Monuments and Markers for Latrobe, PA

We are proud to offer monuments in both bronze and granite. Please contact us for information on our complete selection.

Family or Estate Monuments

These monuments typically display a family name and have multiple ledgers, bevel markers, slant markers or flat markers to represent individual members of the family.

Companion Monuments

These monuments typically have inscription panels on the face of the monument for individuals.

Individual Monuments

These monuments are typically smaller and are ideal for individuals. It is possible to place inscriptions on one of these monuments for two individuals if space is available.

Half Serpentine Monuments

These monuments may be created for Family or Estate monuments, individual monuments or companion monuments depending on the arrangement of the inscriptions and the placement of markers or ledgers for individuals.

Wing-Style Monuments

These are popular companion style monuments and present a nice opportunity for a flower vase.

Slant Markers

Slants get their name due to the slanted face. This face makes the monument easier to read as a visitor approaches the grave from a distance. These are available in single and double sizes.

Bevel Markers

Bevels get their name from the beveled or slanted face of the marker. This makes the monument easy to read when standing at the foot of the grave site.

Flat Markers

These are also called Grass Markers or Flush Markers because they are flat or flush against the grass at the grave site.

Ledgers

Graver ledgers, also called Covers, are ideal for use with Family or Estate monuments and leave ample room for the placement of graces, inscriptions and dates.

Etchings

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

Benches

Benches are an ideal way to remember a loved one 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 12 spaces depending upon to 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 here are examples of just two alternatives.

Stone Finishes

There are many techniques for finishing the surface of a granite memorial.  This is often determined by the type and color of granite as well as the memorial design.

Polished Finish

Abrasives are rubbed on the surface of the stone with high-speed polishing wheels to create a polished surface

Sawed, Steeled, Frosted

This matte finish is created by sawing the surface.  It may also be accomplished by sandblasting the surface with steel shot, or by frosting it with sandblast sand.

Polished Margin

The surface is polished and a panel area is frosted, making a place for lettering.

This is a hewn surface with hewn sides.  This also referred to as Rock Pitch when seen on the sides of a monument.
