Buying a monument is not something you do on a regular basis and for many people this would be your first time monument buying experience. As monuments can greatly vary in price it is a good starting point to understand the difference between the types of monuments.
You also need to consider the selected plot and if any cemetry restrictions apply.
A Headstone consists of at least of two pieces of stone. Coming in a wide range of shapes and colour, these are one of the most classic grave markers.
Headstones can be personally inscripted either directly on the stone by sandblasting or by adding a bronze / granite plaque to the stone. All languages and designs (decorative pictures) can be created, accessories such as crosses added or even have a ceramic photo attached. The options available are only bound by your imagination.
