A Note About Using Our Online Catalog & Monument Designer

When you click the button below, you will be automatically logged in to our Online Catalog.  This is a nice way to search monuments, sort them by monument type or view them by size, etc.  This is separate from our Online Designer.

In order to design your own monument, click the "Click Here To Design Your Own" link in the top left corner of the page.  You'll see the link highlighted in yellow in the image shown here.  All of the monuments shown in our catalogs are not part of our Online Monument Designer.  We are always working to include more, but there is a wide variety of preformatted monuments to which you may add carving and lettering.  You may also choose from many blank monument shapes in traditional and contemporary styles and build your own. 

Be sure to use Internet Explorer or Firefox browser when using the Online Monument Designer.  Google's Chrome browser and Mac's Safari browsers do not support drag-and-drop.  This means components and lettering will disappear from the monument as soon as you release the mouse button.  So, it is highly recommended you use IE or FireFox.  Please feel free to contact us if you need any help.

Grave Ledgers, also called Covers, are ideal for use with Family or Estate monuments where individual graves need to be marked. These offer ample room for inscriptions and dates.


Etchings are typically placed on black stones and may be created by hand with a diamond tipped tool or with the use of a laser. Etchings may be high contrast black and white, or they may be in color.


Benches are an ideal way to remember a loved on in a non-traditional setting such as a courtyard or other public area. Some cemetery lots may be large enough to allow a bench.


Mausoleums or Crypts
These may be large enough to walk into and may provide room for one to twelve spaces depending upon the size.

Columbarium or Cremation Monument
Most all monuments may be fitted with a cored space in the monument or base for storage of cremains. Some monuments, however, are specially designed for cremains. The small cremation bench and the larger columbarium shown below are examples of just two alternatives.
