Cemetery Monuments And Markers

Markers are installed flush in the ground and mark one or two graves. They are typically made of granite or bronze. Some cemeteries require bronze only and have certain restrictions. We will assist you with this. Below is a sampling of the various markers.

Why memorialize?

  • To provide a physical place to visit and reflect on your loved one’s life and know that they will always be “nearby”
  • To assist with closure and emotional healing
  • To provide a visible sign of how we value life, marking a permanent record of existence
  • It keeps the memory of your loved one alive
  • Allows you a symbol to explain the meaning of life and death to children
  • Traces your family heritage for generations to come

Value and Assurance vs Price and the Unknown

Buyer beware when purchasing from someone you don’t know. Many companies will try to use price and require full payment in advance and deliver damaged or misspelled memorials and some do not meet cemetery regulations. Internet companies may even deliver to your front door.
