Monuments


Memorials are important not only to remember our loved ones who have passed on, but are also important for those who are left behind.

A memorial honors and commemorates the life of those who have died. Memorials are an age-old tradition that has long provided people with a place to focus their grief. Memories of a loved one are precious, and memorials are a practical way of perpetuating these memories, and providing a sense of place and a tangible record for family, friends, and generations yet to come.

When selecting a monument, there are six decisions that need to be made:


1) Type

Select the monument that would best suit your needs.


2) Size

Dimensions vary dependant on the type selected. Please refer to our chart below, where the dimensions of the monuments are listed in inches.

3) Polish

Polish refers to the amount of sides that will be polished. The sides that are not polished will remain with a rough edge. Therefore, if a polish states:

1: the front or top (for a flat or pillow marker) of the monument will be a smooth polish
2: the front and back of the monument will be a smooth polish
5: the front, back and 3 showing sides will be a smooth polish

4) Inscription

All laser etching at the time of the monument purchase are included in our cost, regardless of the size and information. Think about what information you would like inscribed that would represent your memorialization. We also have a multitude of graphics that can be placed as well.

Please be aware that any inscription that takes place after installation, such as a name or date of death, is an additional cost at the time of need.


5) Porcelain Photographs (Optional)

Photographs are able to be made of porcelain and then affixed to the monument. These photos are made so that they have a resistance to fading or weathering. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes. They can be purchased in black & white or in color. Please refer to the chart below for sizes, which are given in inches:
