Why Are Granite Headstones A Good Choice?
By Rosemary Catzola

The loss of a loved one leaves a void that no one can fill. The grieving process is painful and families struggle to cope with the loss of a loved one. Long after the person has departed, the only things that remain are the memories that one will have to live with. The mortal remains will have a designated place in the cemetery and this is where the headstone will be placed and it will carry the relevant information of the loved one.

Headstones have changed over the years and they are not what they used to be centuries ago. Headstones are a very vital part of history. They help us identify the life and times of the person who is buried there. These serve as documented proof for historians.

Today, the memorial headstones have changed with the times. These days bodies are cremated due to lack of burial space and also because it is a more environment friendly option. Even when the body is cremated the departed ones are given a memorial, and headstones are installed in the cemetery.

Care should be taken while choosing the headstones. If they are meant to last for ages, then granite headstones are the best option. These granite headstones are sturdy, long lasting, and require minimum maintenance. These days even the permanent headstones have changed. A simple Upright-like headstone is used to mark the grave of an individual. These are either made of Stone or granite. Sometimes it may be a combination of the two. This is normally placed at the head of the grave and directly above the ground. These help in preserving the memories of the individual.

Stone headstones are a good option for permanent memorials. These include Stone plates with some special lettering as well as designs and the important details such as the name, date of birth as well as death etc. These Stone plates are then fixed to the granite slabs and installed in the cemetery as a beautiful memorial.

Earlier permanent memorials had huge upright pieces of stone that was sculpted, where there was written information regarding the individual's grave that was marked. These types of memorials do exist even today, however, now these are used to mark a group of graves, such as the grave of the whole family. The upright, huge headstones and the smaller ones, all of them make a complete memorial of the family as a whole.

There are 'pre-need' memorials that are arranged by many people before they die. These headstones come with the inscription of the name of the individual at the time of purchase. If there are two names such as the individual as well as a companion, then both names are inscribed and then the date of deaths are added later on.
