Selecting a Monument
Choosing a monument and headstone after the loss of a loved one can feel overwhelming. There are so many choices…size, shape, granite color, designs, cost. Below are a few steps that we hope will help you.
What types of headstones are allowed in the section of the cemetery where your loved one is buried? Are the headstones upright headstones, flat cemetery markers or unique shapes and sizes? This will be a good indication of what is allowed but always check with the cemetery to confirm before you begin looking for a headstone.
What appeals to you?
Take a walk around the cemetery and look at other headstones. When you find something you like, take a picture with your phone and keep it for reference.
