Memorials of Distinction have over 35 years’ experience in stonemasonry and serving the beautiful area of Cambridgeshire. Our expert team will work with you to craft elegant gravestones for your departed loved ones, whether it be a kerb set for graves, cremation memorial plaque or a bespoke memorial. We have a wide range of products available to ensure you have the perfect tribute.
If you are planning for a cremation or burial, it is often best to choose the location first, as there are often rules and regulations on which custom memorials, grave ornaments and traditional headstones cemeteries and crematoriums allow.
Cambridgeshire is often said to follow a slower pace of life, due to its long country walks and selection of quaint villages. If you are searching for a peaceful place full of countryside scenery, then Cambridgeshire could be a perfect option for a final resting place.
It is also important to select a location that is easily accessible for family and friends to visit. Cambridgeshire certainly has plenty of good transport links, either by train or by the M11 leading to London.
With a vast number of cemeteries and crematoriums within Cambridgeshire, it can be difficult to make a final decision for a suitable place for your loved one. To simplify the process we have put information on each crematorium and cemetery from Google Maps into an interactive map below, so you can find what you need quickly and easily. Just hover over a pin to view contact details and further information for that location.
Memorials of Distinction believe that purchasing a memorial headstone is such an important decision that it is not suited to an on-line ‘add to my basket’ type of purchase. There are also many variables in the process which will affect your order, for example what is allowed by your particular cemetery and whether your inscription will fit on the memorial you have chosen.
It is possible to order over the phone or by email using the details on our Contact Page where our staff will be able to help and advise you.
We also offer a home visit service which is completely free of charge and obligation. One of our knowledgeable staff will visit you in the comfort and privacy of your home to help you to choose a design, decide on an appropriate wording and answer any other questions you may have.
Any administration or correspondence with local authorities, cemeteries or church authorities is dealt with by Memorials of Distinction on your behalf – you will not have to worry about this aspect of the process.
Yes, this is possible but will depend on the regulations at your cemetery. We will be able to check this and advise further when we do your quotation. All memorials need to have an approved permit from the cemetery before we begin to manufacture them.
Yes, we can put a small graveside surround called ‘Garden Kerbs’ around any headstone, providing the cemetery gives permission. We will be able to advise you on this and apply for a permit on your behalf.
Thank you it’s perfect and put in place sooner than I expected which is brilliant as it’s his birthday next week. I will recommend your company to anyone I know who has to get a headstone.

Thank you so much for the wonderful stone. I am so pleased with it, even if its something I never expected to have to buy. I had dreaded the process and it’s taken me six years to do it, thank you so much for all your help and patience. I really appreciate it.

I was recommended to Memorial of Distinction by my late wife’s niece and throughout a very sensitive time in my life I found them to be exceptional. They were sensitive to my needs and kept me informed at all times, the workmanship was outstanding, and the attention to detail was second to none. An outstanding company to deal with, when you have to do something you really don’t want to do.
