Granite headstones are the most popular form of cemetery memorials, a favorite of families and individuals seeking to memorialize their deceased. Practically all cemeteries in the US contain countless forms of granite memorials. Natural stone is selected for its beauty and elegance, and is one of the oldest forms of memorialization. Granite is the best possible choice due to its durability and hardness. Granite headstones, in particular, not only have the ability to withstand temperature extremes, modern hydrocarbon, and acid rain pollution, they also stay sturdy in the ground with little potential for getting displaced. There is next to no salvage value, ensuring granite memorials will rarely be stolen for profit.

These markers will be placed on a grave to identify the person who is buried there, but also will portray a very personal meaning to family members and even descendants who may be looking for graves to do genealogies! In hundreds of years, few types of stones can accurately keep definite carved dates and names from disappearing despite rain, wind, and snow. Granite also comes in a variety of colors and textures. Whether rough hewn or polished, this is a stone that is adaptable to taste.

In addition to material value and durability, it is important to consider design, and at American Headstones Company we work with relatives and intimate relations of the deceased to ensure that the departed are portrayed in a suitable way. In fact, the arrangement of epitaphs and photographs upon headstone surfaces is probably the most time intensive and emotional part of headstone arrangement. Using photographs on tombstones can enhance the sentimental effect of the headstone. Those wishing to memorialize their loved one can easily have this done through our company’s service. Our granite headstones and flat markers are beautifully accented with porcelain photographs.
