How am I to choose a monument?

Choosing a monument is an investment in time and money and should be made with great care and attention.

Since each cemetery has its own rules which stipulates the size and the type of monuments that can be erected, it is advised to consult a monument maker before purchasing your cemetery lot, since the monument maker knows the rules of the cemeteries. It is in your rights to become familiar with the rules of a cemetery before purchasing a lot.

You are under no obligation to purchase your monument from the cemetery or the funeral home. In fact, we recommend that you wait until all is settled before purchasing the monument if it was not done beforehand.

What are the different types of monuments?

Standing monuments are available in a variety of style, shapes and size, giving room for creativity and personalized drawings. They are truly works of art. They come in single or double format.

The cushions (beveled markers) are halfway between the standing monuments and the flat marker. They come in single or double format and can be personalized with symbols and inscriptions.

Flat markers can be personalized, however their surface is smaller. Because they sit flat at ground level, they are harder to find.

Finally, there are multi-piece complexes which serve for many generations, mausoleums, and columbariums.

Where cemeteries allow, we can install crosses, statues and vases.
