Cemetery Monuments & Memorials For Your Loved Ones
Obelisks are tall and have square bases. The obelisk tapers upward toward the sky and will sometimes include a decoration such as a statue, pyramid or ball near the top. In many cases, instead of a decoration at the top of the capital, there will be an urn. The obelisk is made up of a base, capital, and shaft and can range from very short to more than 90 inches.
There are many types of benches used in memorialization of loved ones. Bench gravestones can be made in all shapes and sizes and are often used for fundraising sites, as accents to estate plots, and in the interior or exterior of private family mausoleums. Benches can also be used for entombing cremated remains of your loved ones.
Families looking for traditional burial monuments, but still want to be cremated, now have options. Supreme Memorials, Inc. provides many different styles of cremation memorials ranging from bench memorials to upright family monuments and private family columbaria.
Monument Engraving Services
Most headstones, monuments, and tombstones are engraved with sandblasting techniques, but Supreme Memorials is one of the few companies on the east coast that has the expertise to match the classic timeless hand-carved stones that has been used for thousands of years.
Once the team is on site, we carefully review our worksheets, the contract, and the cemetery permit to verify the information we have on your engraving request. Our carvers then mask the monument with the stencil and transfer the letters and numbers onto it before carefully cutting the lines with a sharp stencil knife. When the material from carving the letters is removed, these open areas are then sandblasted with silica sand until they are the same depth as the surrounding letters. If the work requires hand-carved lettering, the process is slightly different - we still protect your memorial and we still use a template, but the letters are cut using a hammer and a chisel.
Reviews About Our Cemetery Memorials in Astoria
"I was pleased to receive notice that the work on my family's gravestone was completed. Last week, I had the opportunity to make a visit to Holy Cross Cemetery and see the actual finished stone. I would like you to know that I am extremely pleased with this fine workmanship and care with which my problem was solved. My Family and I are very appreciative of your kindness, understanding, and advice in solving this sensitive problem."

"It is really nice to know some companies are still family run. Dealing with a small family run company is a dream come true. During the process of engraving my son's name on my parent's monument whenever I need assurance or had a question, I was always able to get one of the owners on the phone, with-out going through the hassle of call screening and addressing my concerns to fifty people before getting an answer. I hope I never need to use your service again but if I do need a monument or I know someone who needs a monument or lettering service I will highly recommend your company."
Mr. & Mrs. J. Carroll
"I have attached a picture of my brother's Monument. Joe, I cannot begin to tell you how beautiful the monument turned out. It is just perfect and everyone in the family is appreciative of the effort that you and your family put forth to make the monument a possibility. I was correct in assuming that your work was above and beyond better than any work that most people from that area had ever seen (Niagara Falls NY). You will always have a business reference from me and I know that if I should ever need a monument in the future, Supreme Monuments is the only place I will go."
