Upright Memorials are the most traditional memorial shape. It consists of a horizontal slab of granite – the base and a vertical engraved piece – the tablet. The traditional thickness of a tablet is six to eight inches, usually the same as the thickness of the base. Often an upright memorial will include one or two vases and traditionally they have a curved “serpentine” top. Upright memorials are sometimes made in other shapes, including hearts, double hearts and angels as well as some unique contemporary styles.
Most of the memorials we sell are custom made, meaning that the shape, color, finish and design of the memorial are entirely up to our customers. The pictures shown here are the memorials you will find on display as well as examples of our previous works displayed with the customer’s permission. Please feel free to use these for ideas but keep in mind that the possibilities and infinite.
