Permanent memorials stand the test of time. Choose from sculpted memorials, upright monuments, granite marker, garden markers, memory boxes and much more.

Neilan Funeral Home offers, full service in selecting a monument or cemetery marker, through our monument company Ocean Monuments. We are affiliated with The Vermont Wholesale Granite Company, which carries high quality, guaranteed grades of granites.

We will spend the time it takes to offer personalized design consultation and sketches and we will deliver and set in area cemeteries.

Most people feel a cemetery memorial should be a personalized tribute to the deceased, characteristic of an individual's personality, career, hobbies, family history and /or dedication to humanity.

We at Ocean Monuments/Neilan Funeral Home recognize this philosophy and strive to honor and remember heritage, individualism and contributions to society.

Please allow us the opportunity to assist you in selecting your family memorial. You may speak to one of our representatives (Mark Ennis, Pasquale Folino or Chris Neilan) by calling the Neilan Funeral Home at 860-443-1871.

Selecting A Memorial

Our staff can help you create a fitting memorial. There are several decisions that need to be made when selecting a memorial. They include:

  1. Style
  2. Color
  3. Design
  4. Inscriptions
  5. Cemetery regulations




Flat markers lay flat in the ground. They are available in various colors. They come in individual and companion sizes.


Pillow markers are much like flat markers except that they are wider on one side creating a beveled surface. Some prefer this because it is easier to view the inscription from farther away while maintaining a low profile. They come in individual and companion sizes.


Just as the name indicates, these markers have a pronounced slanted surface. The inscription is easily read from a distance and the stone has an elegant pedestal like appearance. Again, these markers come in several sizes.


Upright monuments stand vertically upon a base. They offer the maximum surface area for creative personalized design and they can be cut into a variety of different shapes. There are many shapes and sizes available.
