What We Do

Getting things done

Carl Kay Memorials is a full-service memorial retail and production company located just north of the 20 bypass on Michigan Street in South Bend, Indiana. We feature an indoor showroom, as well as a large outdoor display. Our caring monument specialists guide each family we serve through the process of selecting and personalizing a lasting tribute for their loved one. The range of possibilities is limitless. Memorials can be traditional or contemporary, featuring carved designs or custom laser etchings. They may reflect a person’s deep faith or a favorite hobby, the beauty of nature or a life’s work. Once the completed design has been approved by the family, the memorial is carved and lettered in our shop. We take pride in our craftsmanship, knowing that each memorial we erect is an enduring symbol of a treasured life.

Our services go beyond the cemetery as well. We have considerable experience in civic memorial design, commercial signs, and engraved landscaping elements. Our bricks and boulders serve as wonderful gifts and may also be used as unique fundraising items. Other miscellaneous products and services include cemetery vigil lights and candles, cremation urns, cemetery lettering, sandblasting services, monument cleaning, and monument repair. The staff of Carl Kay Memorials is available to assist with whatever your needs may be, from small gifts to large projects. It is our privilege to serve you. We care, because you care.
