How to choose the right memorial for your loved one
When choosing a memorial, it’s important to understand the options available to you depending upon whether it be a Cemetery, Churchyard or Cremation Memorial.
Things to Consider
The siting of your memorial will be taken into account when deciding on the colour, finish and size of your memorial. Cemeteries will have more relaxed regulations, whilst Churchyards generally prefer a more traditional style and colour.
Your memorial maybe a full-sized cemetery memorial with surround, a headstone, cremation plaque or vase. We will be able to assist you in finding the perfect size and style to suit the location of your lasting tribute.
The natural surroundings of your memorial will reflect upon the maintenance needed. Granite is non-porous so will require minimal cleaning. If you do prefer a traditional stone, this will weather and quickly blend into the surroundings of an old churchyard.
