The central area of a Kerbed Memorial can be filled with soil, plants, chippings or a stone coverslab. Step styles are also available such as in the GF133 Winding Path Memorial. Coloured glass & stone chippings are the perfect way to enhance kerbed memorials – they create an undeniably striking effect while remaining very simple to care for. They come in a wide range of colours so that you can truly personalise your kerbed memorial to reflect the personality of your loved one.
Our Memorial Coloured Glass & Stone Chippings come in a wide range of colours, from grass green to muted shades of white and light grey, to striking turquoise, cobalt and lilac. Below are examples of our most popular colours but many others are available on request. Just give us a call for advice and prices.
Note: availability of some colours is limited so please check with our staff when you order.
Kerbed memorials include a line of stone which forms a rectangular edge covering the whole grave. This space can be topped with a solid slab of matching or contrasting stone and is called a cover slab. See some examples below.
Kerbs are a line of stone which forms a rectangular edge covering the whole grave. This is usually made from the same stone as the headstone but can be changed for a contrasting material if preferred. The centre area can be filled with coloured glass chippings, soil or a cover slab according to your taste.
Yes, if you wanted to fill the kerbs with soil and plants or buy your own chippings, we can leave this area empty.
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.
I wanted to thank Memorials of Distinction for providing a very efficient, professional and friendly service which was also extremely quick. My Mother & Father’s memorial was booked and then the lockdown occurred and even through this the Headstone was still erected the company strived to get any outstanding orders finalised before everything shut – your crew also kindly took photographs of the memorial so we could see it or though could not visit at that time and this little extra touch made a huge difference. The memorial is just as ordered and a fitting tribute to my parents.

You made a difficult occasion and one done via e-mail very easy, dealing with all our special requests stone, colour, design etc. Communication and requests were always clear and your response to any queries always helpful, supportive and timely. The headstone is in place as advised and it looks beautiful.
