At Design Monuments Company, we offer many different types of cemetery monuments for your loved one. Monuments are a great way to remember someone’s life by giving them the honor they deserve. Listed below are the different types of cemetery monuments that we offer:


  • Uprights– Placed on a granite base and then are set on a concrete foundation. They can vary greatly in shape and size. We offer single upright headstones and double uprights headstones. Single uprights are usually taller while double uprights are usually wider and less tall. tend to be wider than they are tall. Different cemeteries may regulate the size, shape, and colors of uprights.


  • Flat/Flush– These types of monuments lay flush with the ground. They are set on a concrete foundation several inches below the surface of the ground. You may choose a variety of colors, sizes, designs, and custom options for this type of monument


  • Bevel/Pillow– These types of monuments are similar to flat memorials but have a slightly slanted front. They often sit on a granite base and have a higher back end. There are endless varieties of shapes, sizes, and designs.


  • SlantsThere are two types of slanted monuments: “nosing” and “full face” slants. The “nosing” slants have about a two inch flat area on the front that may be polished or rock-pitched texture. “Nosing” slants can be set on a foundation or also on a granite base. “Full-faced” slants do not include a nosing on the front. “Full-faced” slants must be put on a foundation and a base. Both types can be designed in a variety of different ways.
