Slant Headstones

Slant headstones 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. Unique memorials like oval shape can be created by choosing special cut designs.

 

Slant gravestones are similar to an upright monument, but shorter and thicker. Slant markers provide a space for mounting memorial plaques like bronze veteran markers on the back, and lettering details on the front.

 

Most cemeteries regulate the size, finish, color and sometimes design engraved on the markers. Slant tombstones can be used both in markers section and monument section of the cemetery. However depending on the cemetery, slant markers can be placed as stand alone marker on a concrete foundation or on a granite base. 

 

Usually single markers are 20 to 36 inches long and 16 to 18 inches tall. Double markers are 24 to 60 inches long and 16 to 24 inches tall. 10" thick slant markers are recommended, however 8" thick can be used as well. 12" thick slant markers are also used in some areas.
