A memorial is a permanent symbol of remembrance and a traditional way of paying tribute to a relative or friend. Our experienced team will be able to help and advise you choose the right memorial to ensure that the finished product is to your requirements. We would be happy for you to inspect the memorial prior to it being placed on the grave.
The majority of memorials consists of natural materials – stone, slate, marble and granite – which are able to withstand the elements for many years, are strong and durable and can be shaped and personalised to a client’s wishes
CREMATED REMAINS MEMORIALS
Many cemeteries and churchyards have an area for the burial or scattering of cremated remains. These memorials are often smaller in size and may be of a flat tablet / wedge tablet / desk tablet style.
Headstones, as memorials, are available in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and finishes and, once the inscription has been chosen, it can be personalised further by adding photographs or designs.
KERB SETS AND LARGER MEMORIALS
In some cemeteries and churchyards, permission may be granted to erect larger memorials. These are supplied, as are all headstones, with full anti-subsidence platforms and the use of rustless dowels into all possible mortar joints to improve the strength.
Our Monumental Masons are able to clean, renovate and add inscriptions to all existing memorials. We safely store memorials that have been removed to allow new burials to take place. Then, following instructions from our client, we are able to carry out additional work including the re-fixing of the completed memorial.
