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.
Standard overall height for most memorials are 2ft 6″ or 3ft but we can customise our designs to whatever size or material you need, subject to availability and approval by the cemetery.
Yes, we are able to reduce the size of most memorials in our collection. If this is not possible due to a particularly intricate memorial style, we would be able to suggest something similar to achieve the effect you are after.
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.
I would like to thank you for the efficient and friendly way in which you have dealt with the order. I have been to the cemetery and the memorial looks absolutely beautiful. If my family are looking down, they would be very proud of my legacy to them. Thank you once again for all your help.
