Upright Monuments & Memorials
- An upright monument is what most people think of when they hear the word headstone or tombstone.
- An upright monument has 2 parts, a top (the part with the writing or design on it) and a base.
- Sunset’s upright headstones are mounted on granite bases, which are at least 4 inches (100 mm) thick. This keeps the memorials stable and secure. Some cemeteries have concrete foundations to put upright memorials on to keep them even more secure.
