We like to think that all of our loved ones rest peacefully in a cemetery after death. People take time to visit the cemetery to remember their loved ones and relatives who have been buried there. The grave stones are what help you remember your loved ones and identify them. A marker is placed on or near the grave itself. Cemetery headstones or markers are a way for the family to write something about the deceased person. Some families spend thousands of dollars on a monument while others spend hundreds of dollars. The cost of the marker usually depends on the size of the marker and the design. Some people may just have the name, date of birth and death of their loved one, while others may opt for bible verses, poems, stories and narratives. Still others prefer expressing their feelings of love through a picture on the cemetery headstones.

A headstone monument can be tailor made to suit the needs of the family. For instance, if your loved one enjoyed a particular sport such as football, you can request the monument company to carve or engrave an image of the football on the monument. If you are selecting a granite headstone monument or bronze headstone monument, request the engravers to carve the headstone according to your wishes. Some people have an engraved grave stone and carve it with common information including the person’s name and date of birth.

Cemetery headstones come in a variety of designs, styles, and colors. You can choose the headstone either by looking at the selection provided by the company, or request for a custom made cemetery headstone. Cemetery monuments can be affordable if you buy it from the right company. With a custom made marker you can customize and decorate it as you wish without making changes to the original design. Many engravers offer a proof so that you can see the design before it is engraved. If you want something different you request the monument company to make the necessary changes before it is sent for final production. Custom made gravestones offer a personalized touch of your loved one’s cemetery headstone. Remember, this is what your family and friends will see each time you visit your loved on at the cemetery. Make your loved ones marker a memorable one!
