Silk Floral Arrangements
We maintain an inventory of artificial floral stems for use in the vases of grave markers. The flowers found in many craft stores are beautiful, but are not made to withstand the South Texas climate. Our silk floral arrangements are purchased through a company that manufacturers floral arrangements specifically for cemetery use, and are designed to last longer outdoors. They are resistant to sun-fade, rain and extreme climate changes. The cost of our silk flowers are very comparable to others, but we assure you that their quality is greater, and you will be more pleased with the longevity for the needs on a grave marker. Sold online or in the office.

There are several different names for grave markers: memorial headstones, granite headstones, bronze markers, cemetery headstones, and upright headstones. Hayes Grace Memorial Park Cemetery offers bronze markers made of exceptional quality, and these flush bronze memorials offer an unparalleled versatality. The names and dates can be cast in a variety of typefaces and the memorials can be personalized with different border styles. It is easy to include epitaphs, emblems, and sculpted or ceramic portraits as well. For ordering information, please contact our office.
The majority of monuments are manufactured of granite, marble or bronze. We feel that granite monuments afford the greatest longevity. Marble monuments make nice looking memorials, but are more easily chipped and subject to discoloration. Bronze makes nice looking monuments but generally are added to granite. For more information and examples of each of these type of monuments, please contact our office.
Our newest section of the cemetery allows for the construction of family mausoleums. Mausoleums must be purchased and planned through our cemetery office. For more information and examples of these types of mausoleums, please contact our office.
Burial vaults are manufactured in several ways and of different materials. Some materials used in vault manufacture are Copper, Stainless Steel, Steel and Concrete. The primary design idea is to keep the casket dry in the grave by prohibiting the entrance of water. Copper vaults are among the most costly and are priced dependent upon the copper content. Stainless Steel, as the name implies, are vaults that are rust resistant. Steel vaults are manufactured by thickness of metal and come in galvanized and non galvanized in thicknesses of 7, 10 and 12 gauge steel. The 7 gauge is the thickest and the 12 gauge is the thinnest. Copper, Stainless Steel and Steel vaults are manufactured to function as an air seal vault. The tops are the largest part and serve as a dome that covers the casket and latches to the base underneath the casket. The air trapped in the dome prevents the entrance of water as would a glass inverted in a sink full of water. Concrete vaults are manufactured of concrete reinforced with steel. The base is the larger portion that holds the casket. The lid is then fitted on the base by means of a tongue and grove joint. Since concrete is porous, a synthetic liner is inserted in the base and lid to stop the entrance of water. In addition to Vaults, we also make available other merchandise relative to the funeral industry.
