Tombstones is a central memorial tradition to honor the one who passed away.

Nowadays tombstones often be designed elaborately. The beautiful structure and elegant design of most tombstones today makes a stroll through one of today’s cemeteries reminiscent of a walk through a lovely park.

Tombstones’ style changed much in these year.

Tombstones of yesteryear were usually large, upright pieces of sculpted stone that had written information about the people whose graves they marked. But most of today’s tombstones are smaller, simpler, plaque-like pieces made of bronze, granite, or a combination of the two, and they are displayed directly on the ground at the head of graves. The up-right tombstones are less common today than they once were because time has shown that they have a tendency to deteriorate and fall over as years pass. Tombstones that are installed at ground level are designed to weather the elements much longer.

Today’s tombstones usually come in two varieties: bronze and granite. Bronze tombstones typically include bronze plates with special memorial designs and lettering that name the deceased as well as the dates of birth and death. These plates are then attached to granite bases and then installed in cemeteries as beautiful tombstones. Granite tombstones, meanwhile, are formed from one of the world’s oldest and strongest natural materials, which has been shaped, polished and chiseled into a tombstone that will certainly last for ages.

Things You Should Consider to Choose a Tombstones:

  • Material (granite, bronze, or other types)
  • Size, color and Style (upright, flush to the ground)
  • Headstone designs
  • Inscription (offensive language is a no-no)
  • Quality
  • Maintenance fee (or are you responsible?)

Special Tombstone Symbols and Their Meaning:

Probably, the best place to see the language of symbols is in your local cemetery. Different symbols and emblems used on tombstones and headstones have different meanings and understandings. The following is a small sampling of some common tombstone symbols. Like any type of art, some images fall out of fashion, and some icons are favored in one area and unseen in another. For example, one image common in cemeteries in the Midwest is that of shaking hands. This image is not common in Colorado cemeteries.
