What a great company to deal with. From ordering to the installation they have been clear and true to their word all the way through. We initially thought it would make more sense to sort through a local company as Memorials of Distinction are a couple of hours away from where we live. However we soon realised after talking to them that that this was not a problem and it was so easy to deal with them with email updates followed by receipts by post. Would not hesitate to recommend them.

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 can’t thank Memorials of Distinction enough for producing such a beautiful headstone. It was everything and more, that I had asked for. Everyone in the family was very happy and impressed. So thank you again for that miracle.
Lesley, you personally were so kind and understanding throughout the whole process, I’m convinced you may have wings.
