We went through the ordering process online and it was very easy. I was surprised when notified in a week that it was complete. They stored it for us until we could get it installed sometime later. I had not seen marker until we installed it and it was perfect. Great job!
Very happy with everything!!!
Excellent product, excellent price, excellent service. Highly recommend.
Our family recently purchased a double flat gravestone to replace old markers on our parents graves. The website at Prairie Flat Memorials was so easy to use, the ordering process completely painless, and the price was fair and much better than anything else we found. The stone arrived in 9 days and we loved it! The kind personnel involved in all aspects of our purchase couldn’t have been kinder. Nothing but a positive experience!

We recently purchased a double headstone to replace an old set on our parents graves. The website was so easy to use and our stone was delivered in 8 days. From the phone call the day before saying the stone was arriving, to the drivers who delivered it to our house, as requested, we honestly couldn’t have asked for better service. The stone is absolutely beautiful! We highly recommend Prairie Flat Memorials!
