A memorial is a physical structure that can serve as a reminder of an event as well as a person. In the event of a death, it also provides a place to lay flowers, pray, or pay your respects in person. Memorials are not limited to cemetery headstones. So, whether you are arranging a religious burial, cremation, or another type of funeral, such as green burials, we can help you make memorial arrangements.
Our approved local stonemason works with a number of quality materials, thus crafting traditional and ornate memorials of all shapes and sizes. Park Funeral Directors can provide a range of options depending on your budget. Moreover, we will personally deliver your exact specifications to our stonemason, who will produce you a top-quality piece.
The most widely recognised form of memorial, headstones come in many different materials including granite, sandstone, and slate as well as marble.
