Common Monument Styles
Upright memorials are designed with height in mind, giving the memorial high visibility within a cemetery. They are able to be created in all shapes, sizes and colors. Additionally, upright monuments can provide a large surface area for engraved messages or images.
Slant markers are a piece of granite that is straight back with the front angled in a wedge-like shape. This is an economical way to place a memorial that is still taller than the bevels or flat markers. If you prefer the slanted shape but want the monument to sit up taller, a base can be placed underneath just like the upright memorials.
Bevel markers have a slanted face with the back edge raised higher than the front to give a small upright appearance that allows easy reading when approaching the marker. This style of marker features a polished face on the top and rock pitched edges, and typically sit between six and eight inches above the ground.
Flat Granite or Bronze
A flat marker consists of either granite or bronze and is usually set flush with the ground. Most memorial parks require a bronze marker that is attached to a granite base. Some upright cemeteries have a special section for flat markers, but depending on cemetery regulations you can choose granite or bronze.
