Head Stones


Headstones are an important part of any family's grieving process, and are among the most popular and effective memorials in use today. Headstones serve to help families cope with their losses. By establishing permanent memorials, when loved ones die; families can practice the sound advice that psychologists typically give to those going through the grieving process. But, besides their emotional value, headstones are also important for historians. Headstones assure that lives can be documented decades, or even centuries, after death.

The design of permanent memorials has changed substantially over the years. For many years, permanent headstones were usually marked by headstones that were large, up-right pieces of sculpted stone and contained written information about the people whose graves they marked. While these types of memorials are still are used today, they now usually mark groups of graves (such as an entire family). Meanwhile, headstones for individuals typically consist of smaller, plaque-like headstones. In most memorials today, these individual headstones are made of bronze, granite, or a combination of the two and they are displayed directly on the ground at the head of a grave. These headstones typically preserve the memory of one individual or a couple, and they work in tandem with the larger, up-right headstones to create beautiful memorials for entire families. .
