Cemetery Lettering

Everyone wants to preserve the memory and life of their loved ones after they have passed. This is one of the primary ways in which we show respect and reverence for the departed. When a family member or a loved one passes, it is our custom to mark the interment with a gravestone or a memorial. Often times a married couple will share the same headstone listing important vital information for future generations, such as full name, date of birth, and date of passing. As is customary with shared headstones it is often necessary to add information to the stone afterward, usually to include vital information of the passed partner, when their time has come. With this in mind, cemetery lettering is a part of the services that we provide either at our location or, when necessary, in the field when it is needed.

Cemetery lettering is important. Many family members and genealogists rely on the information to learn the vital information about the person that is passed. Our services include inscription on any monument before being needed. We can customize what information that is wanted on the monument or memorial. Our lettering is engraved by skilled and trained professionals. We are willing and able to work out of our shop, or visit an installed headstone to add information.

We also provide monument cleaning services and repair work to cemetery lettering. Unfortunately, as headstones are subject to the changing weather conditions, erosion and decomposition of the monument is not uncommon. We are able to visit installed headstones and repair broken lettering, clean information, repair monuments, and when necessary provide information on cost to fully repair, replace, or completely upgrade a memorial or monument.
