Slant markers are set to stand upright on a concrete foundation or on a granite base. Common type of slant markers are serpentine top shape with polished front, back and top with natural rock pitched edges.  These stones can be used as a single or companion stone.

Upright Single Monuments

Upright monument headstones are tablet style gravestones that sit on a granite base, and are set on a foundation. They can vary greatly in shape and size, only limited by cemetery regulations. Single upright headstones, or "individual" upright monuments are generally taller than they are wide.
