How do you want to be remembered? Quiring Monuments
knows it's a question we all should ask ourselves but often don’t. Why is that? Maybe it’s because thinking about our mortality can be depressing. Or maybe we just don’t like to think about the fact that one day we won’t be here anymore.

But it’s important to think about how you want to be remembered. Because when you’re gone, that’s all people will have of you and your memories, and you want those memories to be good ones.

So how can you make sure you’re remembered in the way you want? One way is by choosing the right memorial for your grave. It sounds morbid but bear with me.

A memorial is a stone that bears the inscription of your name and dates of birth and death. You can choose a flat memorial, flush with the ground, or an upright memorial that stands tall. You can also customize your memorial by choosing different granite colors, adding custom art, or a photo of yourself. 

Of course, price is always a consideration when choosing memorial headstones. A basic headstone can start as low as $800, while a more elaborate uprights can cost upwards of $5000 or more. So, it’s important to know what kind of budget you’re working on before making your decision.

Why is It Important to Think About How You Want to Be Remembered?

What is the Difference Between a Headstone and a Gravestone?

When you die, it is customary for your loved ones to purchase a headstone or monument to mark your grave. But what is the difference between the two? A headstone is usually a flat stone that is flush with the ground, while a monument is usually upright, most often resting upon a foundation.

Monuments are generally more expensive than headstones because they are larger in size and take longer to create. We can make them from a variety of materials, including granite, marble, or bronze. 

It is important to think about which type of marker you would like for your grave before you die because it can be difficult for your loved ones to make this decision on your behalf. If you have specific instructions for your funeral arrangements, be sure to include them in your will or write them down somewhere so that your family knows what you want.

How Much is a Two-Person Headstone?

The price of a two-person headstone depends on several factors, such as the material they made it from, the size of the stone, and whether it includes any special features or designs.

We typically make headstones from granite or marble, which are both durable materials that will last for many years. The size of the stone also affects the price; a larger headstone will cost more than a smaller one. Also, if you want any special features, such as custom graphics or photos, this will also add to the cost. We can even make living headstones.

Generally speaking, a simple granite headstone for two people can start at around $1,000, but prices can range upwards of $5,000, depending on these factors. It is important to shop around and compare prices before purchasing so that you can find the best deal possible.

One important factor to keep in mind when shopping for a headstone is the size. Headstones can range in size from small plaques to elaborate monuments. The size of the headstone will affect the price, with larger headstones costing more. Headstones are made from a variety of materials, including granite, marble, and bronze.

The material you choose will also affect the price.

What is the Cheapest Price for a Headstone?

The cheapest price for a headstone depends on several factors, such as the material they made it from and whether it includes any special features or designs. However, headstones made from granite are often less expensive than those made from marble because granite is more readily available than marble. Additionally, if you do not want any special features such as art or photos on your headstone, then this will also help keep costs down.

Can You Buy a Headstone Anywhere?

No law dictates where you must purchase a headstone, so you are free to shop around. However, most funeral homes have relationships with local headstone dealers and can often get you a better price. If you choose to purchase a headstone from a different source, just be sure to let the funeral home know so they can make the necessary arrangements.

The funeral home will probably charge you a markup if you purchase your headstone through them, so it is often cheaper to buy it yourself. You can find headstones online or at monument dealers. Be sure to measure the gravesite before ordering, so you know what size headstone to get.


It’s important to think about how you want to be remembered, because it’s a way of leaving a legacy. Your headstone is a physical representation of how you want to be remembered. It’s a permanent reminder for future generations of who you were and what you meant to the people in your life.

Two-person headstones are a great way to memorialize your relationship with someone else. We can customize them to reflect your unique bond and they’ll last forever. Prices for headstones vary depending on the size, material, and design, but you can find affordable options that suit your budget.
