Custom Gravestones & Grave Markers In Mount Vernon
Trying to choose gravestone or grave marker can be a tough decision, which is why we try to make it as easy as possible for you. We can create any sized or style gravestone to serve as a memorial for your loved one. Our designs are custom, beautiful, long-lasting, and will help you to remember your loved one for years to come. Below are just a few of our gravestones that we offer throughout the Mount Vernon area:
Upright headstones stand tall from the ground up and can be made out of various materials such as granite, brownstone, glass or marble. Most upright monuments today are crafted out of granite due to the natural strength and durability of the material.
Flat headstones are often referred to as ground-level headstones or grave markers. These headstones are flat and typically sit a couple inches off of the ground. Flat headstones are also commonly used as foot stone to a larger family monument.
There are many variations of slant-style grave markers. Cemeteries have specific rules and regulations about the sizes of slant that can be used. A slant monument is normally low to the ground, lifting only 1-2 feet high, with the polished face sloping at about a 45-degree angle. Slant memorials are always supported by a foundation, which raises the slant marker off the ground as to not hide the lettering. The inclined inscription surface of slanted headstones not only contributes to the prominence of the inscription, but also, unlike the flat or flush marker, it sheds the rainfall and nature keeping it clean.
Most often, bronze monuments are similar to flat headstones, but are made out of cast bronze instead of stone. In some cases, bronze cemetery markers are doweled and pinned into a granite base. Bronze is also used frequently for statuary work on cemetery memorials.
Growing in popularity, angel monuments come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Most angels are hand sculpted and hand carved. While many businesses offer angel monuments that are mass produced in China and India, Supreme Memorials, Inc. hand carves each angel in our facility. We have the ability to custom design your angel monument all the way down to the details of the face.
Green Monuments offered by Supreme Memorials, Inc. include natural boulders, river rocks and locally quarried granite. These green monuments are suitable for a burial memorization and are made from materials that are nontoxic and readily biodegradable. The materials are harvested locally, reducing the amount of energy required to transport them. Supreme Memorials, Inc. can help you make a green choice for a tombstone.
Reviews About Our Grave Monuments in Mount Vernon
"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."
Mrs. Florence C.
"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 sons name on my parents 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
"Mike thanks for the excellent job your staff did on our stone. Your service was much faster then I expected. Even though you could not promise me the work to be done for mothers day because of cemetery permits that are needed to work on the stone. To my surprise I received a phone call on Friday before mothers day letting me know my moms name is on the stone."
