Catholic Funeral Monument


The death of a loved one in your family is a very painful event. Many formalities need to be taken care of for the organization of the funeral. For centuries, the funeral process has varied according to the religion of the deceased. At Martel & Sons we take care of catholic monument design. 

The Catholic memorial is used as the basis for the design. A granite monument is frequently used as to commemorate the life of a loved one. The same goes for the choice of funeral monument, such as the headstone. Generally, people who choose catholic memorials are from Catholic families, but how do you make your selection?

Monument finishes

At Martel & Sons, you can select a funeral decoration in the shape of a cross. It can be of different styles and made of wood, granite, iron, stone, etc. and is typically installed on the stele.

How to choose the most suitable memorial?

The selection of different types of Catholic memorials is primarily influenced by the personality of the deceased. There are not really any rules to be followed (except those of the Catholic cemetery), nor traditions.

  1. Basic
  2. Refined
