Creating cemetary memorials has been a tradition in our family since the early 1900’s when my great-grandfather, Lloyd “Steck” Steckman, began his career as a memorialist.

Legacy Headstones – A Tradition of Quality
Creating cemetery memorials has been a tradition in our family since the early 1900’s, when our great-grandfather, Lloyd Steckman, began his career crafting headstones for graves. Llloyd learned his trade in Everett, Pennsylvania at the Everett Marble and Granite Works, and in 1920 he started Steckman’s Memorial Studio in Ellwood City, Pennsylvania. Lloyd dedicated himself to easing the burdens of the bereaved by developing a memorial crafting process that was as quick, affordable, and painless as possible. By using only the best materials, he ensured that Steckman funeral monuments would stay standing for generations. Today, with the development of our online headstones and monuments center, we continue the Steckman tradition. Here, you can design your own funeral monuments and epitaphs with our easy to use Automated Memorial Designer, and you can feel confident that the superior quality and craftsmanship of our affordable gravestones will ensure that your memorial stands the test of time.

Before You Choose a Funeral Monument for Your Loved One
When a loved one passes on, you quite naturally want to erect a funeral monument to mark their final resting place. However, before start looking at monuments and headstones, and definitely before you actually order and pay for one, there is one crucial step you must take. If you do not take this step, you may end up making a very expensive and painful mistake.
Before you order any memorials or monuments from us at Legacy Headstones, you should speak with the people who own or manage the cemetery. You need to find out what, if any, restrictions they have regarding monuments to ensure that you do not end up ordering a memorial that does not meet their regulations, forcing you to buy a second one that does. A few simple questions can save you a lot of extra grief.
Our Memorials and Monuments are Made to Last
When you find yourself in the position of having to choose a memorial to mark the final resting place of a loved one, keep in mind that your choice should last for many generations. If you look in most graveyards, you will find gravestones that date back hundreds of years – in fact, some headstone designs in Europe have lasted almost a thousand.
How is it possible that headstone grave markers can last this long? Quite simply, the longevity of memorials is determined by the materials chosen to craft them. Memorial headstones that last the longest are made from one of two materials: Marble, which is extremely expensive, or granite, like the granite we use at Legacy Headstones.
At Legacy Headstones, we understand the significance of buying an appropriate headstone for your loved one, and that you expect it to last for many years to come. In light of this, we make all of our gravestones from the finest quality granite available. Once you decide on your headstone content, you can use the software on this website to design custom headstones that meet your needs. Granite headstones come in a variety of shapes and colors, and these affordable headstones will stand the test of time, marking the final resting place of your loved one far into the future.
