Cremation monuments are designed to hold the cremains. You many choose from many sizes, styles and colours. The following will provide a summary of the different styles and few photos to give you a better idea of those styles.
- These are similar to the Markers used as Granite Monuments. The difference is that one or two core holes are bored in the Marker and a repository (container) for cremains inserted. The repository is buried in the ground beneath the Marker so that the top of the repository is level with the top of the Marker.
- Again, these are similar to the Uprights used as Granite Monuments. The difference is that the monument is designed to hold cremains in one of two ways. In the first way, one or two core holes are bored in the base of the Upright and a repository for cremains inserted. In the second way a Pillar with a core hole is added to the design and the cremains are sealed into the repository in the Pillar.
- Pillars and Boulders
- These are Pillars or Boulders which have one or two core holes bored into the monument itself. A repository for the cremains is inserted into the core holes and sealed after the cremains are deposited. Pillars are 12 inches square and are 24 inches in height for a single repository and 48 inches in height for a double repository. Boulders are more natural in shape and vary in size A boulder may have one or two core holes for repositories.
- Granite Benches make a unique monument for one or two people. The front face of the seat and the legs are engraved with the name or names and dates and any desired decoration. One or two core holes are bored in the legs of the bench to hold cremains.
