our clients and of the public. We review these policies regularly to make sure we are maintaining best practice to ensure the safety of all at all times.
We are committed to honest and ethical behaviour. We support a number of local charities and and believe in the importance of giving back and helping others.
