On this page we offer a sampling of memorials collectively referred to as "markers." Your selection will vary depending on your circumstances - whether through your preference, cemetery regulation or because you wish to match an existing memorial.

As with the others, this page is intended only to give you a sense of what's out there, and an idea of what the product looks like.

Flat & Bevel Markers

Flat or "Grass" markers are set flush with the ground. Many cemeteries require flat markers for ease of maintenance. Check with your cemetery or with us if you are unsure of what you are allowed. Memorials sized for a single or multiple graves are shown.

Bevel or "Hickey" markers are similar to these stones, but they are raised above grade a few inches in the back and slope down an inch or two to the front.

Bronze Markers

Markers made of bronze and set in granite or cement are required at some cemeteries or aquired by choice.

We don't have any pictures of our work that we felt were good enough to post at the moment, although we'll be sure to add some soon (We've been providing bronze memorials for many, many years, but the age of digital photography is more recent). We routinely provide bronze memorials at competitive prices.
