Cemetery headstones for a grave or memorial are a gift that will last forever and will be viewed by family members and friends for generations to come. Every memorial is as unique as the person it was created for. Gravestones and markers come in a wide variety of types, sizes, shapes, colors and materials. Below is a list of some of the more popular styles to help you in your selection. Let us help you with a memorial that is appropriate, personal and affordable.
We can provide emblems and designs that depict hobbies, civic and/or fraternal activities, and images of all religious beliefs.
Upright monuments are the most common type of cemetery monument used today. They are larger than other grave markers and can commemorate one or more names. The display is usually rectangular, but custom shapes such as hearts & crosses are also available
Slant grave markers are a variation of the standard upright design. Similar to the upright headstone, the slant headstone is easily seen from a distance. They are shorter than upright monuments and offer greater stability. Slant gravestones can be used with or without a base.
Flat Granite Markers
These monuments are designed to lay flat on the ground. Separate vase units are available for flowers. These headstones combine both affordability and versatility.
Bronze Grave Markers are not only chosen for their classically elegant appearance, but also because they are easily customizable due to the various available design options. Depending on the cemetery policies, they can be ordered with a 4 inch thick granite base affixed to bronze plaques.
Sometimes the general type of monument doesn’t suit your needs. In this case, we can custom design your monument to the size, inscription, shape, material & color that is desired. We can provide emblems and designs that depict hobbies, civic and/or fraternal activities, and images of all religious beliefs.
