Frequently Asked Questions

Is there space for a photo?

Most of our memorials will be able to fit a photo plaque but this very much depends on two things: 1) the size of memorial you have chosen and 2) the quantity of inscription text you wish to add. We will be able to advise on this before you place your order and if necessary show you a mock-up to confirm the fit. As a guide, the standard photo plaque is an 10cm x 8cm oval.

Do we need to make an appointment to visit your showroom?

Yes, showroom visits are by appointment only, on Thursdays and Saturdays. This is to ensure there is a member of staff available to help you for as long as you need. Please call our office on 01582 249990 to arrange a suitable time and date.
