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 just wanted to offer my thanks to you all for the lovely work that went into the memorial stone I ordered for my parents, it looks so much better than I ever thought it could. The whole process was made so easy for me, both in written and telephone correspondence. Please relay my thanks to everyone. I am very, very pleased and will definitely be recommending Memorials of Distinction in the future.

Went to see headstone. Love it. I did look around before I ordered it, and I still think there is nothing like it in the whole cemetery. Looks very classy with the silver lettering. Please pass on my thanks to those involved. Also, whoever erected it was very considerate to what was already there and replaced items respectfully. Already recommended your company to a lady who saw it and hasn’t had hers done yet. Thank you!
This was a custom memorial.
