Quality standards for our gravestones

Our expertise allows us to design original headstone models that are customized to meet all your expectations. Our experience and expertise are at your service for the creation of tombstones.

The quality gravestones we provide

We offer you a multitude of gravestone models, from the most traditional to the most original. While the reputation of our family business is based primarily on the quality of our services, it can also be explained by our expertise. And for good reason: our experience of over 100 years allows you to benefit from the best working methods and materials used.

We are attentive to your expectations to better understand the world of the deceased, and with your help, we design the tombstone model that will best represent who they were.

What are the materials used?

There is a wide selection of materials for funeral markers; however, we use granite for its many advantages.

The 3 advantages of a granite headstone

Granite is the most commonly chosen material for tombstones. And there is a reason for that: it has many advantages.

  1. It requires much less maintenance than other materials.
  2. It is stable and durable.
  3. It is also a material that is available in several colours. Granite can be gray or white, but also blue, pink, or green. There is also black granite. However, make sure to always inquire about the applicable rules of the cemetery.

Martel & Sons offers you many other granite funeral monuments, objects, and plaques, such as our granite memorial vase.

Different colours of our memorial headstones

Our marble workers can design an original headstone model in the colour of your choice. Whether it’s traditional and discreet with dark tones or more dazzling with bright colours, you can also make your choice according to the personality of your lost loved one.

Martel & Sons: opt for customization

The original gravestone is symbolic for many people. The headstone inscription may represent a personality trait, a moment from their life, a hobby, etc. While some people will want a discreet or contemporary funeral monument, others will want an original and customized headstone.

Guided by the instructions that you share with us, we design your original gravestone to make it unique and so that it truly reflects your loved one. Indeed, making a custom request for your funeral monument is increasingly common to have an original tombstone.

Finally, you should know that we also take care of the lettering and engraving design on your headstone inscriptions, with a personalized message if necessary. We also do this for funeral steles, burial vaults, and other funeral and cremation monuments. Don’t hesitate to contact us for any requests for information.
