Determine the requirements and regulations of your cemetery. Many cemeteries have monument requirements. Some cemeteries only allow flat markers in either granite or bronze. For help finding your cemetery's requirements please contact your cemetery representative or call us.
Determine shape and style desired. Memorials come in all sizes and shapes. There are single monuments for an individual and companion monuments for a couple. There are four basic types of memorial; grass markers, bevels, slants, hearts, benches and uprights.
Select the color of granite.
Granite color varies depending on where it was quarried. We import granite from all over the world and offer a selection of beautiful granite colors from North America. We have a large selection of colors available. Memorial price depends, in part, on your choice of granite.
To make a memorial design your family's personal tribute to a loved one, please consider several important questions:
1) What design elements should your memorial feature?
2) Would you like to inscribe a family saying or religious verse?
3) What other personal elements are important for your memorial?
4) would you like a ceramic picture tile?
5) would you like vases on your memorial?
The best way to answer these questions is to let our professional staff guide you through the process.
Depending on style and granite color, your memorial can take from six weeks to six months to be made. Popular granite colors and sizes are often already in inventory, so many memorials can be delivered in 8-12 weeks.
