Monuments, Markers & Lettering

With our in-house monument division, we make it easy for you to memorialize your loved one’s final resting place. You can choose from a large selection of quality monuments, markers and memorials that best fits your needs, and budget.

We can also make arrangements for installation of temporary markers, marker repair, restoration and final lettering on existing monuments.

Types of Monuments and Markers

Upright Monuments 

Upright Monuments

Upright monuments consist of the die and base. The die is the top part of the monument that sits on the base. The tops are usually serpentine, oval or straight, however other styles and custom shapes are also available. The base is the lower part of the monument and generally has a polished top, sawn bottom and rock sides. 

Slant Markers 

Slant Markers

Slant markers are cut with a slanted face and are taller than the bevel marker. Slant markers are available with or without a base. 

Flat Markers 

Flat Markers

Flat markers sit flush with the ground. They are also known as grass or flush markers. Flat markers are generally required in Memorial Parks and in Veteran areas of cemeteries. 

Benches 

Benches

Benches are an ideal choice in areas where people pass or gather. They are an excellent option in areas such as parks and other public places where typical monuments may not be suitable. 

Veteran Markers 

Veteran Markers

The Department of Veterans Affairs provides headstones and markers for the graves of veterans anywhere in the world and for eligible dependents of veterans buried in national, state veteran or federal cemeteries. Flat bronze, flat granite, flat marble and upright marble markers are available to mark the grave of a veteran or dependent in the style consistent with existing monuments at the place of burial. Niche markers and medallions also are available to mark columbaria used for the inurnment of cremated remains. For more information, please visit http://www.va.gov

Cremation Urn Memorials 

Cremation Urn Memorials

Cremation memorials are specially designed to hold one or more cremation urns for ashes. Popular options are garden benches and personal columbarium’s. Some cremation monuments are hollow and have a panel that can be removed for cremation urn placement. 

Custom Memorials 

Custom Memorials

Modern technology now allows monuments to be shaped, quite literally, into any form you can envision. Techniques such as sandblasting, shape carving, laser and hand etching, now allow intricate scenes and portraits to be placed onto the stone.
