A double or companion monument or marker is one headstone that marks two burial plots next to each other. These memorials are normally for a husband and wife but are applicable for siblings, or any two people who were connected in life as they are in death. These custom designed memorials are handcrafted by Rome Monuments' skilled artisans and available in many different styles and shapes. Talk to a monument designer at Rome about etchings, engravings, portraits, epitaphs and inscriptions that enhance the beauty and personalize the message on the monument, including symbols and imagery that convey the specific nationality or religion of the deceased. At Rome, you can select from a wide variety of granite colors for both traditional and cremation memorials in different price ranges.

Our goal with every companion cemetery memorial we create is to memorialize each individual on the memorial and to create a statement of remembrance of what these two people achieved together as part of a family. Our cemetery memorials tell a story of the past so that future generations can remember with great comfort and pride memories of their family. Companion cemetery memorials and gravestones can be created in the following styles depending on the rules and regulations of the cemetery:
Flush Memorials: A flush cemetery memorial and gravestone as the name conveys will be set flat with the contour of the ground.
Bevel Memorials: A bevel cemetery memorial and gravestone is an above ground memorial traditionally no taller than 12 inches and has a 2 inch slope.
Slant Memorials: A slant cemetery memorial and gravestone has a slanted face and is traditionally taller than a bevel memorial. Unlike a bevel memorial, a slant has a smooth back which can be carved and lettered.
Upright Memorials: This will consist of a top piece called a die and a bottom piece called a base. An upright cemetery memorial provides a family with the maximum surface area to create a personalized tribute.
