For over four decades, Oaktree Engraving & Monuments has been a Chino Hills’s family-owned and operated headstone provider. Our professional customer service and quality craftsmanship are unmatched in Chino Hills. We provide our customers with custom headstones and grave markers at affordable prices.
Custom grave markers have been around for hundreds of years. Our custom gravestone service helps make each gravesite marker unique so you can easily identify the gravesite you’re looking for.
Grave markers usually have at least three pieces of information engraved on them. This includes the name of the deceased, their date of birth, and their date of death. Since we are a custom headstone service in Chino Hills, we can engrave grave markers with more than the standard information.
Honor your loved one by choosing from a variety of grave markers. One of our helpful representatives will walk you through our Chino Hills grave marker service from start to finish. The first choices you have to decide on when ordering a headstone will include what material, color, size, and shape you prefer.
Our headstone service allows you to choose from several headstone materials and colors. Granite headstones are chosen most often because they are long-lasting and come in many colors. Our custom headstones in Chino Hills can be ordered in granite or bronze. Our granite headstones come in over ten different colors.
Headstones come in so many shapes and sizes. You can choose from upstanding headstones or flat-laying headstones. Cemetery headstones can be large enough to mark multiple graves or they can be small enough to mark a single gravesite.
Vertical headstones are available in square, rectangular, and oval shapes. The top of the vertical piece can be squared off, rounded, or left with a rocky, unfinished look. Our headstone company creates a unique headstone shape like a cross, heart, or teardrop.
The shape of the grave headstone you choose will also depend on what you want to have engraved on the face of the headstone.

There are a number of things you can have engraved on the headstone. Here are some examples of epitaph and personal information that can be engraved on a headstone.
You can add words and phrases to your loved ones’ headstones.
- Words of hope and love
- Bible verses or prayers
- Favorite sayings or quotes
You can add personal information to your loved ones’ grave marker.
- Life roles (father, son, brother, etc.)
- Military roles (branch, veteran status, service rank)
- Career roles (pastor, truck driver, farmer, etc.)
You can add etchings to your loved ones’ headstone. Etchings add beauty and meaning to the gravesite. A picture of your loved one can be etched onto the headstone. Other etchings, like a landscape, favorite hobby, or pet can also be etched on the headstone. Here are some etchings we have completed for our customers:
- Tree, forest, and mountain landscapes
- Sea, ocean, and lake landscapes
- Hobbies like fishing, gardening, and sports
- Vintage trucks, cars, or motorcycles
In addition to custom etchings and engravings, there are decorations that can be added to the headstone. Plant holders, vases, and porcelain pictures are common add-ons to grave markers.
Vases & Plant Holders
If you plan to bring flowers or potted plants to the gravesite, it’s a good idea to add a vase or plant holder on or near the headstone. Vases and plant holders keep live and artificial flowers and potted plants in place.
A porcelain picture can be specially made to put on your loved ones’ headstone. The porcelain picture is printed on a ceramic tile with fade-resistant ink. You can choose to use a black and white picture or a color picture. Pictures can be of one individual, a couple, or multiple family members.
When you add a porcelain picture, you should choose a picture with good color balance and high resolution for the best results. When completed, the porcelain picture is permanently placed on the headstone.
