Some things to consider before making your choice
Churchyards and cemeteries have regulations which govern the size of memorials as well as the materials and designs. Please do speak to us for advice on the specific regulations of your cemetery.
Our brochure gives examples of granites, marble and other natural stones. Each of these materials has individual characteristics which are important to know before making your choice. For example; Granite will weather better over time than sandstone, marble may stain easily especially in certain circumstances, some granites are more porous than others and will become darker when wet etc. We can offer guidance onall of these materials and their suitability to your need.
You will see different examples of lettering as you read through the pages. The use of gold leaf for the inscription is common however painted letters, raised bronze letters and flush lead may also be considered in certain situations. Again our advice will ensure that you are fully informed on the choices available to you.
Understanding the maintenance requirements of different materials may help you make the right choice at the beginning of the process as well as ensuring that your memorial stays in the best possible condition over the coming years. Please do ask us about this aspect of your memorial.
