Memorials of Distinction have over 35 years’ experience in stonemasonry and serving the beautiful area of Northamptonshire. Our expert team will craft the perfect memorial gravestone for your loved one, whether it be a kerb set for graves, cremation memorial plaque or a custom headstone. We have a wide range of products available to ensure you have a fitting tribute.
Northamptonshire, which is often referred to as the ‘rose of the shires’, contains a range of lovely locations for a final resting place. There are plenty of green spaces and woodland walks, which help to create a peaceful, reflective space. Northamptonshire is home to many picturesque villages, which make a perfect place to walk after visiting the cemetery or crematorium.
The county, nestled in the Midlands, offers plenty of public transport routes into London, along with access to motorways. This makes it an easy location for family and friends to visit.
It is important to choose a final resting place before selecting your memorial tribute. This is because many cemeteries often have regulations over which types of bespoke memorials, grave ornaments and traditional headstones are permitted.
Across Northamptonshire, there is a wide choice of both crematoriums and cemeteries, so choosing the right final resting place for a loved one can be a challenging task. To help support you through this decision, we have created an interactive map, which provides contact details for surrounding crematoriums and cemeteries. Simply hover over a pin to view the information.
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.
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.
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.
Good evening. I found Harvey’s headstone on Friday morning. I cried so many tears. But the headstone is absolutely amazing. I’m blown away by the details of the stars. It’s an absolutely outstanding tribute to my beautiful boy.
Well done to those who made it.

I wanted to thank Memorials of Distinction for providing a very efficient, professional and friendly service which was also extremely quick. My Mother & Father’s memorial was booked and then the lockdown occurred and even through this the Headstone was still erected the company strived to get any outstanding orders finalised before everything shut – your crew also kindly took photographs of the memorial so we could see it or though could not visit at that time and this little extra touch made a huge difference. The memorial is just as ordered and a fitting tribute to my parents.
