Listed below are many of the services that our company offers to residents of Chicago and other Illinois community residents. Our experienced and skilled craftsmen are experts at working with monuments, memorials, headstones, bronze plaques, mausoleums, cemetery markers and gravesontes.   If you are interested in any of our services, please call our office for a quote and/or to schedule service at 708-544-0916.

One of the most popular services that we perform is on-site engraving. Troost Monument can engrave the date of death, as well as any additional text you would like, to a headstone that is already in the cemetery.  We do the work in the field so the monument will not need to be removed.  You can place your engraving order by phone, on-line or at any of our retail locations.
