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.
