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.
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.
Granite headstones, especially with a polished finish, are easy to maintain by cleaning with a soft, damp cloth. At Memorials of Distinction, we offer a bespoke cleaning and restoration service to keep your granite headstone in excellent condition.
What a great company to deal with, very professional and helpful, they have just refurbished my parents headstone for me, very pleased with the result and I would recommend this Company to anyone looking for a friendly and helpful service.
This was a renovation at Woodwells Cemetery, Hemel Hempstead, Herts.

We would just like to say how pleased we are with the Headstone, it is more that we imagined and its wonderful.
Many thanks to all who were involved with the works carried out.
Best wishes and kind regards,
On behalf of the whole family.

Went to see headstone. Love it. I did look around before I ordered it, and I still think there is nothing like it in the whole cemetery. Looks very classy with the silver lettering. Please pass on my thanks to those involved. Also, whoever erected it was very considerate to what was already there and replaced items respectfully. Already recommended your company to a lady who saw it and hasn’t had hers done yet. Thank you!
This was a custom memorial.
