Will the Funeral Monument You Have Chosen Fit?

It can be very easy to see a large funeral monument and think that it is the perfect way to mark the final resting place of a loved one that you have just laid to rest. But before you order such a large monument, you need to be sure that not only is it going to fit, but that the managers or caretakers of the cemetery will allow you to place such a large monument.

You May Have to Buy a Bigger Plot to Install a Funeral Monument

Because space tends to be a premium in most cemeteries and you generally only pay for just enough space for the grave and a standard headstone. You may find that the only way you can place a larger funeral monument is to pay for a bigger plot before your loved one is interred; otherwise you may have to be satisfied with a standard size tombstone.

Gravestones Have Changed Over the Years

Although we associate gravestones today with those we place at the head of a loved one's final resting place, they have not always been this way. The history of the gravestone dates as far back as Neanderthal man when they buried their dead in holes in the ground and then covered their bodies with stones to protect them from predators as the centuries passed many superstitious people continued this practice with the thought that these "gravestones" would keep the dead from rising.

Modern Gravestones Can Be Very Elaborate Affairs

Today's gravestones are far more elaborate affairs and include both single and double markers for couples who are buried side by side. We offer a complete range of memorial monuments for you to select from, all of which are hewn from natural granite and can be engraved with your choice of epitaph before they are delivered to you for installation on your loved one's grave.

Tombstones Are How We Preserve the Past for Future Generations

Tombstones are how we preserve the past for the future generations or in more basic terms; we mark the graves of those who have passed on before us with a grave marker to help future generations find out where they came from. When you walk through the graveyard in your hometown, you can trace a large percentage of your family's history bases solely on the names and dates engraved in the gravestones.

We Have Been Crafting Tombstones for Over 80 Years

We have been crafting tombstones for over 80 years. Our headstones are cut from solid granite after which we engrave the deceased person's name and life information into the face for you. We can now laser etch this information into to the face of the tombstone creating a legacy that will last for many generations of your family and make it possible for future generations of your family to trace their history in much the same manner as you have already done.

Where Were Your Memorial Monuments Made?

As with most things you buy these days, you can buy memorial monuments that have been made in factories all over the world. The trouble is that the stone or materials used to make these imported headstones is not of the best quality. At this point, you have to ask yourself if this is really how you want to honor the memory of a loved one, by purchasing a gravestone made in China.

Our Memorial Monuments Are Proudly Quarried and Crafted in America

We still feel that Made in America is something that we should still be proud of and because of this you will find that all of the granite used in our memorial monuments and headstones is quarried right here is the USA in the same tradition as they were when our family owned company was first established almost one hundred years ago in 1920.
