Terms Related to Monuments
The following are some terms related to funerary monuments.

Apex: An apex is the sloped top of a monument die. An apex rises to a point from each side of the monument’s top.

Bust: A bust is a statue of an person’s chest, shoulders, and head. Busts are popular artistic objects. They can be used to commemorate a loved one in your home, and they could even be placed in the cemetery with or without a headstone.

Columbarium: A columbarium is a cemetery building. This is where urns filled with cremated remains can be kept.

Crypt: A crypt is actually only part of a mausoleum or other cemetery structure. A crypt is the part of a mausoleum where a person's remains are kept.

Die: The is the top of a two part headstone. The die, which is where an inscription or other design is located, sits on top of a base.

Disposition: Disposition is the process of putting remains – whether intact or cremated – in their final resting place. This is often done in the presence of loved ones at an event called a graveside service.

Interment: Interment is the burying of remains in the ground. This term only applies to intact remains, not cremated ones.

Inurnment: Inurnment is putting cremated remains into an urn. Urns are often taken home by loved ones, though they could also be buried or placed in a columbarium.

Monolith: A monolith is a headstone that does not have a base. As with other funerary monuments, inscriptions and designs can typically be put on a monolith.

Vault: A vault is a concrete grave liner that completely surrounds the casket or coffin. There are also grave liners that only cover the top of the casket or coffin. Grave liners reduce ground settling.

Monuments are not only large memorial structures or historical markers. Monuments may take the shape of bronze urns or even small plaques in a cemetery or etched into a head stone. Many graves and tomb stones also carry inscriptions that commemorate the person who was laid there. Custom insignias and signs may be placed before tombs, to honor the man or woman buried there. Many monuments are remembered for their age, size or historical significance to a society. Monuments may be iconic landmarks, religious sites or a famous design made to symbolize, equality, freedom and the like. Having any number of questions lined up may help an individual glimpse a better understanding of the purpose and reason for having monuments.

  • What is the purpose of erecting a monument?
    These monumental structures are raised to improve the appearance of a city or locale. Often, plaques are placed at the foot of the monument to describe the reason for that particular effigy.

  • Are all monuments monoliths?
    No, monuments can be as miniscule as a memorial marker on a park bench or even a head stone for a grave. What is important is the fact that the monument is there in remembrance of the society that once stood or the man or woman who had lived.

  • What do monuments represent?
    The social meaning of these structures can vary significantly depending on the outlook of different social groups. Some see monuments as figures of protection or religious intent, while others may see it symbolic of oppression, the ideals of a culture or a false idol.
