Often referred to as headstones or gravestones, upright monuments serve as a prominent and traditional memorial choice. Today, these memorials are typically constructed from long-lasting granite. Their tall stature makes them easily visible, even from a distance. With plenty of room for inscriptions, the monument can display the deceased’s name, birth and death dates, along with heartfelt messages or epitaphs. To add a more personal touch, upright monuments can be tailored with unique engravings or laser-etched imagery that pays tribute to the individual’s passions, pastimes, or accomplishments. This customization ensures the monument is not only a place of remembrance but also a reflection of the life lived.
