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.

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.

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.

We are very pleased with the service that Memorials of Distinction provided, especially at a difficult time when it was not always easy to think clearly. We appreciate your patience and help throughout. The memorial looks even better than I imagined, especially the etching. Thank you for all your help.
This was a bespoke memorial.
