To remain together even in death, many married couples choose to be buried next to each other and share a headstone.
This kind of headstone, with two names, is known as double headstones for married couples.
What’s a double headstone?
Essentially, a double headstone is used to mark two burial spaces next to each other or two burials interred on top of each other.
As its name suggests, the headstone displays two names and is large enough to represent two graves sites. Most tombstones are available in single or double sizes. A double-sized headstone is also called a companion headstone.
