Slant Memorial is like a wedge on the ground. They usually stand typically 16 or so inches above the ground with the vertical back and the polished face sloping at about a 45 degree angle. The slant memorials are always supported by a foundation. And a headstone base can raise the slant marker off the ground as to not hide the lettering from the planting or desirable of a different look.
Slant shape is very popular and is a good compromise between the pillow marker and the tablet & base. The back can be engraved with the family name, poems, photos or other sentiments. Bronze plaques can be attached to the front or back. The inclined inscription surface of slant headstone not only contributes to the prominence of the inscription, but also, unlike the flat or flush marker it sheds the rainfall and nature, which keeps it clean.
Slant type memorial in singularly appropriate in association with a family memorial or as a single or double grave marker.

Pillow Top Headstones
Cemetery headstones come in many sizes and shapes. But stone shapes is limited by your local cemetery rules. Your cemetery will have guidelines telling you what style of monument may be placed on the grave.
Most cemeteries allow, and even require, flat-with-the-ground markers and pillow top style monuments and headstones. These markers are a nice way to modestly elevate the memorial from the ground.
Pillow style Headstones are a low profile grave marker where the higher back slopes to the lower front. In most cases, the slope is either 8" in the back to 5" in the front or 6" in the back to 4" in the front. On a pillow style monument different areas can be polished, for example:
- top only (Polish 1)
- top, back and front (Polish 3)
- top, back, front and sides (Polish 5)
The areas that are polished on the stone dictate where the lettering or design can be placed.
Pillow top headstones are available in various sizes. The size is best determined when it is known whether one of more persons will be memorialized on the monument. In addition, pillow top grave markers can be installed with or without a granite base.
