Choosing Memorials

Memorials are a lasting tribute to a person’s life and so naturally great consideration should be taken when choosing the design and inscription. Shown here are just a few of the designs available for memorials. To assist you in your choice we can provide you with a brochure and price list. Please contact us for information.

When you are ready to discuss your memorials requirements please telephone us and we will :

  • advise you on the relevant Cemetery or Churchyard regulations which may affect your decision.
  • advise you on the suitability of your chosen memorial, taking its location etc., into consideration.
  • guide you with regards to the inscription, its wording, length and font style.
  • provide current Cemetery/Churchyard fees
  • send a full written estimate of costs for your approval.

All work is carried out by a mason on the Register of qualified Memorial Fixers to National Association of Monumental Mason standards.
