Headstone vs. Grave Marker

The words “headstone” and “grave marker” are sometimes used interchangeably by families who are looking to honor the life of their loved one following a death in the family. Typically, the term “headstone” refers to any type of monument that is placed at the head of the grave in order to honor the memory of the deceased. “Grave Marker”, on the other hand, is typically a smaller, one-piece gravestone that is placed in a cemetery. Regardless of which term you use, there is no right or wrong answer.

Memorial Headstone Benches

Memorial benches are unique headstones, as they take the shape of a bench as opposed to the traditional upright stone on a base. If you have done any type of search for headstones for sale online, then you most certainly have seen various types of memorial benches.

There are 2 popular types of memorial benches that are used in place of traditional tombstones. The flat bench memorial is one that is simple yet elegant in nature. It consists of a flat seat with 2 separate legs attached for stability. The other type of memorial bench is the park bench. This is a larger bench with a backrest, where most of the inscription will be engraved.

Headstone Granite Color Options

There are many different colors of granite that are quarried from all over the world. Most granites are imported into the United States. However, there are some quarries in the USA where headstones are quarried, Barre, Vermont, and Elberton, Georgia being two of the most popular quarries for their grey granite.

However, if you are looking for a unique color that differs from traditional grey, you may look at rose, black, or blue, as these colors are also popular and offer a different look than traditional grey.

Regardless of the color you choose for your loved one’s headstone, granite is the material you will want to use in order to ensure that your stone stands the test of time and can stand up to outside conditions once it is set at the cemetery.
