Differences in Grave Marker Materials
By Stella Rossa

When you come to deciding on a grave marker, you should bear in mind that it will become a permanent fixture. It will probably be there forever, and can be seen by anyone visiting the area where the person is buried. This is why it is vital that you choose the right marker. Headstones can be expensive and are actually the most expensive element of a funeral.

When it comes to choosing the material, you should bear in mind what design you want, as this could limit your choices. You also need to consider cost and the fact that you need a headstone that is durable and will stand the test of time.

Some cemeteries will sell grave markers on the premises, however this may limit your choices. It is important that you get this tribute to your loved one right, so you should always shop around.

When you shop for a graver marker there are several factors that you should consider:

Did your loved one give you any specific instructions for how they want their grave?
Does the grave yard you are using have any limits? Some graveyards and churches will only let you have materials that match their current styles so this could limit your choice somewhat if this is the case?
What are your cost limits?
What exactly do you want the marker to look like?

Although headstones come in a variety of styles, the most popular are heavy marble or heavy granite. These are easily shaped which means you can have them with the look that you like and it is simple to get them carved with your chosen words.

These stones are also highly durable which means that no matter what the weather conditions, they will stand the test of time and last forever. Something which should definitely be considered when it comes to choosing a grave marker.

If you do not want a stone marker, then you could opt for a metal such as Stone. It is also possible to get ones made out of sandstone, however this is a generally weak material and therefore not usually recommended.

Whatever you choose for your loved ones grave marker, you should take all of these factors into account. You will want a place that you can come to remember them, and you want something that will last forever without too much maintenance. Speak to the people you are buying from, because they will be able to offer you much advice and help you make the best decision.
