Arlington National Cemetery

While Arlington National Cemetery provides military headstones at no cost to families, some choose to have their loved ones interred in the private memorials section. Arlington National Cemetery rules allow for upright granite headstones to be installed in these private sections. Fram Monument has installed many private memorials at Arlington National Cemetery, and we are very familiar with the specifics of production and installation to fit the government’s rules. Every private monument is custom-made to fit the regulations of the cemetery, so please contact one of our representatives, who will assist you in engraving an existing memorial at the nation’s most revered cemetery.
Fram Monument has not only installed new private monuments at Arlington National Cemetery, but we have added additional engraving to many existing monuments which have already been installed at the cemetery. Our process is simple: We first survey the existing monument and lettering, in order to be able to match the new engraving to the original. Then we send you a mock up for review, followed by obtaining authorization from the cemetery directly to proceed with the work. Once the approval is received, we engrave the existing monument on site, without removal of the original. For our out-of-town customers, we can send a completion photo once the engraving has been completed.
