Purchasing a Monument Before Need
In today’s world more people are pre-arranging their funerals to lessen the burden for their spouse or family. At the same time they will purchase their own monument. Through a personalized design, which you help to create, the monument can reflect your beliefs, values, whatever is meaningful to you. What do you want to tell future generations about yourself and your family? This is your chance to make your personal statement for history.
You can save money when you buy a monument before the need arises. Like everything else, it will cost less now than in years to come.
Depending on the style, size and colour that you choose, you can expect to pay between $500 to $2,500 for a flat marker or pillow marker. The average double upright monument will cost approximately $2,000 to $4,000 depending on size and color. A more elaborate upright monument with ornaments such as photos and etchings, statues and vases may cost you more than $5,000.
