Houston Jewish monuments help commemorate your loved one’s life and offer friends and family members peace. While this can often be a difficult time, designing a memorial for your loved one can help you gain closure and also help keep your loved one’s memory alive with a completely personalized tribute that will stand the test of time. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the process of choosing the right monument for your loved one. 

Check With The Cemetery For Houston Jewish Monuments Rules & Regulations

One of the first steps you should take when designing Houston Jewish monuments is to check with the cemetery about any rules or regulations. Many cemeteries have size restrictions or requirements for the type of material you choose for your loved one’s cemetery marker. This is to help keep the cemetery looking uniform and help with headstone and cemetery maintenance. 

Once you know the particulars of the cemetery’s rules, then you can start thinking about what you want the headstone to look like. Houston Jewish headstones are fully customizable, so you can create a lasting memorial to your loved one. 

Designing A Memorial For Your Loved One

Houston Jewish monuments generally fall into these categories: slant monuments, upright monuments, and memorial benches. You can also choose grass-level markers to memorialize your loved one. First, you should have an idea of what type of grave marker you want for the person, and any custom shape if desired. From there, you can set a budget for design based on starting costs. 

Choosing the stone color is the next step for designing the grave monument. Granite comes in a huge range of colors to help you personalize the headstone. Different colors generally come from different locations across the globe, so the color you choose can affect the Houston headstone cost due to shipping.

Next, you’ll need to consider the engravings you want on the Houston Jewish monuments. It’s customary to include both English and Hebrew inscriptions on the cemetery marker. Most people choose to have the name and dates in both English and Hebrew. In addition, you may also want to add an epitaph to help honor your loved one’s life. 

You will also need to consider if you want to add any symbols or artwork to the monument face. For example, many choose to add the Star of David or the menorah to the monument. Many also choose to add small pictures that show their loved one’s hobbies or interests. 

Once you’ve chosen the different design elements you want for the memorial, we provide a full-color mock up to help provide a visual before creating the monument. We understand that this is an important purchase, which is why our team will work with you to make any adjustments as needed to help you create the perfect memorial for your loved one.
