Markers & Monuments

 

We offer a wide selection of custom markers and monuments for you to choose from.

There are four basic styles to choose from Flush, Bevel, Slant and Traditional Upright Monument. With each style you will have four basic options that are involved with the purchase of any memorial; they are size, granite color, finish, and design. Typically you will select options in these areas based on your preferences. In some cases these decisions may be made automatically for you via cemetery restrictions.

The three areas of cost to be aware of with any memorial; the cost of the memorial as you want it, the cemetery's cement foundation or setting fee, and sales tax.

Each memorial is unique and priced according to size and color. Our pricing includes complete delivery to any Michigan cemetery. Feel free at any time to call for an estimate. We will do our best to answer your question to the best of our knowledge.

We also specialize in cleaning and restoring weathered headstones, as well as final date cuts.



 



We are proud to be a distributor for Patten Monument Company located right here in Michigan!

Flush Markers

Benefits

 
  • The cemetery has a consistent appearance
  • Flush markers make it easier to mow grass

 

Concerns

 
  • Lawnmowers may run over flowers, vases, or personal items left at the grave
  • Markers overgrow with grass just like a driveway or sidewalk
  • You need to be standing over it to read it, making it difficult to find a grave

 

               



 



Bevel Markers

Benefits

 
  • Above ground and easier to see than flush markers.
  • Slight slope to top makes it easier to read and will stay clean longer than a flat marker.
  • If 8” or taller they can be cored to receive cremated remains.

 

Concerns

 
  • You still need to be within 5 to 10 feet to read the marker making it hard to find.

  • A base at least 8" in height can be cored to receive cremated remains

 

Concerns

 
  • While the family name, children's names, or other information can be placed on the back it may limit the ability of mounting the Veteran's bronze plaque.
