These are memorials that consist of a combination of a tablet and a base. This design is the most versatile of all the styles and the most protected from damage. A base that has rough rock sides will never show damage and the upright tablets can be cut into just about any shape or size.
The upright portion can also be made with multiple pieces and again, those pieces can also be cut into just about any shape. The vertical design of the tablet offers the most efficient use of the monument's surface area for the blending of lettering and design work with the beauty of the polished granite. This design also stays cleaner than any other style. This type of memorial is more costly than other style but, as you can see, there are definite advantages to the multiple-piece upright.
