/media/mortonsmortuary/Flush.png GRASS OR FLUSH MARKERS
A grass or flush marker is a stone that sits flush with the ground. These markers are generally
24" x 12", but may be larger or smaller.
/media/mortonsmortuary/Bevel.png BEVEL OR HICKEY MARKERS
Bevel markers have a beveled or slanted face where the back of the stone is a few inches higher than the front. They are generally 8" high and have an 1 ½" drop back to the front.
/media/mortonsmortuary/Slant.png SLANT MARKERS
Slant markers are cut with a slanted face and are taller than the bevel marker. They may have one or two names and are generally 1 foot 2 inches high (or higher in increments of 2") and 10" or 12" wide.
/media/mortonsmortuary/Upright.png UPRIGHT MONUMENTS
Upright monuments consist of the die and base. The die is the top part of the monument that sits on the base. The tops are usually serpentine, oval or straight, however other styles and custom shapes are also available at an additional cost. The base is the lower part of the monument and generally has a polished top, sawn bottom and rock sides.

Benches are an ideal choice in areas where people pass or gather. They are an excellent option in areas such as parks and other public places where typical monuments may not be suitable.
