As your chosen headstone provider, we can provide you with pre-cut, standard sizes for cemetery headstones. Oaktree Engraving & Monuments also custom cuts headstone designs so you get the exact size you’re looking for.
In-ground headstones come in several sizes. The most common size is a 24” by 12” stone; however, with our custom gravestone service, we are able to cut different dimensions as needed. Upright headstones vary in size depending on which shape you choose. It is common to order a headstone that is 20” to 48” tall and 20” to 30” long.
The size of the headstone you need will depend on what you want your headstone company to engrave on the face of the headstone.
Headstones come in a variety of shapes and styles. The two main types of custom headstones are in-ground headstones and upright headstones. In-ground custom headstones in Corona are usually rectangular in shape.
Upright memorial headstones are comprised of two pieces. The first piece is the flat-lying base and the second piece is the die or vertical piece. Standard bases are rectangular but the die comes in several different shapes. The grave marker shape you choose can be rectangular, square, oval, or teardrop. Edges of the die can be rounded, squared off, or left rocky and unfinished.
Our custom grave marker service in Corona allows customers to order a custom-cut headstone. Specialty shapes include crosses, hearts, obelisks, double grave headstones, and more.
Our headstone service will help you decide on what to put on the grave marker. Flat in-ground headstones usually include the name, birth date, and death date of the deceased. It’s possible to have your headstone provider custom engrave additional designs and information on the headstone.
At Oaktree Engraving & Monuments’ headstone service, we suggest engraving a meaningful epitaph. An epitaph includes words and phrases on how your family will remember your loved one.

Oaktree Engraving & Monuments can help you with headstone etchings, too. Headstone etchings aren’t cut as deep in the stone as an engraving does. Etchings can be very detailed. Here are some examples of scenery and pictures etchings for grave markers:
- Religious images
- Handprints or footprints
- Mountain or forest scene
- Ocean or lake landscape
- Portrait with or without added angel wings

It’s common to add a porcelain picture to a grave marker. We take a copy of the picture and print it on ceramic tile with fade-resistant ink to make the porcelain picture. You can choose a color or black and white picture. Choose a crisp picture with high resolution for the best results.
In addition to etchings and engravings, you can add decorations to the base of the headstone, too. Vases or potted plant holders are common. These items let you have somewhere to keep flowers or plants when you visit the cemetery. A custom statue can also be made to sit at the base of the headstone. These decorations provide the gravesite with added beauty and provide you comfort.
