Factors That Affect the Cost of a Headstone, Cemetery Memorial or Monument
Every memorial we make is custom to decisions that each family that we have the privilege to work with will make in regards to:
Color of granite
Quality of granite
Installation and Shipping
Set a budget and we will design within that budget.
What is the perfect size memorial?
A “standard” memorial size does not exist. As a result, we encourage all of our families to measure memorials in the cemetery prior to selecting a size so that they are viewing the memorial in its natural setting. Memorials look larger in our displays than they will look outside.
What color and quality is the granite?
Granite comes in different varieties, colors, and grades. It is sourced from domestic and international quarries, each with unique characteristics and variations in durability and color. Granite’s “grade” or quality is a measure of the material’s durability, density, structural integrity, consistency, suitability for cutting, crafting and finishing. More durable varieties of granite are best for crafting memorials, and higher grade, highly durable, highly consistent granite varieties are typically higher priced - because they will not absorb moisture, will not discolor and will not fade. More common and readily available granite varieties and colors are usually priced lower (more supply). Harder to find granite varieties and colors are often priced higher. Source location and shipping distance also affects price.
The quarries we rely on in the United States and Canada are rigorously selected for high durability and rich color. Different quarries yield different mineral compositions in the stones, accounting for variations in durability and color.
What is the style and texture of the memorial?
We have our own in house artists that can create any style of memorial you desire. The more complex the shape of the memorial the higher the cost. In addition, the shape of the memorial can be finished in many different textures such as polished, tiffany, sawn, rustic, blued, etc., that can change the cost of the memorial.
What is the craftsmanship level?
The range of custom memorial and headstone design options is limited only by your imagination and your cemetery’s limitations and rules. Most any artistic design can be carved into granite or crafted into bronze. Granite carving processes can be simple or complex, one-dimensional or multi-dimensional. Higher priced monuments usually include complex artwork, portraits, laser etching, hand etching, porcelain portraits, artistic carving, detailed imagery, and custom designs. The simpler the craftsmanship level selected, the lower the memorial price.
Flat Granite Grave Markers
Flat, flush, or lawn-level grave markers are precision cut slabs of granite that lie flat on the ground at the head or foot of a grave. We often use classic or traditional design elements to enhance the beauty and personalize the message on the marker. They can be for any number of traditional and cremation graves and come in a variety of sizes, styles, shapes, and granite colors.

Bevel/Pillow Granite Grave Markers

This makes them easier to locate and read from a distance in a cemetery. Sometimes they have a granite base to support the marker. We use classic or traditional design elements to enhance the beauty and personalize the message on the marker. They can be for any number of traditional and cremation graves and come in a variety of sizes, styles, shapes, and colors.
