I have seen a memorial elsewhere can you help?
Of course, if you would like to bring in or email a picture of the memorial you like we would be more than happy to supply a quote for it.

Don’t worry we will supply you a proof layout of your supplied inscription and no work would commence on the memorial until approved by yourselves.
Q Can you do etchings or special designs?
We can supply a range of sandblasted designs, shaded or monotone also lasered or hand etched designs from your supplied pictures.
Q How soon can I have my memorial installed?
This all depends on the type of memorial you purchased and the regulations of the cemetery/churchyard, as a general rule of thumb. Lawn memorials can usually be installed after 6 months, or straight away if a concrete raft is present. Traditional full kerb memorials are usually allowed after 12 months. We can advise you on this.

This all depends on the type of grave you purchased. Individual cemeteries and Churchyards have their own sets of regulations, we will liaise with the authorities finding out the exact requirements for you.

No, installation using a Namm approved ground anchor on lawn memorials is included and traditional memorials are all installed to Namm standards
Q What is a Namm ground anchor?
A method of securing the memorial into the ground to prevent it from falling
