For women you know have married or were married at some point in their lives, look for the name with the husband's surname on it. Some also will not have the maiden name although a few do. Often it is not possible to put all names on a headstone due to the size of the headstone, so this helps when trying to locate a female name.
Granite headstones, tombstones or vertical monuments installed at all cemeteries may need inscription, dates or added words of endearment inscribed on the existing headstone. As family members pass on you may want to add on some special words or even a porcelain inlaid photograph to the monument or on a granite bench at the gravesite.
