The death of a loved one is difficult and stressful. When a loved one passes away, you want to honor them with a lasting and memorable tribute. At All Souls Mortuary, we offer a variety of options to pay homage to your loved one. We understand your grief and will help you through this challenging time as you select the headstone or grave marker that will fit your needs and your budget.
Headstones and Grave Markers
Headstones have been used for centuries to mark burial places. A headstone or grave marker not only shows the exact resting place of your loved one but also provides some information such as their name, date of birth, date of death, and other pertinent details. At All Souls Mortuary, we offer a selection of headstones and grave markers, including flat, slant, upright, and custom. We use strong, durable materials such as granite and bronze so that the headstone will last forever. You will find some options on our website. We are happy to create a custom headstone to fit your exact needs and preferences.
Granite and Bronze Designs
At All Souls Mortuary, we offer a wide selection of designs that you can incorporate onto a granite or bronze headstone. It is essential to create a memorial that will be beautiful and will celebrate the life of your loved one. You can choose from a selection of different colors for your granite headstone. We offer many options for embellishment, including flowers, wilderness, religion, children, military, and more, so you can design the best possible display. We can utilize one of our available choices or will make a custom design based on your specifications. If you have a particular idea in mind, we will work with you to develop it into the perfect headstone or grave marker.
If your loved one was cremated, you might need to utilize a cremation plaque. Some of the mortuaries require them. Cremation plates are usually small in size, often 3 x 5 or 4 x 6. You should include some basic data such as the name and birth and death dates. You can customize the plaque with several words and a small design or picture. You can also have a simple border. Check with the cemetery to learn the correct dimensions and guidelines for a cremation plate. We typically make cremation plaques using bronze. At All Souls Mortuary, we will meet with you to determine your needs and create a wonderful plaque that will commemorate the life of your loved one.
Tips for Choosing Headstones, Grave Markers, and Plaques
Verify the rules or guidelines in place at the cemetery. You need to make sure that you order a headstone that will properly fit the grave and meets the standards that the cemetery allows. Most cemeteries allow granite and bronze, but you may need a granite base for a bronze marker. Also, verify whether they allow embellishments and if they have any restrictions in place. At All Souls Mortuary, we will assist you with the process of creating a headstone or marker that is ideal for your loved one.
