Suncrest Memorials has been a family-owned and operated granite monument provider for a quarter century. Founded by Les Bignold in Crooked Creek, Alberta, Suncrest became a provider of all types of granite markers, including bevel, upright, heart, double wing, flat and many custom memorials.

Les loved his clients as well as the granite and rock profession, and enjoyed many years of personally creating everlasting works of art.

Ownership Team

In 2014, Suncrest Memorials was acquired by Wes and Kim Schartner of Debolt, Alberta. The Schartners look forward to serving past and future clients with compassion, personalized service, and outstanding focus on getting your memories enshrined forever.
