This type of stone is the most common type of memorial selected to commemorate a loved one. It has incredible durability, luster, and depth. When you add the near endless possibilities of customization and multiple color options, this stone really sets the bar for creating that perfect memorial for your loved one.
Flush Markers are set at ground level and are designed to be read/viewed when standing at the grave site.
Bevel markers are raised slightly above the ground and are easier to see than flush markers. With a slight angle to them they are easier to read and will stay cleaner than a flush marker.
Larger in design that markers and elevated on a base, slanted memorials can be seen from a farther distance and can have more information along with larger lettering due to the increased size. Being elevated they will stay cleaner longer than any marker.
Upright granite monuments are one of the most popular options. These are often largest and easily seen in the cemetery. They are usually set in two pieces. Their size allows for large lettering, lots of information, customized designs, and even provides a back side engraving opportunity as well.
We also offer benches for dedications and/or memorials. We often setup benches in public locations in memory or dedication of a loved one or even a foundation.
Looking for something a little less traditional? We offer a full range of custom designs and shapes for headstones as well.
