Custom Designed Double Monuments in Westchester

Double monuments or companion monuments are those made in honor of two or more people. They create a beautiful way to memorialize loved ones. One headstone marks two or more burial plots adjacent to each other. These memorials may be for a couple, siblings or combination of people. Polchinski Memorials, Inc. in Westchester NY, can custom design and help you create a beautiful memorial to honor your loved ones.

Stone Material

We can help you choose the type of stone to use which includes granite, marble and others. Many monuments are made from granite because of its durability, density, climate tolerance, its affordable price and availability in a wide range of colors.

Monument Styles

Monuments may be created in the following styles depending on the rules and regulations of the cemetery:

Flush monument:
The monument is set flat and rests at the head of the gravesite.

Bevel monument:
Monuments that are slightly high above the ground, no taller than 12 inches and have a 2-inch slope.

Slant style monument:
A slant monument has a smooth back and slanted face which can be carved and lettered. They may be 16 or so inches high and stand above the ground with the front sloping at about a 45-degree angle.

Upright monument:
This consists of a top piece called a die and a bottom piece called a base. It provides a family with the maximum surface area to create a personalized tribute.
