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.

These green monuments are suitable for a burial memorization and are made from materials that are non-toxic and readily biodegradable.

Monument Engraving Services
We employ the area's finest engraving experts to ensure that your loved one's memorial matches the quality they deserve. Our team can handle letters that are knife-cut, frosted outlines, hand-tooled or hand-drawn, and many more styles. This is what distinguishes us from many other monument shops, and has helped keep us around since 1951.
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.
See What Satisfied Customers Are Saying About Our Granite Monuments in Astoria
"I want to congratulate your letter carvers (the double process V-Sunk Lettering) and the panels added to our family monument to match the existing print was very impressive and very well done. The lettering is legible and so crisp that I am so very pleased. The job was completed swiftly and needed no corrections perfect. I spoke to your son Michael who was so courteous, understanding and helpful to me in my time of sorrow and I thank him for the swell job done."

"Your staff at Supreme Memorials did an excellent job inscribing our dad's name on the tombstone in Resurrection Cemetery Staten Island New York. Unfortunately, my dad passed only one year after you mad the stone for my mom. I really appreciate the personal service you gave to us, but I hope never to have to use your service again (really LOL) but if I do need a monument or if a family member or friend needs this type of service I will highly recommend you."
"I wanted to take time out of my day to sincerely thank you guys for a job well done. As you know our grave site goes back to 1897 in green-wood cemetery and I still can not believe that you matched the typeset carving that is already on the stone. It is really nice to know that you take pride in your work."
