Headstone Shapes and Styles
Headstones come in a variety of shapes and styles. The two main styles of custom headstones are in-ground headstones and upright headstones. In-ground custom headstones in Upland are usually rectangular and lie flat on the ground at the top of the grave.
Upright memorial headstones consist of two pieces that also sit at the top of the grave. The first piece is a flat-lying base, and the second piece is called the die. Standard bases are rectangular, but the die comes in several shapes. The most classic shape is a rectangular stone with an arched top. Other shapes include square, oval, and teardrop. Edges can be rounded, squared off, or left rough.
Our custom grave marker service in Upland allows customers to order a custom-cut headstone in the shape of a cross, heart, obelisk, double grave monument, and more.
In-ground headstones come in three standard sizes. The most common size is a 24” by 12” stone; however, our custom gravestone service can cut different dimensions. Upright headstones vary in size depending on which shape you choose. Upright monuments typically have measurements between 20” to 30” long and 30” to 48” tall.
The size of the headstone you order will depend on what you want your headstone company to inscribe on the face of the grave marker. The more you wish to put on the headstone, the more prominent of a stone you will need.
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 needed.
Our headstone service will help you decide what to inscribe on the grave marker. In-ground headstones typically include the deceased’s name, birth date, and death date. It’s possible to have your headstone provider custom engrave a border design on the small headstone.
Oaktree Engraving & Monuments’ headstone service will help you choose engravings and etchings when you choose a larger-sized headstone.

Oaktree Engraving & Monuments can help you with headstone etchings, too. Headstone etchings are like engravings; however, etchings don’t go as deep in the stone as an engraving. Etchings can be very detailed. Here are some examples of landscape and image etchings for grave markers:
- Handprints or footprints
- Portrait with or without added angel wings
- Icons of favorite things (interests, animals, etc.)
- Mountain or forest scene
- Ocean or lake landscape
- Religious images or symbols
In addition to engravings or etchings, you can add fixed decorations to the base of the headstone. Vases, potted plant holders, and plaques are common additions.
People who intend to visit the gravesite and bring flowers or plants choose vases and plant holders. Vases can hold live or artificial arrangements. Plant stands can hold potted or hanging plants, depending on your selected holder.
A custom statue can sit at the base of the headstone. We can also make picture plaques that attach to the headstone’s face. These decorations provide added beauty.
