Monuments

Choose from the pictures above to view upright gravestones and raised family monuments designs and pictures manufactured for Chicago cemeteries by the Peter Troost Monument Company. Click here to get prices and ordering information for upright gravestones and raised family monuments.. Many other monument retailers and cemeteries out-source the most important part of the process-the actual carving of the memorial. They never see the granite being used and have no quality control. Here at Troost, we design and manufacture our grave markers right on the premises, assuring the highest levels of quality and customer service. We have hundreds of designs to choose from or our talented staff members can assist you should you have a special design in mind.

Cemetery memorials and gravestones come in a variety of shapes and colors. There are many different sizes, shapes, and colors of granite to choose from. They can be flush to the ground (lawn level), slightly pitched (bevel), slanted (slant), or an upright monument which is usually a tablet on a base. We are the leading supplier of private family mausoleums in the Chicagoland area. Benches and special monuments for cremains are also increasingly popular ways of memorializing a loved one. When choosing a gravestone, grave marker or headstone, there are several important decisions that you will need to make. Please refer to our "Prices" or "Ordering" sections for more information.

The Peter Troost Monument Company of Chicago, Illinois is uniquely qualified to work with you to create a beautiful monument. We carefully select granites from around the country and around the world to bring you some of the most attractive, unusual and durable stone available, giving us a selection of colors unmatched by any of our competitors. Our award winning designers will create a special gravestone for your loved one, no matter how small or big the budget. Some of our best work can be viewed in our galleries below.
