Bronze Death Date Scrolls for Grave Markers

Bronze Date of Death Scrolls

Ordering Your Bronze Date of Death Scroll

Like automobile manufacturers, there are many manufacturers of bronze grave markers. The first step in ordering your bronze death date scroll is to determine which bronze memorial manufacturer made it. This may be difficult as some monument dealers who sold the bronze memorial are no longer in business or the cemetery may not have records of who manufactured it.

Not to worry. We'll help you find the right manufacturer for the bronze memorial and issue a quote to you for the bronze date scroll.

NOTE: Although this may seem like a tedious process to provide the exact information we require, it is necessary to ensure you get the correct bronze death date scroll for your loved one's bronze memorial.

Here is what we need to get you a quote for the bronze death date scroll:

  • A photograph of the complete bronze memorial design
  • A close up picture of the bronze death date scroll
  • The measurements of the scroll

1. Photographing the Bronze Scroll and Memorial

Before photographing the bronze grave marker and date of death scroll, make sure the area to be photographed is fairly clean. It is also best to ensure there is plenty of light to get a good photograph. Here are a couple of sample photographs of a bronze grave marker and a close up of the bronze date of death scroll.

Provide a photograph of the entire bronze memorial design

2. Measure the Bronze Death Date Scroll

It is important to accurately measure the existing bronze date scroll so we can recommend the correct death date scroll to be ordered. Please measure to the nearest 1/16th of an inch and provide the measurements in written form.

Here are some DO's and DON'Ts:

DO NOT submit a photo with a tape measure or ruler laid over the scroll. It is hard to accurately read these due to the tape not being flat on the bronze scroll or the angle of the photo in relation to the tape measure.

DO NOT submit measurements in metric form or decimal form. Use standard measurements with fractions.

DO submit the measurements as in this example:

Length: 4"
Height: 1-1/8"
Screws/Holes: 3-1/2" center to center
Text: 3/4" H


Again, please don't submit photos with a ruler/tape measure laid over the scroll.
