Monuments stand the test of time and will be honored by generations to come. At Premier Memorials, we understand the importance of the quality of our work and strive to always provide premium monuments, markers and mausoleums.

Monument Styles

Many cemeteries have specific restrictions on the monuments allowed in their cemeteries. Please understand the guidelines before purchasing your monument.

Monuments can be created in a wide range of styles, colors and materials.

  • Flat or Flush Style Monuments - As you can probably tell, this style of monument rests very low, or flush to the ground. There are some cemeteries that require this type of monument to be used for both a uniform appearance as well as ease of mowing.
  • Bevel Monuments - Much like the flat style monuments, beveled monuments rest low to the ground, but are slanted or beveled slightly for ease of finding and reading.
  • Upright Monuments - This style of monument utilizes a large front face (or tablet), and are a good choice for long, engraved inscriptions or flourishes. The large tablet size also makes it easier to locate in a cemetery.
  • Slanted Monuments - Slanted monuments are a form of upright monuments that slant upward for ease of reading. These also feature a large tablet for inscriptions.
  • Cremation Monuments - This type of monument includes a small space (or niche) to permanently house the ashes of the departed. These niches are above ground and sealed from the elements.
  • Bench Monument - Often used as a memorial, as well as a grave marker, bench monuments are often seen as a comforting place to sit peacefully and reflect on memories shared.
