Memorial Styles

Our Wide Selection of Customized Cemetery Memorials

Upright Monuments

Upright monuments consist of two pieces. The top piece is called a tablet and a second piece of granite called a base. Monuments offer the benefit of standing up so they are easy to see in the cemetery. Also, monuments offer the most area for engraving and design.

Slant Memorials

Slant style memorials are desirable for those looking for something that stands up in a way that is easy to read and spot from a short distance. However, unlike monuments, they are designed to not need a second piece of granite as a base.

Bevel Memorials

Bevels come in the same general sizes as flush markers, however they are designed (like slants) to sit above the ground. They have a slight angle or "bevel" to the top, which makes them easier to read up close. However, they do not stand as tall as a slant marker and are generally less in cost than a monument or slant in the same type of granite.

Flush Memorials

Flush memorials are typically the most economical compared to the other options in the same type of granite. These granite markers are designed to be installed on lawn level, allowing for mowing over the top of them. Many cemeteries have sections that are "flush only" and require this style. The area available for design is similar to that of a bevel memorial.

Bronze Memorials

Bronze memorials are often required at certain cemeteries. These cast bronze plaques and vases are attached to a granite base that is then installed flush to the ground. Bronze memorials are beautiful and durable, however they are more in cost than a granite only flush memorial.


Benches come in a wide variety of choices. These monuments consist of stone slabs held up by pillars on either side, or a single large marker. Some can even hold cremation jars as well. Benches are very nice looking, however they are closer to upright monuments than flushes in cost.
