Granite Colors & Monument Styles

You may use the link above to visit our Online Monument Catalog, where you may search by monument type, or by collection title. You may also try your hand at designing your own monument by using the Online Monument Designer. Please let us know if you need assistance with your selection or monument design.

Granite is a natural material, and it can vary from one section of a quarry or vein to another. You may view some samples of granite colors that we typically stock under the GRANITE COLORS menu tab. Please be aware that all computer screens display color differently, so no web site can provide a true representation of any granite color. Please call or visit us today, and we'll be glad to show you samples of granites so you can appreciate their beauty and see how they actually appear.

Half Serpentine Monuments

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

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 beveled 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 they are flat or flush against the grass at the grave site.

Ledgers

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

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

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.

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.
