To avoid confusion, you should know that "memorials" is
the general term for all various types of stones and plaques used to mark a
gravesite. There are four styles of memorials.
- - Grass markers are flush with the ground and
are usually 20" to 48".
- - Bevel markers are similar to grass markers
but the top is slanted from back to front and it protrudes slightly above
- - Slant markers are larger in height than a
bevel marker and have an angled face. They may be set on a granite base or
directly on a concrete foundation.
- - Upright monuments have two parts- the
upright top part is called a tablet or die and the bottom piece is the base.
