While the process of purchasing a monument for a loved one is not as difficult as planning a funeral, it is by no means easy. To begin with, monuments are usually purchased anywhere between 1-12 months after a death has occurred. At this time, most families are still grieving. Aside from that, most don’t even know what a monument is. In common terms, a monument is a headstone, footstone, ledger, bench, marker, or anything else that can be placed over a grave to memorialize the existence of the deceased. Monuments are typically constructed of granite or bronze, as these materials are strong and are meant to last “forever.
