At Lardner Monuments, we offer you the absolute best value in a memorial. We make our headstones and cemetery monuments at our North Topeka location, which means there are no extra costs for outside production or sales commission. 

Most importantly, we offer you superior experience, service, workmanship and creativity.

Because of the many customization options available, prices can vary. And remember, the granite you choose for your headstone and grave marker is primarily what determines the price.

a man who works with his hands
and his brain is a craftsman;
but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.

Design Ideas


If you have an idea of how you want the finished stone to look or know what you want on it, call, email a description, or send us a quick sketch. We will use your information to create a  drawing that we will send back to you.

For those who aren’t sure how you want the stone to look, browse through our design gallery or visit local cemeteries to get inspiration.

  • If you see a monument in our gallery you like, just give us the name on the monument and we will adapt it to your particular desires.

  • You may find something in the cemetery that looks right for you. If so, take a photo to email us and we will send you a full color conceptual drawing.

  • We can even duplicate an existing memorial if there is one you would like to match. If this is the case, let us know so we can explain how to make a rubbing of the stone to give us all the information we need.
