Why Choose Graystone Monuments
Our monument shop is your family’s representative through the entire process of dealing with the quarry (geometry, finish, color, scheduling, and delivery) and preparing the engraving design with your family. When required, we provide the design information to the cemetery for review and approval.
In accordance with the cemetery’s requirments, our shop will schedule and coordinate the installation of your family’s monument. 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 headstones and markers.
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.
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 of room for engraving or stylistic details.
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.
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.
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.

“Thank you so much for the beautiful job you did on my parents’ headstone and for being so helpful and friendly. Once in a while I do get clients who are in need of a headstone – I will be more than happy to share my experience with them and to send them your way!”

“We are so happy we chose Graystone Monuments. After visiting and talking with several other monument companies in Stockton, we chose Graystone. We want to thank them for their patience and genuine care and concern to do the job right and give us what we wanted for our finished product. We felt comfortable doing business with them and never doubted their competence. They gave us a beautiful finished product that our entire family is pleased with. I am proud to refer them to anyone who may need their service. We made numerous changes before the final product was submitted and never once did they seem impatient with us. There are not many places in Stockton to choose from, but if you need this type of service, this is the company to go with. This was the first time for them mounting a stone at the Chinese Cemetery but they can be proud of the work they have done. Thank you Rodney, Chad and Jeanie for everything. Job well done! Sincerely, Al and Debbie Lee and the entire Lee Family”
– Lee Family, Stockton, Ca
“Graystone Monuments did a beautiful job with the grave stone for Louis Brovelli (my Husband). It is a good size and the printing is very clear and legible. They also made one for me and I appreciate their work.”
– Catherine Brovelli, Linden, Ca
“I give Graystone Monuments of Stockton a 5 Star rating because of the beautiful monument they made for my Husband’s grave. It also included my name and roses intertwined with poppies at the top, just like my Mother’s stone.”
– Doris McCaughna, Lodi, Ca
“Rodney, My sister and I want to thank you so much for a job well done. It’s beautiful! Please send our thanks to Jeanne for her help as well. Sincerely, Francine O’Connell”

“We recently made a purchase from Graystone for my Mother. We had compared prices on the web and visited a Modesto company (which is much closer to our home and the cemetary). At first I was reluctant about the price I saw on the web for Graystone because they were 34% cheaper for the same exact grass marker. The cost was exactly as stated on the web site. From the time of purchase to the setting of the stone in the cemetary yesterday was less than half the time quoted by the local competitor. Mom’s grave stone is beautiful. Your visit will be very professional, friendly and caring. After you have made your choices they will email you the diagram of what it should look like. You can ok this picture with your family until everyone says they like it, then let Graystone know you are ok with the design. I have looked to “Yelp” on several occasions, but this is the first time I have posted and I have nothing but positive things to say about this family company.”
