Reasons to Choose an Upright Granite Headstone

The headstone that you design for your loved one can be a representation of your family’s culture and history or the life and interests of the one who has passed. The many upright headstone designs and larger design space are reasons families choose this option. Other reasons to consider this style include:

Visibility: Upright granite headstones are taller and more prominent than lower slant monuments, so they’re easier to find and more readable from a distance.

Granite options: Granite comes in a variety of colors, shapes, and finishes and is a durable, long-lasting material that will maintain its appearance over time.

Cremation features: Some upright headstone designs include a compartment for cremated remains.

Cemetery regulations: Some cemeteries require upright headstones. Check with your cemetery before choosing a headstone, or ask a memorial counselor for assistance.
