Monoliths are one piece headstone that is attached directly to the cemetery foundation.  It is used to cover a single grave for one, two or three burials.  Certain sections within some cemeteries require this type of headstone.  They usually range between 2'6" to 2'9" in height.

Monuments consist of two pieces of granite: 1) a horizontal piece called the base and 2) the upright piece called the die.  The single monument is used to cover a single grave that is set up for one or two burials.  The standard height requirement is 3-ft., however some cemeteries may allow the monument to be taller.

DePaola Monument Company can create any design to your specifications, providing you with a palate of many different granite colors from which to choose.  Below you will find a few examples of monoliths and single monuments.  To see our full selection, please call to arrange an appointment, at your convenience, at either of our two locations, or at your home.
