Granite Cemetery Monuments

Granite is a crystallized rock that is mainly composed of quartz, mica, feldspar and other natural materials. Granite is a popular choice for headstones, monuments and cemetery markers.

Found in various rock formations worldwide, granite memorials are most preferred for the following reasons:

  • A cost effective monument choice
  • Ability to withstand significant weight
