We also can design and build a family columbarium that can be set in a cemetery, private property, or institution.  The columbarium size, shape, and niche count can be customized to hold however many urns your family wishes.

The columbarium structure is divided into separate niches made of Nylene or a powder coated aluminum interior.   Each niche is designed to hold cremated remains. The niches can be a standard size that can hold 2 upright urns, or they can be more customized using our aluminum niche core construction to achieve any desired size.  Granite shutters cover a hidden key locked inner security door that is designed to prevent the urns from being exposed when cemetery management swap out the spare granite doors for inscription.  This is a columbarium security feature developed by Sunset that provides families with greater peace of mind that their loved one’s urns are safely protected.

Sunset Stone manufactures its headstones in Calgary out of only premium quality granites. A monument needs to withstand the elements and the effects of pollution over time.  Granite is the most durable headstone material and is known to last the longest.  It is important to note that not all granite is the same. Sunset Stone uses only the highest quality granite to produce its monuments so that you can be sure your tribute will last for years to come.  

Sunset Stone doesn’t list its pricing for tombstones because every monument in Calgary that we produce is unique and customized. There are many factors impacting price: the style, from upright, pillow, and flat, to the size, colour, and shape. Where does the granite come from? Do you want to incorporate custom artwork? The best way to know how much your monument in Calgary will cost is to simply call us and request a quote.

You may be required to wait between 6 and 12 months before you can erect a headstone on a grave. The time of year of the burial and the climate, will impact the installation timeline. Some factors that may affect the installation will include soil settlement, traditions, and the bereavement period. Sunset Stone suggests adhering to your cemetery’s regulations for best planning to ensure that the headstones will be placed at the best time. 

Our busiest time of year for headstone installations begins in the spring and lasts until the fall’s first snowfall.  If you wish to purchase and design a monument for a spring installation, ordering and designing the monument during the slower winter months is the perfect time to avoid the spring rush.  Our design team will be happy to work with you one-on-one to create the perfect memorial for your loved one.

The cost of a headstone – even a 2-person headstone – will vary depending on your needs, customization, size, shape, colour, and size of the granite base. You can expect that a 2-person headstone in the flat marker style, to begin at just little under $1,000 and ranges just under $3200 for the larger flat marker size. It is important to remember not all granites are the same quality.  At Sunset we only sell the highest quality granite products to our customers.  Our pricing includes a one-on-one time working with our talented graphic art department in order to come up with the perfect headstone design. 

Pillow or upright monuments, crown memorials and custom headstones will cost more based on the size, granite color and base options.  So, if you have further questions and would like more exact costs, contact Sunset Stone’s sales team.  We will be happy to provide you with a price.
