Process

Purchase a Monument from Always In Stone

Pick Your Stone

  • Shop at a convenient ALWAYS IN STONE store where we have hundreds of monuments in stock. Big, small, unique or traditional – we have many to choose from.
  • Shop from the comfort of your own home 24/7 at www.alwaysinstone.com. If you see a monument we’ve done in the past, we can re-create it with your own personal touches.
  • Shop in the cemetery. Yes, we have almost 1,000 pieces in stock at all times. However, if you go to any cemetery, you will find tens of thousands of completed monuments. Simply take pictures or make notes to share with us.
