Monuments

Dedicated to Excellence

Permanent memorials, headstones and grave markers identify your loved one’s final resting place and provide a physical reminder of the relationship you shared. These monuments create a place to gather in memory of those lost, and to inform future visitors to the site of the lives that were lived. Many families find comfort in the process of designing fitting memorials for those who have passed on and in visiting their chosen monuments throughout the grieving process.

Our monument specialists at Dengel & Son have decades of experience in designing many of the beautiful and unique monuments you see in the cemeteries in Franklin County. We would be happy and honored to work with you to create a permanent tribute to the life of your loved one. No matter what you have in mind, any gravestone or larger memorial structure you can dream of can be created for you.
