About Quiring Monuments


An industry leader in designing and creating quality custom headstones, memorials, and monuments in North America, Quiring Monuments brings over 100 years of family tradition, experience, and compassion to help you permanently preserve the memory of your loved one.


You deserve nothing less than outstanding customer service, excellent design, and trustworthy manufacturing when exploring the right solution for your family. In moments such as these, you deserve the best.


Customer Service


We specialize in building unique memorials for cemeteries, gardens, or public locations. Each design request is different and we will strive to build your memorial with creativity, sensitivity, and precise attention to detail.


Your experience with Quiring is a seamless one. Our experienced team of monument designers coordinates the design, delivery, and installation of your memorial. Our design consultants will contact the cemetery on your behalf to ensure that your memorial arrives safely and meets all cemetery requirements. This means you get reliable, quality service every time, backed by our certified warranty.




At Quiring Monuments, we design and carve a diverse array of headstones, tombstones, and grave markers.


We accomplish this by using unique granites, shapes, textures, and finishes and then combining them with high-quality graphic art, lettering, portraiture, hand carving, etching, bronze bas-relief attachments, and full round sculptures.


As we integrate new age technologies with traditional monuments, you and your family can connect and share information about your loved one using our personalized Living Headstones® websites.


Holding degrees in graphic art, design, and fine arts, our craftsmen have years of experience with the tools, techniques, and materials of our trade. Artists and designers at Quiring Monuments have won all of the most prestigious international design awards in the North American memorial industry, including:

  • Biondan Trophy (1998, 2000), given by the Monument Builders of North America
  • Eugene H. Faehnle, FAICA Trophy (1997), given by the American Institute of Commemorative Art
  • Seattle Mayor’s Small Business Award (1999)
  • Selected for The History Channel documentary, Modern Marvels: Cemeteries



We are one of a small number of retail companies with its own nationally recognized designers on staff. In addition, unlike most retail companies, we also have our own manufacturing capabilities.
