Headstones & Monuments in Hesperia
Since 1976, Oaktree Engraving & Monuments has been a family-owned and operated headstone provider in Hesperia. We provide our customers with personalized grave markers and custom headstones at affordable prices. Our compassionate customer service and quality craftsmanship are unmatched.
Importance of a Custom Grave Marker
Grave markers have been around for thousands of years, but custom grave markers have only been around for hundreds of years. Our custom gravestone service helps make each grave unique and easily identifiable.
At a minimum, grave markers have three pieces of information engraved on their face. Information you want to include on the grave marker will be the deceased’s name, birth date, and death date. Since we are a custom headstone service in Hesperia, we can engrave grave markers with additional specifications.
Types of Memorial Headstones
Honor your loved one by choosing from different styles of grave markers. One of our compassionate customer service representatives will walk you through our Hesperia grave marker service from beginning to end. The first decisions you have to make when ordering a headstone include what size, shape, material, and color you prefer.
Headstone Materials and Colors
Our headstone service allows you to choose from several different headstone materials and colors. Granite headstones are a common choice because they are long-lasting, durable, and come in many different colors. Custom headstones in Hesperia made by Oaktree Engraving & Monuments come in over ten different granite colors. We also offer bronze and other stone options.
Headstone Sizes and Shapes
Headstones come in many sizes and shapes. You can choose an in-ground, flat-laying headstone or an upstanding headstone. Cemetery headstones can be large enough to represent multiple graves, or they can be small enough to mark a single gravesite.
Upstanding headstones are available in rectangular, square, teardrop, and oval shapes. The edges of the vertical stone can be rounded, squared off, or left with a rocky, unfinished look. You can also have our headstone company create a unique headstone shape like a cross, heart, or obelisk.
The size and shape of the grave headstone you choose will depend on what you want to be engraved on the headstone’s face.
Custom Headstones in Hesperia
As the area’s number one headstone provider, Oaktree Engraving & Monuments offers custom engraved grave marker service near you. To personalize and customize your loved ones’ headstone, you can choose from different engravings, etchings, and decorations.
Oaktree Engraving & Monuments is one of the area’s leading headstone companies because we offer complete customization on our headstone engraving services. You will be able to choose the font as well as a decorative border design. There are many other things you can choose to have engraved on the headstone, too. Here are some examples of our previously competed engravings.
Some people want to add words and phrases to their loved ones’ headstones.
- Favorite sayings, music lyrics, or quotes
- Bible verses, religious phrases, or prayers
- Words of hope and love
You can choose to add personal information to your loved ones’ grave marker.
- Personal nickname
- Life roles (mother, sister, aunt etc.)
- Career roles (pastor, lawyer, teacher, etc.)
- Military roles (honors, veteran status, service rank)
You can add etching to the headstone to add beauty and meaning to the gravesite. It is possible to have your loved one’s picture etched onto the headstone. A landscape, favorite hobby, or pet can be custom etched on the headstone, too. Here are some examples of etchings we have completed:
- Tree, forest, and mountain landscapes
- Sea, ocean, and lake landscapes
- Vintage cars, trucks, and motorcycles
- Hobbies and interests (like fishing or gardening)
Plenty of decorations can be added to a headstone in addition to engravings and etchings. Porcelain pictures, vases, and plant holders are commonly added to grave markers.
We can create a porcelain picture to put on your loved ones’ headstone. The porcelain picture is made by taking a copy of the photograph and printing it onto a ceramic tile with fade-resistant ink. Pictures can be of one person or multiple people. You can choose a black and white image or a color picture.
If you want to order a porcelain picture, we suggest choosing a picture with high resolution for the best-looking results. Once completed, the porcelain picture is attached to the headstone with a strong adhesive.
Vases & Plant Holders
If you plan on bringing flowers or potted plants to the gravesite when you visit, it is a good idea to attach a vase or plant holder to the base of the headstone. Vases and plant holders will help keep live artificial flowers and plants in a designated place.
Custom Monuments for Public and Private Display

In addition to headstone designs and custom grave markers, we work with city departments to create and display public monuments.
