Headstones, Grave Markers & Gravestones
Headstones from us cost hundreds (or in some cases even thousands) of dollars less than those offered by other dealers, and they meet all of the highest memorial industry standards. Headstones are designed to be installed in any cemetery and preserve your loved-one's memory with beauty and dignity.
Headstones serve to help families cope with their losses. By establishing permanent memorials, families can practice the sound advice that psychologists typically give to those going through the grieving process. Experts say, even for people whose bodies have been cremated, having a special place in which to especially remember a special person, is a important for the emotional health of people who loose loved ones. Our grave markers and headstones can certainly provide that comfort.
But, besides their emotional value, headstones also play an important role for the world's future historians. The study construction and beautiful designs of headstones and monuments assures that lives can be documented – and remembered – for decades, or even centuries, after death.
Grave Markers are available in two basic varieties, bronze and granite, and both are designed to be elegant, long-lasting permanent memorials. Bronze headstones are good for permanent memorials because they typically include bronze plates with a special memorial designs and lettering that names the deceased as well as the dates of birth and death. These plates are then attached to granite bases and then installed in cemeteries as beautiful memorial headstones. (And it should be noted that all bronze headstones are available with a bronze vase -- at an extra charge -- if the customer desires one.) Granite headstones, meanwhile, are perfect for memorials because they are made from the world's strongest, most elegant natural stone, and their sturdy construction is sure to last for generations to come.
Gravestones also are sold in a number of styles, each with a unique memorial purpose. Infant and child headstones, for instance, are specially designed to preserve the innocence of youth. And companion headstones offer a great way to memorialize special couples who shared large portions of their lives together.
Headstones can be purchased "pre-need" or "at-need." Buying headstones pre-need has some advantages, but at-need buying is still a popular choice. Memorial Headstones that are purchased pre-need are engraved with a person's name and date-of-birth, and the death date is added later. Buying grave markers in this fashion protects family members against possible price increases that may occur. In addition, many customers enjoy the peace of mind that comes from having the arrangements for their headstones.
