A cemetery memorial is a personalized gravestone used to honor someone. Remembering and paying proper tribute to a loved one after they have passed away is a major decision that should not be made hastily.

Depending on how you want to remember your loved one, you can choose from a variety of memorial options. Budget, design, inscriptions, material, and size are a few examples. However, it is critical that you take your time when selecting a cemetery stone so that you can select a memorial that best honors the life of your loved one.
Because not everyone understands how to select the best quality cemetery stone, it is best to consult with professional memorial specialists. To help you narrow down your search for the perfect cemetery stone, we will now discuss the three most common memorial options.
One of the most common types of memorial is a headstone. They are intended to identify the person or couple buried in the cemetery. They are typically made of granite, but can also contain bronze. These memorial stones stand upright, allowing the information on the headstone to be easily read when passing by.
Headstones typically include the deceased's name, date of birth, date of death, and, in some cases, an epitaph. Depending on the available space, they may also include a one-of-a-kind design. The size of a headstone can also range from small to very large.
Headstones are available in a variety of colors, including gray, pink, black, and brown, to name a few. It's always a good idea to select a color that is meaningful to your loved one.
Monuments are typically larger versions of headstones; however, these come in sculptures. While monuments of the same shape as headstones are possible, they can also be customized to form a statue.
A monument is intended to serve as a reminder of a deceased person. It narrates their life story. It also contains the same information as a headstone, such as their name, birth or death date, and epitaph. It does, however, use images, designs, and other wording to tell a person's life story.
A grave marker is typically a flat marker made of granite, bronze, or a combination of the two materials. It is typically smaller and less expensive than more extensive upright headstone or memorial options. These can be flush with the ground or placed on a foundation above ground and read only when standing over the grave marker. These are primarily used to identify the deceased.
