A monument is a marker placed atop or near a Grave to identify who is Buried there.

Monuments are typically made of durable materials such as granite, marble, or bronze and may include inscriptions, engravings, or other decorative elements.

They often include the deceased's name, birth and death dates, and sometimes a short message or Epitaph.

Monuments can be purchased at a Funeral Home, or a company that specializes in creating and selling monuments, or a local stone mason.

When choosing a monument, it's important to check with the cemetery to see if there are any regulations or restrictions on the size, style, or materials of the monument.

Also known as a Headstone, Gravestone, Tombstone or Marker.
