Custom Gravestones & Grave Markers In Hempstead
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 Hempstead 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.

"Your staff at Supreme Memorials did an excellent job inscribing our dads 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."
"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."
