A bevel marker sets above the ground. There is no cement foundation with a bevel marker. These markers have a beveled or slanted top where the back of the stone is a few inches higher than the front. The standard bevel is 8″ high at the back of stone, and has a 1.5″ drop to the front. These markers can be used to identify individual burial plots, and are used in association with a family monument. A double bevel marker can be used for two grave burial plots, side by side.
