TYPES OF MEMORIALS


FLAT HEADSTONE OR MARKER OR GRASS MARKER

THESE ARE USUALLY 24"X12" AND 4" THICK. THEY ARE SET INTO THE GROUND, EVEN WITH GROUND LEVEL. STONES LIKE THESE FOR CHILDREN, CREMATION GRAVES, OR OTHER SPECIAL GRAVESITES MAY BE OF DIFFERENT SIZES. ALMOST ALL CEMETERIES ACCEPT THIS TYPE OF MEMORIAL. GRANITE PHOTOGRAPHS CAN BE ADDED TO THESE.


MONUMENT OR UPRIGHT MONUMENT

THESE INCLUDE MANY SHAPES & SIZES, BUT ALWAYS STAND STRAIGHT UP FROM THE GROUND. SOME ARE MAGNIFICENT & ORNATE. YOUR CEMETERY MAY OR MAY NOT ALLOW THESE. SOME CEMETERIES ALLOW THEM ONLY IN CERTAIN SECTIONS. FIND OUT BEFORE PURCHASING ONE OF THESE. YOUR LOCAL MONUMENT DEALER CAN ALSO GET YOU THIS INFORMATION. GRANITE PHOTOGRAPHS CAN BE ADDED TO THESE.


BENCH

THESE COME IN VARIOUS SIZES AND SHAPES. THEY ARE  BEAUTIFUL & CONVENIENT, ESPECIALLY IF FAMILY MEMBERS LIKE TO LINGER A WHILE AT THEIR LOVED ONE'S GRAVESITE. SOME CEMETERIES DON'T ALLOW THESE, HAVE PARTICULAR SPECIFICATIONS, OR ONLY ALLOW THEM ON CERTAIN SECTIONS. GRANITE PHOTOGRAPHS CAN BE ADDED TO THESE.


SLANT OR SLANT MONUMENT

THESE STAND UP FROM THE GROUND, BUT ARE NOT VERTICAL LIKE MONUMENTS. THEY HAVE A SLANTED FRONT SIDE. THEY CAN BE SET ON A BASE, AS ABOVE, OR SET ON A CONCRETE FOUNDATION. THEY COME IN VARIOUS SIZES, AND CAN BE USED FOR A SINGLE GRAVE, OR FOR TWO GRAVES AS A COMPANION PIECE. SOME CEMETERIES DON'T ALLOW THESE, HAVE PARTICULAR SPECIFICATIONS, OR ONLY ALLOW THEM ON CERTAIN SECTIONS. GRANITE PHOTOGRAPHS CAN BE ADDED TO THESE.


LEDGER OR HALF-LEDGER

THESE ARE LARGE MEMORIALS WHICH ARE SET EVEN WITH THE GROUND LIKE MARKERS. A FULL LEDGER IS USUALLY 30"X72" AND A HALF-LEDGER IS USUALLY 30"X36". THE ADVANTAGE OF THESE IS THE AMOUNT OF ROOM FOR LETTERING AND CUSTOM DESIGNS. SOME CEMETERIES DON'T ALLOW THESE, HAVE PARTICULAR SPECIFICATIONS, OR ONLY ALLOW THEM ON CERTAIN SECTIONS. GRANITE PHOTOGRAPHS CAN BE ADDED TO THESE.


 

BRONZE MEMORIALS

THESE ARE METAL, AS OPPOSED TO STONE. THEY CAN BE MOUNTED ON A GRANITE BASE, OR SET ON A CONCRETE FOUNDATION. THEY CAN BE PURCHASED WITH OR WITHOUT A FLOWER VASE. MANY VETERAN'S MEMORIALS ARE MADE OF BRONZE. SOME CEMETERIES DON'T ALLOW THESE, HAVE PARTICULAR SPECIFICATIONS, OR ONLY ALLOW THEM ON CERTAIN SECTIONS. SOME CEMETERIES ONLY ALLOW BRONZE MEMORIALS.
