Monument Cemetery memorials range from simple to elaborate multi-piece upright monuments. Where cemetery regulations allow, memorials can also include crosses, statues, vases, and remembrance lamps.
The word monument stems from the Latin word “monere”, which means “to remind”. It is an expression of loving remembrance and a historical statement of a life that was known and loved. The monument is a lasting way to say “We care!”
Increasingly, people are choosing to purchase their own monument before the need comes. By planning ahead, you can select the style, size and colour you prefer. A personalized design, which you can help to create, can reflect your beliefs, values, or what ever is meaningful to you. What do you want to tell future generations about yourself and your family? This is your opportunity to make your personal statement for history. Most memorials are made from granite. This stone is durable, reasonably priced, and available in a wide range of colours, including black, grey, near white, and a variety of reds, pinks, browns, greens, and blues. Bronze is often used for flat markers and for embellishments to memorials.
