Frequently Asked Questions


What kind of warranty do you offer?
Campbell Monument Company offers a lifetime warranty on all domestic stones. Imported stones have a limited term warranty depending on what is purchased. A full version of our warranty is available on request.
My mother bought a monument from your company when my father died and she has now passed away. What do I need to do to have her final date engraved?
Email us at with the name, cemetery, and date to be inscribed. Final dates are done as a courtesy by our company.
We bought a monument from another company and need a final date done. Can you help us with that?
Unfortunately no. Our company does not do any final dates other than our own. In order to match the lettering exactly, we recommend you contact the original company where the monument was purchased.
How long does it take to get a memorial finished?
Once the monument is purchased and the proof is approved it takes about 60 days for domestic orders and usually about 120 days for import orders. All of this depends on factors like weather, complexity of the design, etc.
Aren't all stones the same?
Absolutely not. Monuments have been made out of several different stones historically. Marble and granite are the two most popular. There are many different grades of granite. You can easily be sold an inferior stone if you aren't properly educated on the differences in stones.
What is a Certified Memorialist®?
A Certified Memorialist® is someone who has undergone hours of study, received continuing education and passed a rigorous exam. They also have to continue to stay abreast of changes in the industry and are re-tested every three years. The CM label is the highest level of distinction a monument retailer can achieve.
The cemetery says that we have to buy the monument from them. Is this true?
No! This is illegal and is a violation of federal free trade laws. You can buy a monument wherever you want to. Cemeteries may add fees in order to mark the proposed area, but they cannot force you or threaten you in order to make a sale. A local experienced monument dealer is a much better source for monuments, plus you will get a better product and service.
