Headstones and other types of memorials have come in all shapes and sizes over the generations. Experienced stone carvers can create almost limitless shapes, and where cemeteries permit, many people choose to have a more unique shape to the traditional.
Here are 15 of the most common shapes you can request from most personalized headstone companies. Many headstone suppliers will have some of these shapes in stock as they are very popular. Unless you have a complicated headstone shape you’d really like, it usually makes sense to choose from one of these standard choices; they’ll be a shorter wait time, the costs will be significantly reduced and either way the message that’s on the memorial is the most important to the majority of people.
