Lloydminster Premium Memorial Services
One of the most important aspects of laying a loved one to rest is the gravestone marking their final resting place. Our granite headstones and monuments are of the highest quality possible and can be simple, extremely personal, or somewhere in between. We create custom memorials in a variety of styles to ensure that your essence lives on. We take great pride in providing beautiful headstones to commemorate and honour each other after death.
Monuments, Headstones, and Gravestones
We have a variety of headstone, gravestone, and monument options to choose from to suit every personality and every requirement. We offer fully customizable upright headstones, pillow monuments and other flat markers, bronze markers, children memorials, pet memorials, and gravestone accessories for extra embellishment, decoration, and personalization.
Pillow monuments are rectangular in shape, sit above the ground and are slightly sloped so that they are easier to read.
Upright headstones are the most popular choice for marking a grave and are available in a wide variety of styles, shapes, sizes, and finishing touches. These headstones can be custom made in any shape and size you want, whether that’s the typical rectangle, a rounded top, a heart, a bench, or something totally unique. We design custom solutions for both single and double upright headstones to give you even more choice. Our double headstones are available in two styles, either a single block or a winged shape on a base. The options truly are endless when you choose an upright monument. We can cut the granite to any shape you’d like to add a bit of personality to the headstone if desired.
Children memorials include all the same information as a regular headstone, but they’re specially designed to match the significance of a deceased child. There are many options to choose from with kid-friendly designs such as stuffed teddy bears, hearts, angels and other religious symbols, children’s toys, and more.
Losing a pet can be just as devastating as losing a two-legged family member, so we create custom pet memorials as well. You can choose any type of memorial, from upright headstones to flat markers to custom urns for cremation.
Flat and Bronze Markers
If you prefer the flat marker option over an upright headstone, we have many styles available. The flat markers are flush with the ground rather than raised like the pillow monument. These flat markers can be engraved or fitted with a bronze marker depending on your style preference.
For an even more personal touch, you can select some accessories for the gravestone. We’ll add an inscription, install candle lanterns, add porcelain photos or portraits, or erect marble statues.
Customizing a headstone or other memorial is an essential step when designing the perfect gravestone. Our artists are highly skilled and exceptionally creative, capable of bringing your vision to life so we can honour your loved one in the best way possible.
If you opt for a black headstone, you have the option of detailing the headstone with laser etching. This is a very precise process, which allows for the etching of portraits, landscapes or designs with extensive detail. To keep things simple, you can select one of our ready-made etched scenes. If you want something truly personal, ask us to etch a portrait, laser an image of a hobby or passion, or etch an inscription of a poem.
Granite Colours to Choose From
All of our monuments are available in beautiful colours. We have many granite colours to choose from including black, india red, cats eye, mahogany, mountain rose, gem mist, laurentian green, grey, blue pearl, and brits blue.
Pre-Planning for Your Funeral
Our pre-planning services are available to anyone wishing to custom design their own headstone before passing. Many families prefer to plan ahead to remove the burden on their loved ones. By choosing your headstone in advance, you’ll know that it reflects who you are as a person, and you can feel good about leaving your family with one less decision to make on your behalf while they grieve.

Why Are Most Memorials Made of Granite?
