Sizes and Shapes: At Thomas Carrigg & Sons there are many different sizes and shapes to choose from. We put this video together to help you understand the different options. Watch the video and let Thomas Carrigg explain and help you to understand the different types of sizes and shapes that are available.
Flush Marker - These lay flush with the ground. They are generally twenty-four inches by twelve inches, but can be larger or smaller depending upon cemetery requirements.
Bevel Maker - These are generally six, eight, ten, or twelve inches above the ground, with the back of the stone being slightly higher than the front.
Slant Marker - These stand typically eighteen inches above the ground, with the back of the stone straight vertical, and the front sloping at about a 45 degree angle.
Upright - These are typically a two piece memorial consisting of an upright tablet and a base. They can be any shape and have any carving inscribed on them. Uprights can be single size, double size, or four-foot family monuments.
Others - Other custom shapes are available upon request. Benches, plaques, and signs are some other choices.
