A bevel top marker is type of raised headstone that lays flat on the ground at the head of the grave. This type of memorial is rectangular in shape, is usually about 8 inches thick and has a slanted and polished face on the front. It sits above grade and can be seen above the grass. A bevel memorial has a 2” pitch, or bevel, from front to back, making it easier to find in the cemetery than a lawn level or flat grave marker. The back of a bevel shaped headstone is about 2 to 3 inches higher than the front which creates the sloping appearance. The sloping effect makes it easier for visitors to the gravesite to read the engravings, epitaphs and inscriptions. Customers of the City Monument Company frequently buy bevel memorials at our showroom in Miami, Florida because they are more affordable than upright monuments, because they offer more options for engravings and stylistic enhancements than flat markers and because they are easier to locate in the cemetery grounds than a flush memorial. Floral vases, ceramic photos and porcelain pictures can be attached to the granite gravestone. They are also referred to as slant markers, hickey markers or pillow markers.

When bevel markers or bevel memorials are set above a grave in a cemetery or memorial park, they are usually set on a concrete or granite foundation. These burial plot markers are available in a variety of sizes and colors. Typical granite colors used to make bevel markers include red, black, gray, blue, pink and mahogany. These types of cemetery memorials are made from high quality granite. Unique designs can be engraved, hand etched or laser etched on the polished surface of these popular cemetery memorials by the expert stonecutters at the City Monument Company. They are normally used to mark the graves of one or two people. Bevel markers that designate the location of the grave for one person are called individual bevel markers or single bevel markers. Bevel markers that designate the location of the graves for two people who are buried side by side are called double bevel markers or companion bevel markers. Because of the slope, rains drains off this type of monument to help wash off dust and dirt which helps them stay clean.
