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.
This very much depends on the size and material of your chosen headstone. We have memorial stones to suit every budget. If you take a look at our Value Memorials range you will see that they start as low as £680 and go up to many thousands for large custom memorials with lots of extras. If you are keen to keep costs low, it is best to choose a simple shape in black granite and use your free 80 letter allowance for the inscription. Optional extras like photo plaques, statues and other decorative items create a more personalised memorial.
It is often the case that a couple will want to be interred in the same place. When this is the case we will lay out the lettering, designs and photos on your chosen memorial so that it leaves space for an additional inscription of similar size. A book memorial or triple heart is a great way to achieve this.
The photograph you choose should be clear and preferably of a high print quality. We can remove backgrounds and other people from the photo if necessary. Try to choose a photo which is not blurred or damaged in any way.
Consider whether the photo would best suit a landscape (horizontal) or portrait (vertical) photo plaque. In some cases your choice is restricted by the size/shape of your stone and the quantity of inscription text, if you are unsure please contact our staff and they will advise you.
For more detailed information about the format and size of photos, see our downloadable guide.
May I take the opportunity to commend all those involved for their excellent workmanship in producing a beautiful memorial. I also wish to thank those involved for their guidance, advice and tolerance. With all my thanks.

A very big thank you to everybody involved in getting my sister’s plaque in place before the first anniversary of her burial, it will mean so much to her children.
Your help throughout has been wonderful especially with problems encountered with the local council with delay after delay – every time I called you were very helpful.

I have been sent a photo of my son/husbands headstone that has been put on earlier today. I would just like to say thank you so much. It is more beautiful than I expected and we are so pleased with it. Everyone has been so helpful and professional. Thank you so much.
