Chesapeake Monuments create a beautiful and efficient way of memorializing multiple loved ones. These memorials are centered over multiple graves, and symbolize a family presence in the area. Headstones can include lettering and emblems to match footstones or benches, and can be color matched as well. Before purchasing, Chesapeake Monuments will confirm whether your cemetery allows upright monuments, and if so, which styles, colors, sizes, and placements of monuments are acceptable. Below are just a few samples to give you an idea of the possibilities. For other styles and sizes, please feel free to contact us, and one of our representatives will help to design the perfect double or family cemetery memorial.
We serve the Baltimore community, cemeteries, business ventures and non-profit organizations providing headstones, grave markers and monuments of all kinds. We can provide for all memorialization needs of loved ones including custom engraved grave markers, beautiful monuments, one-of-a-kind headstones with photos, and customer designed memorials; and we can ship throughout the United States when required.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our grave markers and monuments, and attention to customer requested details.
Getting Ready to Purchase Your Memorial purchasing a memorial is not something that we do every day and most of us do not know where to begin the processes. The term “memorial” refers to the stone that is erected for your loved one and the cemetery controls what you are able to install…a marker, upright monument, bronze etc. Your choice is in color, design, wording of inscription.
The following information should prove helpful to you:
Contact the cemetery (Family Services Counselor if you have one) and ask them this question: “what is the minimum and maximum size memorial I can have on the grave”.
You should be aware of what is around the gravesite and if you see bronze, an additional question should be asked if they don’t offer the information: “is bronze
required and if so, must it be on a granite base?” Please ask for the information in writing to prevent an issue in the future.
So that there are no surprises for you, ask them as well the cost of marker installation or upright foundation whichever applies to your grave. These costs are generally referred to as cemetery fees.
Once you know what you can have on your grave site, you should begin a discussion with other family members involved to determine what you would like to have on the grave as a stone. You should also discuss what you would like to have as an inscription.
When you know the type of memorial you are able to put on the grave, marker or upright monument, come into the office and we will take you through the rest of the steps which will include selecting a stone color, the design, inscription, and will you want a photo or a flower vase. Please bring with you the document your Family Services Counselor gives you indicating what you are able to erect on the grave.
