Regarding sizes...

All markers and monuments are described by their size in the same fashion, length x width x height. Length refers to the distance from left to right as you read the marker, width is the distance from front to back, and height is bottom to the highest point. Monument dimensions often fluctuate up to 1/2".

Below are measurements, and sizes, typically used throughout Michigan, for single and double graves.  Keep in mind that your cemetery may require an alternative. Give us a call. We may have your cemetery information available in our office.
