Excellent Service & Selection

Family-Owned & Operated in Frederick, MD Since 1874

Lough Memorials was founded in 1874 by Uriah Alexander Washington Lough. In 1912 the business re-located to 121 South Market Street in Historic Downtown Frederick, MD where it remains today. Before retiring U.A. Lough brought his son Charles into the business. Charles eventually retired and sold the business to two of his dedicated employees; Wilson Waltz and Frank Griffin. In 1982 Wilson Waltz sold the business to Merkle Monuments an established family owned memorial business with a tradition of excellence in quality and craftsmanship. Geoffrey Merkle Irwin, grandson of Raymond G. Merkle (founder of Merkle Monuments) is now one of the owners.
