Headstones and monuments in Fredericksburg Virginia

Choosing A Memorial

Clients rarely come to us with experience in purchasing a monument for a loved one and can sometimes be unsure about what to expect. We are dedicated to providing step by step assistance throughout the entire process. Carroll Memorials patiently guides our clients through the purchase, design, fabrication, and installation process, allowing clients to feel comfortable and in control.

Much has changed in the monument industry during the last 100 years such as:  advances in computer technology, changes in carving techniques and availability of granites from all over the world. These changes have dramatically altered how headstones, memorials and monuments are purchased, designed, fabricated, and installed. Carroll Memorials has embraced these changes while remaining a small, privately-owned company that treats grieving families with the utmost respect.

Step One – Headstone Design

headstone designOur experienced and creative designers employ the latest Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology to produce high quality, personalized granite or bronze monuments. Carroll Memorials welcomes each client to be as actively involved in the planning and design of the monument as they wish to be. Clients are first invited to explore our large display and review a variety of brochures and photographs prior to choosing a monument design. Next, our designer sits down with each client to personalize the monument using the CAD technology. This allows us to make changes quickly and easily and provides both our clients and staff with a precise replica and template of the monument. All clients approve and receive a computer generated rendition of their monument prior to its fabrication.

Step Two – Headstone Fabrication

headstone fabricationUsing the CAD generated template, we produce a vinyl stencil of the memorial design. This is placed on the granite memorial and our skilled craftsmen then carve and sandblast the stone. Once the stencil is removed, the the stone is cleaned and additional services such as shaped carving, hand carved letters, personalized etching, gold leaf, and raised lettering are completed. All details are checked against the computer design, and if the client chooses, a final approval is set up prior to installation.

Step Three – Headstone Installation

All monuments are set on a concrete foundation which has been hand poured and checked for accuracy and levelness. We take care to treat the surrounding areas with respect and give the stone a final cleaning upon installation. As a result, we have an excellent working relationship with area cemeteries.

Step Four – Completion
