Memorials of Distinction have over 35 years’ experience in stonemasonry and serving the vibrant areas of North, South, East and West London. Our expert team will craft the perfect memorial gravestone for your treasured loved one. We have a wide range of products available, whether you need a full kerbed memorial, cremation plaque or a bespoke headstone.
When planning for a cremation or burial, you need to choose the location first, as sometimes they will have rules and restrictions on what bespoke memorials, grave ornaments and traditional headstones they allow.
As a truly global city, London is a practical location for friends and family wishing to visit a departed loved one via public transport or car. One of the many reasons that London is so loved is that it offers more green space than many other capital cities — 47% of London is green space. Even in built-up central locations you can find a church garden tucked away down a backstreet.
London’s many cemeteries and crematoriums are the final resting places for many famous and prestigious figures.
There are so many crematoriums and cemeteries across the capital that it can be hard to know where to start looking. London offers so much, from religious or non-religious burials and cremations, to locations near the river, steeped in history or modern memorial gardens.
London’s final resting places include ‘The Magnificent Seven’ — seven large cemeteries in London established in the 19th century. Kensal Green Cemetery and Brompton Cemetery number among these famous sites.
We have collected information on London crematoriums and cemeteries from Google Maps and we have set up the interactive map below to help you. The information is on each pin below — just hover over the pins and you will find what you need. It is worth contacting each location you are interested in to visit and find out more.
I would highly recommend this company if you are looking for a headstone. The process of ordering was straight forward, they were efficient & responded quickly. The actual headstone itself is stunning. The craftsmanship in making the angel is outstanding. Very happy.
