Headstones & Monuments in Mira Loma
For over 45 years, Oaktree Engraving & Monuments has been Mira Loma’s family-owned and operated headstone provider. We provide our customers with custom headstones and grave markers at affordable prices. Our professional customer service and quality craftsmanship are unmatched in Mira Loma.
Importance of Grave Markers
Custom grave markers have been around for hundreds of years. Our custom gravestone service helps make each gravesite marker unique so you can quickly identify the gravesite you want to visit.
Traditional grave markers have three key pieces of information engraved on them, including the deceased’s name, date of birth, and date of death. Since we are a custom headstone service in Mira Loma, we can inscribe your loved ones’ grave marker with more than the standard information.
Types of Memorial Headstones
Honor your loved one by choosing from various headstone styles and designs. The first choices you have to decide when ordering a headstone include the material and color you want. Then you have to determine what shape and size you want. One of our helpful representatives will walk you through our Mira Loma grave marker service from start to finish.
Headstone Materials and Colors
Our headstone service allows you to choose from several materials and colors. Granite headstones are typical because they are long-lasting and come in many colors. Our granite headstones come in over ten colors. You can order a Mira Loma headstone in granite or bronze.
Headstone Shapes and Sizes
Headstones come in so many shapes and sizes. Cemetery headstones can be large enough to mark multiple graves or small enough to mark a single gravesite. You can choose from upstanding tombstones or flat-lying grave markers.
Vertical headstones are available in classic shapes like a teardrop, rectangle, square, and oval. The edges of the vertical piece can be squared off, rounded, or left with a rocky, unfinished look. Our headstone company can also create a unique headstone shape like a cross, heart, or obelisk.
The shape and size of the grave headstone you choose will also depend on what you want engraved on the headstone’s face. Upright monuments are usually between 20” and 30” long and 30 to 48” tall.

- A family nickname
- Life roles (sister, aunt, daughter, etc.)
- Military roles (honors, veteran status, service rank)
- Career roles (elected official, sports player, diplomat, etc.)
You can add etchings to your loved ones’ headstones. Headstone etchings add beauty and meaning to the gravesite. You can choose to etch a picture, landscape, favorite hobby, or pet on the gravestone. Here are some of our previously completed etchings:
- Tree, forest, and mountain landscapes
- Sea, ocean, and lake landscapes
- Hobbies like sewing, gardening, or fishing
- Animals like eagles, bears, or pets
In addition to custom etchings and engravings, there are decorations that you can add 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, adding a vase or plant holder on or near the headstone is a good idea. Vases and plant holders keep flowers and potted plants contained.
Oaktree Engraving & Monuments can specially make a porcelain picture to place on the headstone’s face. The image gets copied onto a ceramic tile with fade-resistant ink. Photos can be of one individual, a couple, or multiple family members. You can use a black and white image or a color picture.
Choose a picture with good color balance and high resolution for the best results when you add a porcelain picture. When completed, the porcelain picture gets permanently placed on the headstone.
Custom Monuments for Private or Public Display
We are more than a custom grave marker service in Mira Loma. Oaktree Engraving & Monuments has worked with city departments to create and display public monuments to memorialize essential community members and events. We place the monuments on public property, like city parks.
As a custom monument headstone provider, we also design and create monuments for private display. You can put a memorial monument in your yard or garden to remember and celebrate the life of your loved one.
