What is a Grave Monument?
A gravesite monument headstone refers to an upright memorial headstone that is placed at a grave. Cemeteries generally refer to the upright memorials as monuments and the flat headstones as grave markers.
Monument headstones are usually made from granite and are available in a single or companion option. Companion headstones are made for two people.
The upright headstones consist of an upright granite slab where inscriptions are etched or engraved. The upright slab usually sits on a granite foundation or base. Check with your cemetery for requirements.
