We cater to the memorial needs of the folks of Southeast Texas as well as to customers all over North America. Our extensive portfolio shows that we routinely create memorials that no one else in the area can match.

In 1992 I started High Cross Monument Co. with the dream of creating monuments with traditional Celtic design for folks of Scottish or Irish descent. Over the years our work has gone to all parts of the U.S., up into Canada and even out into the Caribbean!  You can view this Celtic work on our other website,

Over the years more and more local families have come to us to create unique and meaningful memorials for them and their loved ones. Regardless of style, our focus has always been on designing and carving memorials to the highest professional standards. So large or small, fancy or plain you can count on us to do it right!

My long-time Assistant, Derrick DeYoung has been carving our memorials for over ten years. His vast experience and close attention to detail assure that your memorial will be sculpted with great care to the highest standards. 


Over the last 25 years we have created a wide-ranging portfolio of work. High Cross Monument Co. has become known in the monument industry as a source for memorials of outstanding design and quality, winning numerous design awards from our peers along the way.

I consider myself extremely fortunate. I truly love what I do for a living. Remember, "You can't do what you can't imagine, so imagine!"

If you like the memorials you see here I hope you will give us a call. We would welcome the chance to build a truly unique memorial for you or a loved one.
