Headstone Inscriptions by Treanor Stone-Tec

Monumental Inscription

A monumental inscription or headstone inscription is typically carved in stone. Granite, Marble, and Limestone are the most popular materials for engraving a headstone Inscription. The purpose of a headstone inscription is to serve as a memorial to the deceased. The inscription engraving is normally arranged by family members or close friends. A typical headstone inscription states the deceased person’s name, date of birth and their date of death. The deceased’s relation to other family members who may have passed before them is also stated. A short memorial verse or epitaph is usually engraved near the bottom of their gravestone. Longer inscriptions can also be engraved on memorial plaques and placed on the gravesite.
