MONUMENTS, HEADSTONES AND PLAQUES

Complete Care

 

As part of our “Complete Care” ideal, we provide Monumental Masonry for a timeless memorial to a loved one. Employing the latest technology, we offer a range of options to ensure your design is personal and appropriate.

Our full time monumental mason is available for consultation either at our office on Devon St East, or in your own home.

Ashes Options

 

Cremation Areas allow for the interment of Ashes and the installation of a flat plaque or small headstone. The size of these monuments is strictly controlled and therefore your design choices can be somewhat limited. These types of memorials still allow for the recording of two inscriptions, and even for small photos and traceries. You still have the freedom to choose granite colour and font style as well.

All of our Cremation Plaques and Headstones come with highly polished edges which retard the growth of lichen and moss, helping the monument to look its best for as long as possible.

Headstone Options

 

Headstones come in a wide range of styles and shapes. Depending on the individual Cemetery by-laws there may be restrictions on the size and height of the monument that is allowed to be installed. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

All of our Headstones come with a solid granite base instead of the older style concrete and plaster bases. Granite lasts a lot longer than concrete bases and retards the growth of moss and lichen.

Designing a Memorial

 

The best place to start when choosing a monument is either talking through your ideas with us, browsing our online gallery and online designer or spending some time at the local cemetery.
Take some time to consider the following:

  • Memorial Size and Shape: Depending on the person, you may select the traditional headstone shape, or have something completely different in mind. Decide early on whether or not space may be required for a second inscription at a later date.
  • Granite Colour: Black, Grey, Blue Pearl, Red, White and many other colours are available.
  • Inscription: Wording of the inscription is very important – especially if there is to be a later addition.
  • Font Style: Block letters or script – we have a range to select from.
  • Lettering Colour: Silver, White, Gold – other colours may be available on request.
  • Traceries: These are engraved and painted pictures of roses and angels etc. There is a huge selection to choose from.
  • Laser engraved images: These are a black and white reproduction of a photo and look best on black granite.
  • Photo Ceramic: A photo of the person printed on long lasting ceramic.
