Markers and monuments can be created in many shapes and styles and can be personalized with engraved messages and photos. We can assist you with creating a unique tribute to your loved one.

Understanding the types of markers and monuments.

Cemetery markers have been used throughout recorded history to mark the final resting place and pay tribute to the life that was lived.

Markers generally come in two types; upright markers which rise above the ground, and flat markers, which are set flush with the earth.

These markers and monuments are created for individuals, companions and families.

Cemetery markers can be crafted from granite or bronze. Many colors of both materials are available.

Vases can be affixed to any type of marker for the placement of floral arrangements and decorations.

Special markers are designed to hold cremated remains for burial inside the monument itself. These markers can be placed on a burial space within a family plot.

You may be interested in a larger monument such as a bench or family mausoleum. We work directly with a quarry and can assist you in the entire process of designing a custom marker or monument.

Ceramic Photo Cameos

A weatherproof porcelain cameo made from a cherished photo can add a beautiful, personal touch to a marker or monument.

The cameo is permanently affixed to the marker, and is created through a special firing process that ensures it will stand the test of time.
