We deliver & fix in ALL* areas of mainland UK (excl. N. Ireland).
*If the delivery address is outside of a 150 mile radius of Dunstable and the order is less than £900, a charge of £95 will be added.
We will gladly crate-up and export memorials if your burial site is abroad. You will need to make the shipping arrangements yourself but we are happy to liaise with an agent about timings and prepare your memorial for collection. There is a cost associated with this which depends on the shape and size of your memorial, so contact us for a quote once you have decided what you would like to order.
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.
This depends greatly on the style of memorial you have chosen. We have a minimum size of lettering which we adhere to but all our designs allow enough room for names, dates and a short verse at the minimum. If you have a lot of text you wish to add to a small/cremation memorial then we would advise you avoid heart-shaped headstones and large sandblasted designs. Adding a freestanding block vase to your memorial can be a handy way of adding more inscription space.
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.
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.

5 stars does not do Memorials of Distinction justice. Right from the moment of enquiring for a brochure through to the memorial being fixed into place, their dedicated team could not be more helpful. There is no pressure from any of the sales team. Everything is taken at your own pace when you are ready. Nothing is too much trouble making you feel at ease asking anything regarding the memorial. Their craftsmanship is second to none and they have handled everything for us causing as little distress as possible with such a sensitive matter. I cannot recommend Memorials of Distinction enough.

Many thanks for completing our order so swiftly. I visited the cemetery yesterday and I was so pleased. It is a very special memorial to my parents and looked exactly as I wanted. Thanks again.
