Types of MonumentsMonuments, like every other type of grave marker, can be customized for the individual person who’s working on after death preparations or for a deceased family member or friend. There are three main types of monuments, though, that are the most common and can be further customized to fit individual personalities and preferences.

UprightUpright monuments, as implied by the name, are structures that rise vertically from the ground. They usually resemble large, rectangular headstones that are wider than they are tall, although proportions can vary. The entire stone marker can also be made into a significant shape, such as a cross. Size is dependent on personal preference, as is the information and images that are engraved on the stone. Many choose to have names and dates placed on the stone, as well as religious symbols or favorite quotations.
