Markers

The term marker can refer to several different styles of markers. Slant markers are midway between an upright monument and a ground-level marker. They offer sufficient space for a personalized design. Bevel Markers are slanted so that the back of the marker is slightly higher than the front of the marker. They are set above the ground making them easier than a ground-level marker to locate in the cemetery. Grass Markers are what is described as ground-level. They are set so they are level with the ground around them.

Benches

Benches have become increasingly popular as they provide a functional way to memorialize a loved one. A bench offers a place of rest and meditation. They are an excellent memorial alternative in cemeteries as well as in places where people pass and gather. Let Abel Vault & Monument create a bench to honor the memory of a friend or loved one that can be placed either in a cemetery or within a park or other public or private area.

 

Signs

Make a statement about your business, school, club or other organization with a granite sign. Choose from traditional designs or bring in your own ideas, logos and other artwork, and Abel Monument Company will create a lasting sign you will be proud to display for all to see.

Vases

It is this commitment to quality and a dedicated craftsmanship that makes Metalcraft vases stand out among all others. 

Our History

Abel Vault and Monument is a fourth generation company that was founded by Bernard E. Abel in 1933. After winning a $5,000 baseball pool, Bernard bought land and all of the equipment he would need to start his own burial vault business. Ten years later, when a local buyer couldn’t afford a shipment of monuments sent from a Vermont distributor, he saw an opportunity to expand the business, and purchased the monuments. At that time the company took Abel Vault and Monument as its name.
