What to consider when buying a memorial

Purchasing a memorial can be a challenge; after all, it is not usually something that we will have purchased many times before, if ever. We understand that many of our clients will be buying a memorial for the first time, which is why we do all we can to ease the process and make sure you are entirely happy with your purchase. Here are some of our tips to help you think about what you should be considering when it comes to buying a memorial, headstone or grave marker.

– The location. It is a good idea to start looking for memorials after you have established which cemetery or site they will be placed into. Many cemeteries will have rules regarding shapes, sizes and designs so it is important to know that your chosen memorial will be allowed in the place you have selected.

– Material. There are very good reasons why materials such as granite, bronze and marble are so widely used for memorials; they do not only look fantastic, but they are also extremely hard wearing, which is a must for outdoor memorials. We use quality polished granite for our memorials alongside other durable materials, offering long lasting results.

– Personalisation. If you are planning to have a memorial inscribed with text or images, you need to know that the company you choose are skilled enough to complete the inscription to the highest standards of skill and accuracy. We have been crafting memorials for decades and possess full BRAMM and NAMM accreditation, giving our customers peace of mind that they are working with a highly talented team.

– Pricing. Choosing a memorial can be stressful enough without added financial pressure, so you need to make sure you are working with a company that offers realistic pricing. We provide some of the most affordable kerb sets, ledgers and gravestones in the UK, and will craft a memorial for you at a price you can afford.
