Monuments can be made of different materials

There are monuments made from different types of materials, so you can choose the one that meets your preference the most. Some of the most popular materials monuments are made from include marble, granite, and bronze. In some cases, the cemetery will have its own regulations that need to be met when it comes to the materials the monuments are made from. So, you want to make sure you are aware of any such regulations before you decide on the material for the monument. 

Monuments vary greatly when it comes to their cost

Price is often one of the most important considerations when it comes to deciding on the monument you purchase. Some things that go into determining the price of a monument are the material, the size, the design, the color, and other features. You should go for the monument that's as close to what you want as possible, without going over the budget that you are working with. 

Monument styles can vary greatly

Not only can a monument's style vary greatly simply because of things like the material, the color, and the shape, but it can also vary because the monument can accommodate one person up to an entire family. A single monument is one that's for a single person. There are also double monuments, and these accommodate two people, whether they are a couple, siblings, or anyone else who wants to share a monument. Then, there are family monuments, and they can be designed in so many ways. The surname can be huge and surrounded by the names and dates of the family members. Or, there can be a family quote in the center, with each person's full name and dates surrounding it. There are a lot of other ways to style a monument, so you can be very creative.
