In preparation for a family loss, or even for your own future, there are many decisions that will need to be made. This section of the website is designed to help guide you through some of the decisions needed.
If you are purchasing a pre-need memorial you may want to check on cemetery restrictions and all charges associated with your burial plots. There maybe perpetual care and installation charges you are required to pay for burial plots as well as your monument depending whether you purchase your plots from a from a City Cemetery, Privately owned Cemetery or a Country Cemetery. Some of the cemeteries may have restrictions in regards to what style and size of monument you are allowed to have. If you do want a a certain monument style you may want to check on the cemetery restrictions before the purchase of the plot. Grassland Memorials’ knowledgeable memorial consultants would be happy to assist you in understanding any cemetery restrictions and or regulations.
When purchasing a memorial for a spouse you usually have the option of either a double monument for both you and your spouse or you could purchase a single monument, which would accomodate only his or her name. You may have the option of an upright style monument or a pillow style monument.
Color is another choice you will have; there are many beautiful colors to pick from. In our showroom we have several varieties on display.
Shape: you may choose a traditional style or something a little different. We specialize in custom designing your monument to suit you as an individual and do not mass-produce designs.
Inscriptions and artwork are a big decision to make. If you can give our consultants your ideas, we can turn them into a perfect memorial for your family by use of our modern monumental design program. We are able to provide you with several proofs that you and your family may view before you make your final decision. This will give you peace of mind knowing you have made your own decision in a comfortable atmosphere.
You can purchase something traditional in shape or something more unique in shape. Cemetery memorials range from simple flat, beveled or slant markers that lie on the ground, to elaborate multi piece upright monuments. Some memorials may include crosses, statues, pictures, vases and remembrance lamps.
Most memorials are made from granite. This stone is durable, reasonably priced, and available in a wide range of colors. Granite comes in different qualities, some which may not be suitable for cemetary memorials. A reputable memorial builder will be able to show you fine quality granites that will accept different styles of lettering and design work. Be sure to look at quality, finish, guarantee, design as well as size, if you are comparing prices.
