Hello,
My husband passed away in December and was buried in my family/neighborhood cemetery 200 plus miles away. The first time that I will be back there will be in June, but probably will not be ordering a gravestone for at least a few months after that (probably even longer). And, of course, it will take more months for the gravestone to be finished and put in place. What are some common ideas for marking his grave? Are there some type of "temporary" or fairly inexpensive grave markers that can be put by the grave now?

What have other people done in similar situations?

Thank you.

Cemeteries have various rules. Find the group or person in charge of upkeep and be guided from there.

My husband was buried in a Veterans Cemetery, they put a temporary marker until headstone was placed.
Harry Chickpea advise is spot on, call the cemetery and ask

The funeral home or cemetery usually puts up a temporary metal marker.
