Monument Designs

Every memorial monument you see on our website was designed and created by the Evans Monument family. We offer a very large variety of both granite and marble from quarries located throughout the world. We have available Vermont granite, Southern granite, a variety of colors quarried in this country as well as an array of imported material, including the popular black granite from Africa, South America, India and Asia. Every headstone we design is sold with a full replacement warranty.

If a monument is shipped outside the local area, we always pay the freight and arrange installation. Prior to finalizing arrangements, we personally contact the cemetery to insure that the stone meets all rules and restrictions. As part of our service, we handle each and every detail from the time the monument is ordered until it is installed in the cemetery.

We believe a monument should be an everlasting tribute to a loved one’s life. It should reflect something of a person’s beliefs, values and personality. We take great pride in creating beautiful monuments that tell stories in stone.

Traditional Monuments

Traditional Monuments are usually two-piece headstones, with space available for one to four family names, depending on the size of the stone. We can create any size that is required by your cemetery, and have a selection of standard monument sizes as well. We also can custom design the artwork and design of the name, dates, and personalization of your monument. Some shape options for the top are a flat top design, a serpentine top, apex top, or can be a custom shape such as a heart design or unique shape.

Custom Monuments

An estate or vertical monument is usually a larger, more elegant design that can mark an individual or family plot. Some examples we have created in the past include two column monument designs, wing monuments, heart shaped and obelisk monuments. We can custom design a shape for your family, and also offer bronze and ceramic artwork to adorn the monument.

Slant Markers

Slant grave markers and headstones include a serpentine or flat top design, and marks one to four family members grave sites. The front face design slopes from back to front, with a rough or polished top. They can include cut-outs for vases and other monument accessories.


While many companies simply offer standard bench designs, a two-piece bench or one that includes legs and a seat. We have been able to offer something more unique using our experience and personalization. As can be seen in the designs we created above, the granite memorial benches are elegant, unique, and truly tell the family’s story in stone. We also offer traditional designs for people who prefer a more traditional bench monument design.

Mausoleums & Civic Memorials

A walk-in cemetery Mausoleum can be created from a variety of both granite and marble from quarries located throughout the world, and can become a lasting memorial for you or your family. A distinguished choice that speaks to a lifetime of achievements, a mausoleum can be beautifully designed and crafted to serve as a permanent testimonial.

An above ground vault (or crypt as they are sometimes called), can be adorned beautifully to speak to the person or persons.

Honoring those who have bravely served our nation, whether it be overseas or in our home towns, can be dutifully done in a variety of ways. Our designers can artistically combine granite, marble or bronze in a manner that truly honors those who are serving or have passed. We custom create civic monuments and statues to not only pay tribute, but to aesthetically blend into any environment. We can work with your municipalities to ensure a timely installation.

Bronze Grave Markers

Bronze grave markers or headstones traditionally sit atop granite pieces, and can include bronze vases and emblems to tell your family’s story. They are available in single sizes and mark up to four family members. We can also create bronze markers to be included at the foot of a plot, if allowed by the cemetery.

V.A. Markers
We are proud to help any Veteran or family member order their V.A. Marker, as well as assist family members to create a bronze marker that matches their companions.
