Listed below are instructions on how to purchase an infant memorial stone with a bronze plaque. The infant memorial stone pictured above is comprised of a granite base and a bronze plaque that features Mary holding her walking stick (staff) accompanied by a small lamb. This symbolism is appropriate because the infant memorial stone was commissioned by the Stevens family to honor their young daughter who passed away, named Mary Stevens. Pictures of Mary and a lamb are common features on infant memorial stones because of the famous nursery rhyme of nineteenth-century American origin titled "Mary Had a Little Lamb". Mary Stevens' birth date, May 6, 1984 and her death date, June 26th are inscribed on the bronze plaque. A bronze flloral vase is attached to the bronze plaque, which is itself, attached to a small granite base. The cemetery marker was custom made by Kornick & Berliner Monument Company of Chicago, Illinois.

Kornick & Berliner Monument Company designs individualistic bronze cemetery markers for babies, bronze headstones for kids and bronze grave markers for toddlers that commemorate the life of a child for families in Chicago, Illinois and the surrounding areas. We are also experts at inscribing epitaphs, quotations and other short sayings that honor deceased infants. We design bronze markers in our showroom on 3058 W. Devon Avenue in Chicago. Once the bronze marker is made, we then deliver the bronze markers to cemeteries in the Chicagoland area, or ship them to various locations outside of Illinois.

Call us at 773-764-7600 or visit our showroom at 3058 W. Devon Avenue in Chicago to learn about your personalization options for bronze markers for newborns. You can choose from a wide variety of bronze and granite colors, designs fitting for a tribute to a little one, symbolic emblems, artwork and lettering. Our bronze markers for children often are designed with meaningful imagery to accompany the boy's or girl's name, and birth and death dates. Some of the most popular cemetery memorials for children are heart-shaped and teddy bear shaped plaques that are securely fastened to flat granite bases. Common emblems cast in the bronze plaques include pacifiers, toy building blocks, praying angles, Mary and her lamb, a bib, an angel and lamb, a rattle or butterflies. Some families who order bronze markers from our company choose to provide us with one of their favorite photos of their progeny. We then create a porcelain or ceramic copy of the baby picture and attach it to the bronze plaque or grave marker. Some bronze markers that we fabricate also include an attached bronze vase for flowers.

Cemeteries in Chicago and throughout the United States offer many different options for the memorialization of a youngster. Our experienced staff is always glad to help our customers with ideas for infant gravestones. We have years of experience helping parents to choose appropriate and charming bronze markers for their baby that passed away. Families that don't bury their baby or experienced a miscarriage, will frequently choose to place a memorial marker in a cemetery. Bronze markers for stillborn babies usually are inscribed with just a single date, rather than a birth and death date. Some our our clients who had a miscarriage or who didn't bury their infant still choose to order a beautiful and durable bronze plaque attached to a sturdy granite base. Once we manufacture the memorial marker, it is then delivered to a cemetery where it is set on a plot.

High quality bronze markers and bronze memorials are normally manufactured using a process called casting. Bronze is an alloy made from copper and other metals. This alloy is much harder than plain copper. The experienced memorial designers at Kornick & Berliner Monument Company work with families during the design phase by explaing the various bronze grave marker options. Bronze memorial plaques are produced using a sand mold. Molten bronze is poured into the mold. The bronze markers then go through a process called chasing which removes imperfections. Brown paint is often applied but the top edges of lettering and design features retain the original bronze color which produces a contrasting effect. Flush bronze plaques are often attached to a granite base with brass fasteners. Epitaphs are frequently added to bronze markers and bronze plaques. Once the bronze marker has been completed, it is then delivered to a cemetery and installed.
