Trigard Memorials hosts free Memorial Security Webinars June 7

Trigard Memorials invites cemeteries, funeral home combos and memorial dealers to attend a free 20-minute webinars on Tuesday, June 7, to learn how Memorial Security can help lock in marker sales.

Visit to register for one of three sessions: 9 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 4 p.m. Central Time.

Memorial Security was developed in response to a challenge in the memorial park that the Darby family owns.

Chief Operating Officer Rich Darby watched families choose cemetery space, but purchase markers at-need from a monument shop that mailed something to the family after reading the obituary in the paper. Memorial Security is designed to help cemeteries lock in memorial sales and provide families with outstanding value.


Trigard is a family owned and operated business based in Danville, Illinois, that has catered to the varying needs of the death care industry since the 1960s. Trigard’s bronze memorial division was established in 2003 and has developed innovative new techniques for shaping, coloring and finishing pure bronze and other materials to produce unique grave memorials, plaques, signs and trophies.
