Family or Estate Monuments

These monuments typically display a family name and have multiple ledgers, bevel markers, slant markers or flat markers to represent individual members of the family.

Companion Monuments

These monuments typically have inscription panels on the face of the monument for individuals.

Individual Monuments

These monuments are typically smaller and are ideal for individuals. It is possible to place inscriptions on one of these monuments for two individuals, however space may be limited.

Half Serpentine Monuments

These monuments may be used for Family or Estate monuments, Individual Monuments or Companion monuments depending on the arrangment of the inscriptions and placement of markers or ledgers for individuals. It is also a nice way to feature a vase for flowers.

Wing-Style Monuments

These are popular companion style monuments and present a nice opportunity for a flower vase.

Slant Markers

These are called Slants due to the slanted face. This face makes the monument easier to read as a visitor approaches the grave from a distance. These are available in single and double sizes.

Bevel Markers

These are called Bevels because of the bevelled or slanted face of the marker. This makes the monument easy to read when standing at the foot of the grave site.

Flat Markers

These are also called Grass Markers or Flush Markers because the are flat or flush agains the grass at the grave site.


Grave Ledgers, also called Covers, are ideal for use with Family or Estate monuments where individual graves need to be marked. These offer ample room for inscriptions and dates.


Etchings are typically placed on black stones and may be created by hand with a diamond tipped tool or with the use of a laser. Etchings may be high contrast black and white, or they may be in color.


Benches are an ideal way to remember a loved on in a non-traditional setting such as a courtyard or other public area. Some cemetery lots may be large enough to allow a bench.

Mausoleums or Crypts

These may be large enough to walk into and may provide room for one to twelve spaces depending upon the size.

Columbarium or Cremation Monument

Most all monuments may be fitted with a cored space in the monument or base for storage of cremains. Some monuments, however, are specially designed for cremains. The small cremation bench and the larger columbarium shown below are examples of just two alternatives.
