Above ground burial is certainly popular in our area, Granite and Marble Mausoleums are the only option designed specifically for above ground use. They also double as the memorial making them competitively priced vs concrete vaults, foundations, monuments and coping.
So many options are now available. Whether ashes are buried, kept at home or scattered there is a way to memorialize. Benches have become our most common type of cremation memorial and we can install them anywhere; at the cemetery, home, office, park or golf course.
Cremation allows us the flexibility of working beyond the cemetery gates.
Horizontal or vertical double monuments are most often used by couples. It allows us to tie the two individuals together with a unified appearance.
To vase or not to vase: We discuss vases often when looking at double monuments. Doubles are traditionally 2 single stones separated by a plinth and vase or a large single stone with vases on the side.
Creating Lifelong Memories
We pride ourselves on crafting custom monuments that are designed to tell a story. All monuments and mausoleums are made of granite or marble. Installed on steel re-enforced concrete foundations.
Markers, upright monuments, unique cremation options and mausoleums are all available.

The serpentine top single monument is our most traditional, however many other shapes are also available. Hand carved angels, Fish shaped monuments, crosses can all be used to illustrate the important events in one's life.
Single monuments can be made into double monuments later, however the do not have the same look as ordering a double initially.
