Burial practices vary. We tend to think that when someone dies, they are buried in an individual plot with a headstone. But many couples choose to be buried side by side with a single headstone marking the two graves inscribed with both names. These shared gravestones are often called companion headstones or double headstones.
Although these names imply the headstones are made for two, some families use them to mark a family plot. In this case, you might have as many as six or more people buried next to one another. Each is marked with a grass-level gravestone, and the group shares an upright companion headstone engraved with the family name and sometimes the names of each individual.
Legacy Headstones offers a beautiful selection of double headstones to suit any memorial need or budget. Our selection includes several sizes, materials, and styles to choose from. In addition to our upright companion headstones, we craft our grass-level markers, pillow gravestones, and slanted headstones in the companion style. Our experience crafting high-quality monuments spans over a century, and our commitment to customer satisfaction never ceases. Explore our selection of companion headstones today to find the perfect memorial for yourself or your loved one.
Our upright companion headstones are available in different orientation styles for left, right, or corner installation. Our current selection of double headstones includes black, gray, pink, and red granite. Using our online design tool, you can customize your chosen grave marker to add an image, epitaph, or other details you would like to include at the final resting place.
Consider our special shape headstones. In place of a traditional gravestone, you might like one that is heart-shaped, a teardrop, a butterfly, or an angel. Or perhaps a bench memorial speaks to you. You are welcome to customize any of these special shape memorials as companion headstones.
