Purchasing a memorial is a major investment of time and money and should be undertaken with great thought and care.


Whether you are making immediate or pre-need arrangements for a funeral or purchasing cemetery property, you should know that  you and your family ARE NOT obligated to purchase a monument from a funeral home or a cemetery. In fact, a good argument can be made to delay the purchase of a memorial, the one visual and lasting tribute, until other matters are complete.

Cleveland Monument and Granite is a reliable local source of information regarding the various regulations of the cemeteries in your area. Since cemeteries have regulations regarding the size and type of memorial in certain areas of the cemetery, it is wise to consult with us before you purchase your cemetery property.


Just as in other industries, there exists monument dealers, or "drop-shippers", who feel the need to call the family immediately after their loved one passing in an attempt to "prey" on the full range of emotions going on at the time in order to try to manipulate a quick sale.  Their information is gained through reading obituaries on the newspaper or online.  We at Cleveland Monument and Granite are pleased that through our word of mouth, repeat customers, and referrals, we have been able to create meaningful tributes and memorials for folks that rely on experience, customer satisfaction, and high quality products when making this decision for their loved one.

Visit our display to see the different styles of monuments or markers. If you are unable to visit our display, discuss your needs with Travis and Kari. A cemetery is the best place to start looking for your permanent memorial; take along your camera or smartphone and take pictures and shapes, colors, sizes and designs that you like.  This will be a great starting point for our staff to design you memorial from and then complete all that is required to produce the memorial from inscription to installation.  Other products such as bronze remembrance lamps, bronze vases, floral attachments, religious items and even reproduction photos are available to incorporate into your tribute.
