Philipsburg Marble and Granite Slant memorials are also known as a slanted gravestone, slanting marker and cemetery slant. These Slant memorials have a wide base that angles up (generally at 45 degrees) to a tapered top.
The slant memorial tends to have a slanting front or a sloping back mounted on a granite or cement foundation. It frequently is used to mark the location of an individual in a family plot. A slant grave marker resembles an upright headstone, though thicker and shorter than it.
