Grave/Burial name confusion..please help!

Hi all,

I am new to this website, so forgive me if Im in the wrong place or asking an obvious question!
I'll make it simple...

I attempting to find my grandmothers grave and headstone. I know the cemetery and plot etc all online, however it appears to be under her husbands name....not hers. I havent seen the actual grave, so just going by records. He never died for many years later and was cremated.

What could this mean?
could it be that is under his name as he paid for it? Or that there is no named headstone?

Im wanting to take my elderly father to see it, as his mum died when he was a child, and he has never seen it before. But I dont want to go all that way, when in fact there is no headstone, or struggle to find the actually grave.

Any help on this matter, will be gratefully received!
