Carpenter Breland Funeral Home and Monuments carries a complete line of monuments and markers.  We use only the finest granite from the United States, Canada, India  and Africa. Your memorial stone will be custom designed for you by one of our in house design team members. From the initial conversation, to the setting of your monument in the cemetery, the staff at Carpenter Breland will fully serve your family.  We won't be expected to meet with a third party.   

A memorial from Carpenter Breland Funeral Home & Monuments is truly a work of art, not a standard design you may see on other monuments.  We pride ourselves in personalization and design our monuments with hand etched scenes offer lasting beauty for generations to enjoy.

Whatever dollar amount you wish to spend, our experienced staff can help you choose correctly and sensibly, designing a memorial that will represent full value for your investment.

When the time comes to select your personalized monument,  we hope you will withhold your decision until we have the privilege of discussing your options with you. Just as we have served thousands of others families in this area, we believe sincerely we can serve you with dignity – with the very finest memorial craftsmanship – and at the most reasonable cost.

If you wish, please feel free to phone us and we will be glad to talk with you at your home or our offices.

The Department of Veterans Affairs provides headstones and markers for the graves of veterans anywhere in the world and for eligible dependents of veterans buried in national, state veteran or federal cemeteries. Flat bronze,flat granite, flat marble and upright marble types are available to mark the grave of a veteran or dependent in the style consistent with existing monuments at the place of burial. Niche markers also are available to mark columbariam used for the inurnment of cremated remains. 

Headstones and markers are inscribed with the name of the deceased, the years of birth and death, and branch of service. Optional items that also maybe inscribed at VA expense are: military grade, rank or rate; war service (such as "World War II"); months and days of birth and death; an emblem reflecting one's beliefs; valor awards received; and the Purple Heart.Additional items may be inscribed at private expense.

When burial is in a national cemetery, military post or state veterans cemetery, the headstone or marker is ordered through the cemetery, which will place it on the grave. Information regarding style, inscription, shipping and placement can be obtained from the cemetery. 

When burial occurs in a cemetery other than a national cemetery or a state veterans cemetery, the headstone or marker must be applied for from VA. It is shipped at government expense to the consignee designated on the application. VA, however,does not pay the cost of placing the headstone or marker on the grave.
