Tombstones Bay Ridge NY

When you need to choose a monument for a family member, there are many different choices you'll have available - but none of them are as renowned or timeless as hand-carved memorials. Our team is experienced enough to create any figure or figures into both granite memorials or headstones that help to create a one-of-a-kind monument that is beautiful, timeless, and honoring to the deceased.

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.



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.

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.

"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."

"I have always remembered your store on the corner of 4th avenue and 17th street since I was a kid. We would always drive by and I wondered who ever goes shopping for a tombstone. Your shop is like a landmark in the Park Slope area because everybody knows the larger than life Blessed Mother in your window. When mommy passed away the funeral director (name withheld) informed us he only recommends Supreme Memorials because they are still a family business and they provide excellent customer service. He was right, and this is why I am writing this thank you note. Thank you for the care your staff provided to our family, thank you for the excellent job, thank you for the level of service your staff gave us, thank you thank you thank you."
