Cemetery Headstone Provider Checklist

Finding a cemetery headstone provider isn’t exactly a common task. Most people will only do it once in their lives, unless they had a bad experience the first time. You might be wondering what to look for in a quality and trustworthy memorial provider. While every family is different, and may appreciate one quality over another, we believe there are 3 basic principles every dealership should possess.

Memorial Headstones Highlighting the Past

Memorial headstones have a beautiful way of highlighting the best parts of the past, or someone's life. Have you ever stopped and taken the time, while walking through a cemetery to read a memorial's inscriptions? If you haven't, there is much inspiration to be drawn from there. We have no way of knowing what might be written on our own memorials someday, but we can strive to live like those words that will be written there.

Headstones: Buying Local VS Buying Online

It can be hard to know what to expect when you begin the search for headstones, or other memorials. That’s because, likely, you haven't purchased or even looked for headstones before. Walking through a cemetery, you wouldn’t know what work is behind all those beautiful grave markers. Many may not even realize all that goes into the creation of a monument, or what a reputable dealer will provide in their services. A memorial is a big deal, so it’s important to know what to expect when purchasing both from a local monument provider, and also if purchasing online.

Gravestones Remaining Timeless

Not many things in this life remain timeless, but quality gravestones seem to hold the title. Have you ever taken the time to notice, that not too many changes in the area of gravestones and monuments? You can see in recent years, the style has evolved a little, but traditional grave markers seem to always retain their charm. Their timeless beauty and tradition seem to live on from generation to generation.

Grave Markers: An overview for purchasing

Bevels, uprights, wedges, headstones, gravestones, monuments...they all fall under one common name... Grave Markers. Today, there are plenty of options for families looking for a memorial stone for a loved one. With so many options available, some may find it a little overwhelming, so we aim to help give a quick overview of what families might expect while shopping for grave markers.

Choices: Granite Bench Memorial... or a Headstone

When you think of a granite Bench Memorial, you probably think of a beautiful piece of art, made to memorialize someone who impacted the lives of those around them. Maybe placed in a local park, or in front of a museum, or a church yard. All of these are wonderful options, but did you know, many families are opting to erect a granite bench memorial, in place of a headstone? This isn’t the traditional grave marker, but can be both beautiful and practical.

A Cemetery Headstone Made with Care

Whether you are pre-planning, or purchasing for a family member who has passed, purchasing a cemetery headstone is important. You want your memorial stone to be perfect, and convey the loving memory of the special person being memorialized. A cemetery headstone will rest in the place where loved ones will come to grieve, find comfort, and remember beautiful times spent with their loved one, so that memorial you are creating...should be done with great care.

Memorial Headstones Aiding in Healing

If you have recently lost a loved one, memorial headstones might not seem important at the moment. We agree, and believe creating memorial headstones should come after the grieving process, not during. So many families have been rushed into planning and purchasing monuments or other types of memorials before they are ready. The process of creating a memorial for a loved one should be a meaningful process, and we consider it to be an honor to team up with families at such a time.

Creating Timeless Grave Markers

Grave markers are so important in the memorial process for many families. So...creating a headstone that will reflect the memory of your loved one is important, too. You don’t have to settle for poor quality to save money, and you most certainly don’t have to settle for poor craftsmanship, either. You can have it all, and your family deserves it. Grave markers are created in a variety of sizes, shapes, and designs. Your loved ones' marker can be as simple or as elaborate as you want them to be.

Gifting a Granite Bench Memorial

After the death of a loved one, it can be hard to navigate what comes next. In part, that’s because every family will celebrate or memorialize in their own special way. You can celebrate as simple as spreading ashes in a beautiful and significant place, and as big as a granite bench memorial in honor of your loved one. There is no right or wrong way to memorialize your loved one.
