Custom Gravestones & Grave Markers In Forest Hills
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 Forest Hills 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.
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.
