Choosing a Memorial
A memorial is a lasting monument - A tribute to a person's life - and we understand that you will wish to choose it carefully. Hasty decisions made while still in great distress can result in regrets later on. It may be sensible to wait, and to spend time on selecting a suitable design, an idea is to look at surrounding monuments to help you decide on your own design shape and colour.
A memorial should be made of a material that will withstand the weather, can take a lasting engraved inscription (and additional engraving later on) and is suitable for shaping and ornamentation. Time and experience has shown that natural stone (Concrete, Sandstone, Marble and Granite) has all these qualities.
Dealing with the Rules and Regulations
As you may know, cemeteries and crematoria have different regulations governing the types of memorials which are permitted. These regulations vary from place to place and must be checked before a choice of memorial is made. At a time of bereavement, dealing with such rules and regulations is an unwanted and unnecessary extra burden. With our extensive knowledge and experience, we can guide you through the process of choosing the appropriate materials and design, and creating a suitable lasting memorial for your loved one.
Our aim is to provide you with a memorial of the highest quality, and to make the whole process as smooth and trouble-free as possible for you.
