Cemetery headstones, or grave markers, are placed at the top of a grave to identify the person laid to rest at that specific plot. You can order a headstone with a minimalist look or work with Oaktree Engraving & Monuments’ custom headstone service in Victorville to create a unique grave marker.
Our custom gravestone service can help you honor the life of your loved one and the memories they leave behind. Standard grave markers have the name of the deceased, their date of birth, and date of passing engraved on the face of the headstone.
Custom grave markers can display a person’s nickname, favorite quote, bible verse, and much more. Work with our Victorville headstone monument service to create a fully custom headstone. We can help you choose from a variety of headstone styles and designs.
Our Victorville headstone service offers engravings, etchings, and decorations to make genuinely personalized headstones.
Part of our headstone service includes a fully customized engraving for the face of the headstone of your choice. Our compassionate customer service representative can help you decide what words, phrases, or pictures to put on the grave marker. We can also provide you with a list of fonts.
You may consider engraving words or phrases like:
- Military rank or veteran status
- Favorite quotes or bible verses
- Rest in Peace
- Forever in Our Hearts
- Handprints or footprints
- Etched icons of a favorite interest
Families who want a picture of their loved one on the headstone can choose between two picture styles. The first type is a porcelain picture.
A porcelain picture is a plaque made by printing an image onto a ceramic tile. The plaque attaches to the gravemarker with adhesive. The ink used on the ceramic tile is fade-resistant.
We suggest choosing a clear picture with a high resolution. Your headstone provider can assist you with the ordering and installation process.
The second type of picture is an etched picture. You can choose to have a portrait of your loved one etched on the headstone, or you can choose a different image. Common images include a landscape design or religious scene. Examples of pictures you can have etched onto the headstone include:
- Sunrise or sunset
- Lighthouse or ocean
- Forest or tree of life
- Animals, birds, or feathers
- Flowers, wreaths, or plants
You can choose to order decorative elements from your headstone company. These items can be installed directly on the headstone’s base or near the gravesite. Things like flower vases, plant holders, small statues, and even decorative flags can help you personalize the gravesite.
As a custom Victorville grave marker service, we help you honor your loved one by designing a genuniely unique grave marker. We offer over ten shades of granite, ranging from blue, red, black, gray, and green. Our headstone company also provides several bronze headstone options if desired.

As a custom headstone provider, we offer more than standard grave headstone shapes or flat gravestone markers. Traditional cemetery headstones are rectangular, upright stone slabs with a curved or arch top. There are also rectangular gravestone markers that lay flat on the ground. Headstone shapes and styles you should consider include:
- Slant Monument – a headstone with a slanted face that sits on a flat, rectangular base
- Upright Monument – a stone called a die that sits upright on a flat, rectangular base. The die can be rectangular, square, oval, or teardrop. Edge finishings can be rounded, squared off, or even left unfinished with a rocky look.
- Obelisk – an upright headstone that looks like a pillar with a pointed top
- Cross – an upright headstone in the form of a cross
- Rock – a monument that looks like a stone
