Archdiocese of Philadelphia Grave Markers

Grave markers are the plaques at a gravesite that identify and honor the deceased. The Catholic grave markers that we have for sale are a classic style of bronze, or flat granite, installed on a granite stone base.

 What factors affect the costs of grave markers in Philadelphia

If you want an in-ground burial, you will want some type of memorial, either an upright monument or one of these bronze markers. Costs tend to be lower for grave markers, but final costs do depend on the size, material, and amount of inscription included. Information typically inscribed includes:

  • The deceased’s name
  • Date of birth and death
  • Personal information about the deceased, Scripture passages, or the approved prayers of the Catholic Church.
