Why Choose Nelson Granite?

  1. Why Choose Nelson GraniteNelson Granite is the largest quarrier and manufacturer of memorial products in Canada and one of the largest in North America. All of the granite we use is quarried by us in Northwestern Ontario. We are the only manufacturer that can say we make only 100% granite above-ground and traditional memorials, meaning there are no inferior materials and mechanisms that will break down over time. With 100% granite products, there is practically no maintenance.
  2. We have a solid combination of state-of-the-art technology and traditional craftsmanship to create timeless, high-quality products. From the master stone cutters to the profile wiresaw and 5-axis CNC machines, Nelson Granite has the ability to bring any memorial idea to reality.
  3. Our above-ground columbariums and mausoleums are 100% granite and built in a load-bearing fashion, which means the unit will never shift or crack, nor does it derive any strength from the concrete foundation. They are the largest, thickest and heaviest unit on the market because they are built to last.
  4. Our columbariums and mausoleums come fully assembled so they are very simple to install in your cemetery. There will be no building crew on site, no assembly required and no long maintenance manual or spare parts list. A crane will lift the unit off the truck and set it on the foundation. We also include the straps and all necessary components to set the unit as well as diagrammed instructions to be used on site if needed.
  5. We are a fifth-generation, family-run business and have been in business since 1909. Every sales and office employee hired at Nelson Granite must do mandatory shifts in the manufacturing plants and in the quarry to ensure a well-rounded knowledge in how our products are made. That means we are not just sales people; we understand in-depth what goes into making our products. We are very proud of the quality of the memorials that we make and we know that they will truly last a lifetime in your cemetery.
