Memorials - Styles/Colors

At Tri-County Memorials, we firmly believe that a monument should be a unique reflection of the person who it stands for. And that’s why we offer an extensive variety of colors, designs, and styles. From flush markers to mausoleums, Gem Mist to Dakota Mahogany, we’ll work with you to select the components that will best commemorate your loved one.

Memorial Designs

Shaped Carvings
The outline of the design is carved, while the inside is made to present a shape — often a flower or a plant.

Flat Carvings
We can carve a name or design into the face of the monument, and can remove the granite polish for an "axed" surface.

Sculpture/Statue Carvings
Using a recessed area to create contrast, we can sculpt an image to present a 3-dimensional design.

Etching
Provide us with a memorable image that you like, and we’ll etch it into the granite of your memorial — ensuring it lasts forever.

Lettering Options
We have an array of lettering for granite, bronze, and marble gravestones. Show us what you want, and we’ll work to match it.

Styles

Mausoleums
Serving as buildings where people are entombed, mausoleums can either come with or without stained-glass windows and doors.

Slant Markers
Typically 16 or so inches above the ground with the back of the stone straight vertical, slant grave markers generally possess a front that slopes at around a 45 degree angle.

Bevel Marker
These angled markers possess a slight pitch. The front stands at ground level, while the back is a few inches off the ground.

Bronze Marker
Equally capable of being a standalone monument or attached to an adjacent memorial, bronze markers are a nice way to commemorate a loved one.

Traditional Upright
A longtime staple seen throughout cemeteries nationwide, traditional uprights are a timeless classic that are every bit as functional as they are dignified.

Flush Markers
Able to be customized to cemetery requirements, flush markers are generally 24" x 12" and are a good choice for couples buried in close proximity.

Bench Memorials
Granite benches to commemorate a loved one are an excellent choice for a variety of locations. They can be situated in parks, cemeteries, or even in your backyard.
