"A Rock of Ages monument is a combination of flawless granite and superb craftsmanship"  

The most permanent symbol of remembrance is the selection of a memorial.
Not because someone has died, but rather because they lived.

A warranty?
-For a stone?! 
 
Yes, find out more.

We take great pride in being able to provide our families with Rock of Ages granite. Other retailers may attempt to explain that their granite memorials are quarried from Rock of Ages, unless your monument has the Rock of Ages seal engraved directly on it, the memorial is not from Rock of Ages.  Only a small percentage of the stone quarried from Rock of Ages meets the stringent quality standards necessary to be used as a memorial that carries a Rock of Ages warranty.

A monument can, and should, tell the story of one’s life. This memorialization helps by giving us something tangible; to lean on, kneel in front of, leave notes, cry, plant beside, or say things we never got a chance to say.  It helps the healing process…

When the time is right for you, call or visit us.
We understand the importance of remembering.

As Ottawa's only authorized Rock of Ages dealer, Pinecrest Remembrance is uniquely situated to offer families the unparalleled quality and beauty of a genuine Rock of Ages memorial.
The tradition of creating a memorial to honour a loved one is as old as humanity itself. It is part of our natural desire to show our love and respect for those who have touched our lives.  It is a powerful way to express feelings in a creative and enduring way.

Granite, which makes up 70–80% of the Earth's crust, is an igneous rock formed of interlocking crystals of quartz, feldspar, mica, and other minerals in lesser quantities.  Large masses of granite are a major ingredient of mountain ranges.  Granite is a plutonic rock, meaning that it forms deep underground. Slow cooling gives atoms time to migrate to the surfaces of growing crystals, resulting in a coarse or mottled crystalline structure easily visible to the naked eye.
