The wait is over, and it was well worth every second. Memorials of Distinction delivered more than what the doctor ordered. Splendid piece of work. Art at its best. The whole extended family is impressed. I am sure my wife Engie in heaven is equally proud and happy of the finished product…talk of paying attention to detail. That’s what Engie was about. Well done and thank you guys.

We are beyond pleased with the memorial. It looks even better in situ, than we could have ever imagined from the pictures and drafts. We would highly recommend Memorials of Distinction.
The sales team provided an amazing online service from initial enquiry, through to aftercare. The communication was amazing, keeping us informed step by step of the process and double checking every detail was just as we wished. Any queries were responded to quickly and we feel confident that any further aftercare requests will also be responded to swiftly.
The memorial itself was installed within the specified timescales and carried out with obvious care and dignity. The area was left spotlessly clean and tidy with meticulous detail to edge the area and present the stone in a clean and tailored fashion. It was abundantly clear there was real pride in the work undertaken. They even uncovered some items that had been lost within the grass and respectfully placed them onto the grave afterwards.
We are overwhelmed with how amazing the memorial looks in person and the service we received. It took us many years to undertake this part, for many reasons. We are so pleased to finally have the memorial in place and we shall be forever grateful for making this difficult part of losing a loved one a very positive one.

I appreciated how well all the staff treated my order and managed my emotions, from start to finish. No matter what member of the service I spoke with, or communicated via email, was reasuring, and provided sound advice.

Memorials of Distinction is a friendly, long-established, family run business and the ideal stonemason to entrust with the important job of creating the perfect and most fitting tribute for your departed loved one following a burial or cremation.
We will help you to choose or design the most suitable headstone, memorial or gravestone, from our large selection of premium quality granite headstones and designs, using the most up to date techniques. We offer extra additions such as marble statues, memorial flower vases and graveside ornaments to add a truly personal touch without going for a fully bespoke memorial design.
Our caring, expert service and workmanship are second to none and are guaranteed accordingly and we can assure you that we are able to offer all this at very reasonable prices.
Whether your requirements are for a cemetery, churchyard, crematorium, garden, a family pet or export, please do not hesitate to ask for our advice or visit our UK showrooms in London and Dunstable, Bedfordshire.
The items included will be clearly explained in the description text for each product along with the ‘Included in the Price’ section. We also have an ‘Additional Costs’ section on all products where it is relevant. As a general guide, extra costs can include: Cemetery fees, additional sandblasted designs, photo plaques, extra letters (beyond the 80 you get free), bespoke sizes, kerbset chippings etc. We will give you a detailed quote showing all fees and itemised costs, so you know exactly what the bottom line is before placing your order.
If the particular shape or style of memorial you would like is not in our standard collection, we will be happy to work with you to create something bespoke. Whether it is just swapping one type of vase or grave statue for another or creating a whole new design, we have the expertise to guide you through it. Call or email us to discuss in more detail or use our Live Chat feature on the bottom right of your screen.
Yes, showroom visits are by appointment only, on Thursdays and Saturdays. This is to ensure there is a member of staff available to help you for as long as you need. Please call our office on 01582 249990 to arrange a suitable time and date.
