Why Choose Graystone Monuments

About_Rodney

Our monument shop is your family’s representative through the entire process of dealing with the quarry (geometry, finish, color, scheduling, and shipping) and preparing the engraving design with you and your family. Where required by the cemetery, we provide the design information to the cemetery for review and approval.

Our shop coordinates the installation and scheduling requirements with the cemetery and performs the installation, when allowed by the cemetery. If any issues arise during this entire process, you have our full support and representation on your family’s behalf.

Because our monument shop designs, engraves and installs our own headstones, we do not have an extra tier of retail markup. This means we can provide you with very competitive pricing.

Types Of Grave Markers

Families have a great opportunity to select from a wide variety of granite and bronze monuments that provide a lasting individual and family legacy. The basic monument categories include grass (flat) markers, slant/bevel monuments, upright headstones, and custom memorial monuments, with each choice having its own esthetic and cost benefits. Let’s go over the basic styles and types of headstone and markers.

flat marker

Flat Marker

Flat markers can range from small to large footprints that provide the family the option to select a very economic memorial (making them favorites with many people) or go with a larger more elaborate design. Available in granite and bronze, these plaques can be as stately or simple as you wish, with a design that is personalized to your family’s wishes.

Headstones

Upright headstones are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. An upright memorial offers the family the ability to have a stone with a substantial profile while providing a significant amount room for engraving or stylistic details.

Slant Markers

Slant and Bevel memorials offer the family an optimal viewing angle for their stone. Bevel monuments (also referred to as Pillow Tops) have a less steep angle while Slants are often somewhat larger with a more steep viewing angle. The height and angle of the stone can be customized to meet the desires of the family.

Custom Monuments

Modern technologies and production capabilities have made a wide variety of design choices and options available to families. Bring in your ideas and we will work with you to make it a reality. Custom monuments provide the greatest creative flexibility for sculptures and special geometry within the space allowed by the cemetery.


Our Process

Step #1 – We discuss the type, style, location and cost of your memorial monument. Also, cemeteries regulate the size of the monument based on the size of your cemetery plot and cemetery maintenance policies. As part of this process, we coordinate the design process with the staff of your chosen cemetery.

Step #2 – After you have made your decision, we custom order the bronze from the foundry or the granite stone from the quarry. It usually takes about two to four months for us to receive the granite or bronze monument from the quarry or foundry, respectively.

Step #3 – In the case of granite monuments, while we are waiting for the stone to arrive from the quarry, we work diligently with you on a detailed engraving design for your memorial. Upon request, we will provide a full size plot of the design (at no additional cost) for your review before design approval.
