Flush Marker

These markers are designed to be placed at ground level for easier cemetery maintenance. Typically these markers are 20″ to 24″ long and 10″ to 12″ inches in width for a single person. A double marker can run from 30″ to 48″ in length with variable widths.

Single flush markers
$640 – $950

Double flush markers
$1,010 – $2,000

Bevel Marker

Most people will recognize a bevel marker as it sits above ground and the back is slightly (1″ to 2″) higher than the front. The lengths and widths are similar to the flush markers and are usually 6″ to 8″ high in the back.

Single bevel marker
$750 – $1,000

Double bevel marker
$1,130 – $1,700

Slant Face Marker

A slant face marker is designed to keep within certain budget restrictions, but still can be seen from a greater distance than the other markers. While the length of the slant is the same as the flush and bevel markers the height is usually 16″ in the back and slant” toward the ground.

Single slant marker
$1,060 – $1,800

Double slant marker
$1,590 – $2,300

Upright Memorial

Upright Memorial consists usually of two pieces. The tablet is where the name and design are usually found. The tablet can be any size, shape, color and style and have any type of engraving. The tablet sits on a granite base, which elevates and protects it from damage due to equipment at the cemetery. There are so many variables when considering a Monument it is difficult to give an average price. However, the purpose of these prices is to help you understand what to expect as you consider a memorial. We’ll start with some beginning prices followed by average higher end prices.

Single upright memorials
$1,500 – $4,000

Double upright memorials
$2,600 – $5,000 or more
