A memorial to a loved one can be many things. It can be a summary of a life, a tribute to things achieved or a remembrance of things enjoyed. It may simply be a last act of love for the one that has passed away.
We are proud to offer a complete memorial masonry service, through our professional and qualified local stonemasons, for all new types of memorials from simple headstones to full grave memorial including kerb stones, including memorial tablets and vases. We can also arrange for existing memorials to be repaired and cleaned where needed.
Our highly skilled stonemasons can provide hand carved or precision machine cut lettering, bespoke carvings and carry out the installation on the grave.
After reaching agreement with the minister on the type of memorial that can be created, there are various steps that need to be fulfilled – some of which can take a considerable amount of time to complete, and require some payments to be made.
Churchyard, or cemetery, permits will need to be applied for whenever a new memorial is being ordered, or additional inscriptions are being added to an existing one. Sometimes the entire process can take 6-8 weeks, and until such time as the permit is received we are unable to commence the creation.
When everything is in place, the stonemason will be informed and the stone ordered, or arrangements for removal of the existing stone made. He will then inscribe the stone and inform you on completion. We will advise you once the memorial has been completed and we will arrange for it to be fixed into position, this relies on the weather and ground conditions.
