Buyers Guide

We offer variety. Visit our Design & Arwork Galleries to see all types of memorials; crosses, upright monuments and markers designed and carved for our customers. We listen carefully to what you, our customers, like and want.

Q: What steps do I take to buy a memorial at Delphos Granite Works?

A: We follow the four simple steps below to make it very easy for you, or your loved ones, to have a beautiful memorial with meaningful design work.

  1. We start by checking with your cemetery to find out what, if any, memorial restrictions we need to consider when designing your memorial.
  2. We talk with you and offer advice to help you in selecting the shape, size, type of stone, design, lettering style, etc. for your memorial. We can give you price range estimates at this point.
  3. Once we have established an agreeable basic concept and budget range, we put your ideas together in a color computer drawing showing exactly what your memorial will look like. (MouseOver image of drawing to see an example) We make installation arrangements and send you copies of a final drawing and a purchase agreement for your approval.

Q: How much do they cost?

A: Because of the quality of work shown on this site and in the brochure, some people have made the erroneous assumption that they couldn't afford a memorial from Delphos Granite Works. The fact is, if they can afford a memorial from anyone else, they can afford one of ours. We are just like any other monument builder in regard to price, our memorials come in all price ranges. The price of any memorial will vary greatly depending on the type of stone, size, amount of carving and surface finishes used. Because of all the potential variables, there is no way to create a meaningful price list. Each memorial design must be priced individually. We make sure we are fair and reasonable in the price we ask for our memorials.

Q: What about shipping and installation?

A: We make all the necessary arrangements to have your memorial installed on the concrete foundation. Your monument is protected against loss or damages every step of the way.

Q: What are the advantages of taking care of my own memorial needs?

A: The only way to assure your memorial will be to your liking is to purchase it yourself. Your memorial can be installed in the cemetery with only the final dates needing to be carved. Adding the final dates can be done at little expense by a local monument company. When you purchase your own memorial, you remove this future emotional and financial burden from your family. They will take comfort in the knowledge that the decision was yours and that you were truly happy with it.
