Memorials are important even for people whose bodies have been cremated. Establishing a special place for people to visit to remember their family member’s life can greatly enhance the healing process. Modern approaches to cremation are no longer limited to urns, and now include large family monuments, as well as small individual memorials. Permanent memorials help in the natural grieving process by providing a single location where you can go to feel close to those who have passed on.
At Smet Monuments we use only the latest technology and our laser equipment is no exception. We are able to laser etch anything from a beautiful landscape, to a portrait of your loved one. Both result in a remarkably detailed, fully custom, and durable monument: an ideal option for preserving the memory of a loved one.
Smet Monuments is proud to produce a wide range of custom porcelain photo shapes and sizes. Porcelain photos are a popular option that allows full-colour photos of scenes or your loved ones to be included on memorials. Porcelain photos are durable, will not fade from the sunlight, and feature a lifetime warranty against damage or discolouration.
Shaping & Carving
Beautifully hand carved and crafted, these custom memorials are sure to stand out and provide that extra special element to your monument. Each memorial should reflect the individual(s) it represents, so here at Smet Monuments, we can provide a variety of distinct, original, and special shapes to help preserve the memories of loved ones.
This new program we are offering is called Everlasting Memories and it harnesses the power of your mobile device, through scanning a QR code to link a monument to an online memorial dedicated to your loved one. Everlasting Memories captures and links pictures, movies, obituaries, guest book, map to final resting place, family tree, and much more.
Custom granite benches can range from elegant hand craved works of art, to natural and rugged cuts of granite.
Civic & Military
From large civic monuments to small military memorials, at Smet Monuments we look forward to working with you on your tribute.
Cremations are no longer just bound to urns. Here at Smet Monuments we provide a full range of cremation memorials.
The ultimate tribute to you and your family is the construction of a private mausoleum: an artistic structure that is built from only the best granites.
