Single upright headstones are monuments and designs dedicated to commemorating the memory of a single person. In this section of our site, we offer a variety of standard and unique cemetery monuments and headstone styles from which you may choose to customize and dedicate to the memory of a dearly departed.
Our exquisite, premium quality materials include black, grey, red, and ruby red granite with stunning details and gorgeous finishes for a truly moving memorial. Whether you are here because of a recent loss or seeking a replacement or your own, know that we care deeply about making the entire process as straightforward as possible.
When you choose one of our single upright headstones, you can begin customizing your lovely memorial by clicking on your choice. Once you do so, our in-browser, easy-to-use interface loads for you to completely customize the text and details of the monument. With over a century of experience in creating headstones and offering comfort and ease to families, we fully believe your thoughts should be focused on celebrating your lost one's life and being surrounded by friends and family, not the details of their grave marker. That is why we ensure it is as easy as possible when selecting and designing the memorial with our customizing tool.
For those seeking the ideal gravestone to laser-etch a beloved photo of your loved one or perhaps an image of great importance to them and you, we gently recommend using black granite for the best possible outcome and detailing.

Where should headstones be placed?
When your headstone arrives, it must be properly installed within the cemetery. Most cemeteries commonly place a headstone on a concrete base and have installers they can recommend professionally. We also provide an installation instruction manual with every monument that provides specific dimensions for the concrete form to support the memorial.
Should I get two single upright headstones or a companion headstone?
Single gravestones are an excellent choice for a single plot. Companion monuments are larger and meant for side-by-side graves. Generally, choosing companion monuments for couples or siblings is ideal.
What are the most common upright single headstone designs?
The most common upright single headstone design is called a Die, or Tablet, with a Serptop (gently upward sloping) shape and polished on all sides.
