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.
The letters for your inscription can be simply cut into the stone and left plain or they can be painted black, white, silver or gilded with gold leaf. They are all equally resillient to the weather but conditions will vary from location to location so the colour chosen should be based simply on personal choice. It is also worth noting that lettering which is placed on flat surfaces (ie on the top of a headstone base) will weather more quickly than those on the face of the headstone.
You are welcome to drop by and see us if you happen to be in the area but we prefer customers to make an appointment if possible. That way we can make sure there is a member of staff available to help you for as long as you need.
Standard overall height for most memorials are 2ft 6″ or 3ft but we can customise our designs to whatever size or material you need, subject to availability and approval by the cemetery.
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.

I was recommended to Memorial of Distinction by my late wife’s niece and throughout a very sensitive time in my life I found them to be exceptional. They were sensitive to my needs and kept me informed at all times, the workmanship was outstanding, and the attention to detail was second to none. An outstanding company to deal with, when you have to do something you really don’t want to do.

I would like to thank you for the efficient and friendly way in which you have dealt with the order. I have been to the cemetery and the memorial looks absolutely beautiful. If my family are looking down, they would be very proud of my legacy to them. Thank you once again for all your help.
