On-Site Inscriptions and Stone Additions

Columbia Gardens Memorials offers on-site civic monument engraving services for local businesses, schools, churches, civic and non-profit organizations in tribute or to commemorate donors.    

It is not unusual to require additions to be made on previously set headstones or monuments. This is especially true of companion or double headstones, family mausoleums and estate monuments. Our staff is frequently in the field updating headstones, gravestones, and memorials with names and dates.

 No matter if the headstone or monument was designed by Columbia Gardens or another monument company, our on-site staff has an excellent reputation as experts in matching fonts, letter sizes, and engraving styles on pre-existing monuments. 

Our compassionate and dedicated staff is more than happy to offer guidance or answer any additional questions you may have.
