We hope this guide will be helpful in determining which type of custom-designed monument you are interested in.
Madison Georgia’s Leading Monument Company
These monuments typically have inscription panels for each person laid to rest there. Upright headstones are perfect for couples to spend eternity side by side.
Mausoleums or Crypts
This type of family estate monument can be large enough to walk into and can be designed to provide room for up to twelve resting spaces depending upon the size you choose.
These single monuments are typically smaller and are ideal for individual resting places.
Headstone etchings are typically placed on black granite and can be hand-etched with a diamond-tipped tool or with the use of a laser. Etching designs may be high contrast black and white, or in color.
These cemetery monuments are popular companion style memorial stones and present a nice opportunity for a flower vase to beautify the area. The wings can be designed to be separate pieces connected by a plinth, or designed in a one-piece unit.
Grave Ledgers, also called Covers, are ideal for use with Family or Estate monuments where individual graves need to be marked. As they are designed to cover the top of the grave, these cemetery memorials offer ample room for inscriptions and dates. Beautify the plot with coping and chips for a finished look.
Columbarium or Cremation Monuments
Most Columbarium or Cremation monuments may be fitted with a cored space in the monument or base for the storage of cremains. Some monuments, however, are specially designed for cremains.
Half Serpentine Monuments
These headstones for graves may be used for Family or Estate monuments, Individual Monuments, or Companion monuments depending on the arrangement of the inscriptions and placement of markers or ledgers for individuals. It is also a nice way to feature a vase for flowers.
