Information on Headstones and Guidance on Cemetery Grave Stones

Headstones have always been an important part of our history, for many reasons. These tributes serve as more than just symbols to mark where a person has been lain to rest. For some of us, they are our final mark on the world, as well as a link for our descendants to learn more about their family history. It is true that a lot of the history we have gathered comes from tributes left of the days before. Even if the person the marker was for was not famous, their last mark gives a world of information about the era they lived in, how they lived, and one can even gather a sense of the persons personality, simply based off of how the marker was decorated.

That is not to say that these tributes are nothing more than links to the past. For our present survivors, they serve as a steadfast symbol of our lives. It has even been discovered that when a person has a permanent place to visit when in mourning, a place that is built specifically to pay respect to a lost loved one, they are able to cope with the grief and loss and heal quicker than those that do not. Many families also find a great feeling of comfort in being able to provide this final remembrance for someone that was very dear to them. The process of ordering the cemetery headstone in itself can be therapeutic, as families work through the options to find what would perfectly suite their loved one, they can gain a sense of closure in knowing that they are creating a tribute that will not only outlast time, but that is also befitting to the person whom it memorializes.

The history of the tradition of any headstone is long and rich and, therefore, headstones are known by many other names that have gone in an out of popular usage over the years. All of the following terms refer to the same headstone products listed in this section: headstones, grave marker, tombstones, flat headstones, companion headstones, headstone for two, double deep marker, vertical double headstone, veterans marker, memorial marker, memorial headstone, gravestones and even family marker. These markers are available in individual sizes, companion sizes, as well as in sizes suitable for infants and children. All gravestones can be designed to accommodate a beautiful bronze vase that is optional with every purchase. There are a variety of design and several other options, such as the color of bronze for bronze on granite memorial, letter style, and emblem options.

Creating a memorial headstone serves several purposes. It is closure for those who are left behind, a remembrance of those that have gone, and a link between the two. It goes without saying that the memorial should not only capture the information of the person for whom it is created, but a sense of their personality as well. With the variety of options offered by Memorials.com, you can create a tribute that will become a place to visit for many generations to come.

Today you can see many varieties of these headstones and cemetery grave stones in any cemetery across the U.S. Many families even visit a few different cemeteries to see how the different styles of monuments appear. Creating a memorial tribute for a lost loved one may seem like a daunting task, but we at Memorials.com strive to make the experience as easy and fulfilling as possible. We offer a variety of styles and options to ensure the monument created will not only reflect the life of the person it memorializes, but is also a tribute the whole family can be proud of.


Quick Headstone Question and Answer Section:

What should I ask the cemetery before ordering a headstone?
There are three important questions you should ask the cemetery before ordering.

2. What color can I select for the granite?
3. Should the grave marker be bronze on granite or only granite?

Can you tell me the difference between a pre-need and an at-need headstone?
Pre-need headstones are when the person is still alive. The main reason being to secure today's price and to get everything in order and decide themself on their last resting place.

At-need headstones are once someone has died and the headstone is purchased.
