Memorials of Distinction have over 35 years’ experience in stonemasonry and serving the picturesque area of Surrey, including Camberley, Wokingham and Guildford. Our expert team crafts elegant gravestones and will ensure you have just the right one for your departed loved one, whether it be a full kerbed memorial, cremation plaque or a bespoke headstone. We have a wide range of high-quality products available.
You or your loved one has chosen Surrey for their final resting place, but every cemetery is different and each has its own atmosphere, requirements and prices. When choosing a cemetery, you’ll have to visit and ask them directly about any specific rules before you choose a custom gravestone, traditional headstones or perhaps a memorial photoplaque.
Surrey is very close to London, making transport links easy for visiting friends and family, but it also has a country feel, with lots of green spaces and ancient woodland. In fact, Surrey is the most wooded county in England, so there are lots of tranquil places to go walking after visiting the cemetery or crematorium.
When you have lost a loved one, contacting crematoriums and cemeteries can feel overwhelming. To help you, we have put together an interactive map. All you have to do is hover over a pin to see the contact details — this saves you trawling the internet in search of a telephone number.
There are a number of things you may want to ask the crematorium or cemetery about, so write them down and have these to hand before you call. For example, whether you can purchase a family plot, what headstone styles are allowed and what size headstones are permitted.
There are so many special locations in Surrey — Woking Crematorium has a peaceful lake, Burvale Cemetery offers a traditional lawn and Randalls Park Crematorium has a multi-faith chapel. Take a look below.
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.
Yes. You will need to make the shipping arrangements yourself but we are happy to liaise with an agent about timings and crate up your memorial ready for collection. There is a cost associated with this, so contact us for a quote once you have decided which memorial you would like.
Cemetery or Crematoria fees are not a standard price but if you tell us the grave location details we will be able to find out for you. Alternatively the cemetery would be able to give you the information directly if you prefer to call them yourself.
Once you have placed an order, the process of obtaining a permit is carried out by us on your behalf and is generally straightforward.
Memorials of Distinction was the best choice I made to have a headstone made for my dear grandmother. I appreciated their professionalism, their patience when left to make decisions, their advice when it came to wording and layout and their care during such a difficult time. They are always available for any questions asked and always give a prompt reply. They really made the process very easy, even providing a picture when the headstone was installed. My family and I could not recommend Memorials of Distinction enough and appreciate everything they have done especially during a pandemic. Thank you so much Memorials of Distinction.

Absolutely recommend this company who were recommended to me. Cannot fault them in any way. Everything went smoothly and on time. No complaints at all. My cousin’s used a very well known company for their mother’s headstone and had trouble all the way. If you want perfection, these are the one to use.
