Burial

The size, shape, type of stone and layout of words on a memorial on a burial plot can vary immensely. Most churchyards have strict rules regarding what will be permitted, and we recommend that you ask us for advice on this before you make your selection.  Municipal cemeteries are somewhat more flexible and accommodating.

The selection below is a very small part of a large range that we can supply.  We have brochures in our office displaying memorials of many varieties, as well as stone samples and some full size memorials on display.  We have also had bespoke memorials crafted from customer’s specific drawings.

You may find it helpful to visit our offices and look at some of the sample memorials on display. We also have samples of different stone colours which may help you in your decision-making. Please note that colours may vary due to granite being
a natural substance and samples are provided for guidance only. Alternative styles of memorial are also available to those
illustrated. Please contact us to make an appointment if you would like to sit down and discuss your requirements with us.

Please be advised that due to the need for the ground to settle, a memorial on a burial grave cannot be fixed until six months after the burial.
