Mark Every Grave Headstone Company – Tombstone Tuesdays June 25, 2019

I chose this company , Mark Every Grave – http://mark-every-grave.mybigcommerce.com/, for this week’s Tombstone Tuesdays post as headstones are often a sizeable investment and frequently you don’t think about them until somebody has died. I will repeat this below, but always check with the cemetery before a headstone from ANY company as cemeteries frequently have restrictions on headstones. Here’s a website I found a long time ago – http://www.everlifememorials.com/v/headstones/regulations-cemetery-headstones.htm

I first heard of this company several years ago – it offers inexpensive headstones, starting at $25.99. In the U. S., headstones can easily range several hundred to several thousand dollars or more, including some of the ones that are small flat granite ones similar to the ones offered by Mark Every Grave.

However, you need to check with the cemetery before ordering any headstone, be it from this company or another company, as cemeteries often have specific rules on what headstones are allowed. Plus, cemeteries usually have a setting fee that can range from minimal ($50) to are you kidding me ($2,000+) although most tend to be in the couple hundred dollars (USD) range in the U. S.

A friend purchased one of theses headstones for himself shortly after I mentioned it to him. He said it was a decent stone and showed it to me when it arrived. He said the letters could have been engraved a little deeper, but that was only his issue.
