Types of Memorials


Types of Memorials

"Memorials" covers a wide range of offerings to commemorate people and events. Cemetery monuments/memorials normally include single units, husband and wife doubles, or whole families that may be together in a central area.

"Memorials" also covers other items in a cemetery, or a church or community, which are dedicated to a person, events or in memory of a person or event. An excellent example is a veterans memorial which is dedicated to the people and the ideals they fought for.

Styles of Memorials


Upright Monuments

come in innumerable sizes and shapes to accommodate single, double or multiple names. They can also be more easily customized for any special design or purpose.

Slant Monuments

are seen with and without bases. They also can be customized in shape and size and purpose.

Bevel or "Pillow" Markers

Flat or "Grass" markers

are usually set with the top surface level with ground level. However they are sometimes placed on top of a concrete foundation. Many cemeteries have specific guidelines about how these may/must be installed.
