Many cemeteries allow only flat or bevel markers on your loved one’s grave. Single markers are also called flush or grass markers. A bevel marker has a two inch pitch, making the back raised slightly more than the front. These types of memorials are available in many shapes and sizes. Most are rectangular due to cemetery regulations.
A companion grave marker is an extra wide grave marker designed for life long companions. These markers are typically wider than normal grave markers to accommodate two sets of names, and many now have a unique look that distinguishes them from other grave markers.
