As each individual person is unique, so too are the options regarding memorials and how we mark someone’s life. We are pleased to have our own Memorial Masonry Department and can offer advice on the many styles of headstones which are available.
A selection of headstones are available to view at each of our premises, as well as brochures detailing many other options that can be provided. Our team will provide guidance and work with you throughout the process to ensure the memorial is exactly as you had hoped.
Having guided you through the various colours of granite as well as sizes and designs of headstones which are available, we will lead onto how the memorial can be further personalised with the inscription.
Once the headstone has been selected we can apply to the Cemetery Authority concerned for permission to erect the memorial. Meanwhile our sculptor will prepare a scale drawing showing how the headstone will look in order that you may approve this.
The finish of the lettering is often dictated by the colour of the granite. For example a black granite tends to have the inscription finished in gold leaf or silver whereas a light grey granite may have a black inscription upon it.
We would expect a memorial to be erected within 10-12 weeks from the time it is ordered, although this may be a little longer if the memorial is being specially manufactured.
Our company are proud to be members of the National Association of Memorial Masons. Each of our memorials are erected in line with their Code of Practice to ensure that we provide the highest possible level of service whilst ensuring future safety in the cemetery through the stability of the memorial.
