Flush Grave Markers
The most uncomplicated type of flat maker for a headstone is a flush grave marker. Characterized by their simple design and placement at the head of a grave, this is a design that’s accepted in most cemeteries and churchyards as a commemorative piece. When selected, these markers are typically laser etched with the name, date of birth and date of death. Most commonly our clients select these markers to be done in black granite or as a bronze marker, finished with laser etching. Flush lawn ledgers are another type of flush grave marker that is sometimes used in conjunction with other types of headstones for longer text.
Bevel markers are a type of flat marker that’s sometimes also referred to as a pillow marker. These tombstones have a sloped design and a wedge like shape that gives them better visibility from afar. They are slightly larger than flush grave markers, which creates more options for a custom design. . Bevel markers can be made for both single graves as well as including a companion memorial for those that wish to have a combination resting location.
A ledger headstone is type of flat marker that is characterized by its highly customizable design. Typically used in combination with a slant or bevel headstone, these flush markers lie in front of a headstone covering the whole grave. They can be used to represent double depth plots as well as used as a family marker. Because of their length, our artists customize these grave makers with lengthy epitaphs and custom images that pay tribute to the departed. Our design team helps our client find the words that properly immortalize the person as well as artwork that enhances the design and beauty of the memorial.
