A Memorial is a Major Investment
Purchasing a memorial is a major investment of time and money and should be undertaken with great thought and care. The average cost of grave monuments varies, but represents an important, permanent decision. The Tegeler Monument Companies (W.S. Tegeler Monument Co – westside and Loeblein Memorials – eastside) recommends careful and relaxed planning when purchasing a memorial.
Whether you are making immediate or pre-need arrangements for a funeral or purchasing cemetery property, you should know that you and your family ARE NOT obligated to purchase a monument from a funeral home or a cemetery. In fact, a good argument can be made to delay the purchase of a memorial. This is the one visual and lasting tribute. It is okay and normal to postpone the purchase of a memorial until other matters are complete.
Tegeler Monument Companies are a reliable source of information regarding the various regulations of the cemeteries in your area. We want to provide you with beautiful headstones and monuments to pay tribute to your loved ones. However, some cemeteries have regulations regarding the size and type of memorial in certain areas of the cemetery. It is wise to consult with one of the Tegeler Monument Companies before you purchase your cemetery property. Visit our Cemetery Regulation page for more information about your cemetery.

Do you offer help to choose a design for my monument?
Visit one of our permanent showrooms to see the different styles of monuments or markers. If you are unable to visit a showroom, then discuss your needs with Tegeler or Loeblein Memorials. We are also available by phone and email to discuss anything you may have questions about. Additionally, we offer at home or in cemetery meetings. Tegeler Monument Companies will help you design a memorial and then complete all that is required to produce the memorial from inscription and design to installation. Other products such as bronze remembrance lamps, bronze vases, floral attachments, religious items and even reproduction photos are available to incorporate into your tribute.
Your wishes and Tegeler – Loeblein Memorials suggestions will combine to help you decide on the appropriate text, floral, epitaphs and meaningful symbols for your memorial. We will prepare drawings and rubbings or have you review a completed stencil to help you visualize the finished memorial as well as to check for any possible errors before the final work is completed on the tombstones and monuments.
If you’re ready to get started or you have questions about our process, then give us a call or fill out our online contact form and one of our team members will get in touch with you shortly!
