What is a Gravestone QR?

A gravestone QR is a QR code which is attached to a gravestone. Its primary purpose is to allow more information to be told about the deceased person’s life. A regular gravestone will only allow for a small amount of text to be written about the deceased person. By including a QR code on the gravestone using a medallion or having it engraved gives you lots more options. 

What information can be included on a gravestone QR?

The options are endless really. Whatever can be included on a web page can be used. Most families upload eulogies, images, videos, condolence messages, the deceased person’s social media accounts and other information about the funeral

Can the funeral streaming link be added to the gravestone QR code?

Yes. The gravestone QR code can include the funeral streaming link for use by friends and family who cannot attend the funeral, and also added as a video recording for others to view in the future.

What types of gravestones can a QR code be used on?

The most common types of gravestone which a QR code can be added on are marble, stone and granite.

How can the QR code be added to the gravestone?

There are 3 ways to add the QR code. One – attach a medallion with the QR code on it to the gravestone. Two – have the QR code engraved on the gravestone using a laser engraver. Three – have the QR code sandblasted onto the gravestone. Please note for this option the size of the QR code must be larger to allow your smartphone’s camera to read the QR code.

How large must the QR code be on the gravestone?
