One of our knowledgeable staff will visit you in the comfort and privacy of your home to help you to choose a design, decide on an appropriate wording and answer any other questions you may have.
Any administration or correspondence with local authorities, cemeteries or church authorities is dealt with by Memorials of Distinction on your behalf – you will not have to worry about this aspect of the process either.
We will give you a detailed quote on the day and if you decide to go ahead you can pay a deposit to secure your order. If you would like more time to consider your decision then we will leave you with all the information you need. We will only contact you once to follow up so there is no need to worry about pushy sales calls or emails.
Note: this home visit service is only available to customers within certain radius of our head office, please call to confirm whether we can travel to your location.

Home Visit Service
This service has now been resumed. Please call for an appointment if you would like someone to visit you at home to discuss your memorial requirements.
If the particular shape or style of memorial you would like is not in our standard collection, we will be happy to work with you to create something bespoke. Whether it is just swapping one type of vase or grave statue for another or creating a whole new design, we have the expertise to guide you through it. Call or email us to discuss in more detail or use our Live Chat feature on the bottom right of your screen.
The ground requires time to settle after a burial so it is important to wait before installing your memorial. A headstone can usually be erected on a grave six months after the last burial has taken place but a period of 1 year is most common. If cremated remains are interred in a grave, a headstone may be fixed after 3-6 months, as the ground requires less settling time but this can vary. If you tell us which cemetery/crematorium your memorial will be installed in, we can find out the specific rules for you and advise accordingly.
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.

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. The headstone is absolutely perfect and what a fantastic job the workmen did erecting it. To say I am pleased with it is an understatement.
Many many thanks.

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.
