Cemetery Lettering On-site

Preparing Stencil

Preparing Stencil

During the spring, summer, and fall we set out to various cemeteries in the area to add final dates to monuments erected in the cemetery.  Small carvings, additional lettering/family name can be added at  a families request.  Prices vary based on the amount and size of characters or the size of the design.  The best place to start is to call our office and we will look at your monument.

One thing we get asked over and over again is whether the final date to be lettered is included in the original cost of the monument. The answer is no.  Here are a few reasons why.

I just wanted to thank you for the nice job you did putting the date on my mother’s headstone.  It is a
pleasure to find a business that does a job when they say they will.

People tend to purchase their monuments before they need them, and so hopefully they will live 20 years or more after the purchase. During that time, the business they purchased from may change ownership ,or it may not even be in business anymore. So, only the lettering that was originally contracted for on the monument is included.

Regardless of where your family initially purchased the monument, Harrisville Memorials will be able to match  the style and size of lettering on your gravestone. We take great pride in our ability to tackle any project and perform the job well.
