Frequently Asked Questions – FAQs


We produce everything from small grave markers to large imposing monuments, and so the simple answer is a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars.  A better question to ask is, “What are my options and how much do I want to spend?” At Brown Memorials, we will educate you on your headstone options, and then help you determine a budget to meet your needs.  We can work within any budget, and guarantee the best design and quality for every price range. There is no better value. Would you like more info about headstone designs and prices? Click here to access our Memorial Headstone Price Guide

All of our upright monument prices include installation on an extensive concrete foundation, and we guarantee our work to never tilt, lean or settle into the ground, or we will fix it at no charge to you.  Engraving of the names and dates of birth and passing are also included.

Most often, your best choice is in working directly with a regional memorial specialist.  While an online gravestone price may appear less, it typically does not take into account the cost of installation.  Not to mention, you will often spend more time than is necessary in coordinating the delivery and installation.

If your regional gravestone retailer is not able to to fulfill your desires or lacks professionalism and competence, then working with a gravestone retailer online may be a good option.  

One thing is for certain, you should never settle for a memorial.  This is something done only once, so work with a company you know will provide you with the best options, produce a quality headstone, and stand behind their work.  We are glad to offer our services nationally, and can ship memorials anywhere in the continental United States. Speak with one of our memorial specialists today, and learn how we can create a compelling tribute beyond your wildest imagination.

A memorial represents life, not death, and cremation is merely another means to prepare the body for a permanent memorial.  If you or a loved one are considering cremation, do not limit yourself by thinking that your memorial has to be any different.  In fact, some of the nicest and most personalized memorials that we have produced in recent years have been for those who chose cremation.  In early 2018, one of our designs for a family in rural Dillon, SC was awarded the Best Cremation Monument in North America by the MBNA.

Families who choose cremation may save $10,000 – $15,000 compared to traditional burial expenses, and many are choosing to put that savings toward a personalized cremation monument, preserving their family’s story for generations to come.  How do you want to be remembered?
