We can change the size, material, paint colours, letter style, vases, sandblasted designs or even create a totally bespoke shape for you. Please note that cemeteries and churchyards often have restrictions on things like size and colour but our experienced staff will be able to advise you accordingly.

Once we have confirmed the final price we will ask for a 20% deposit in order to proceed with the order. For more details about payment and timescales please see our ‘Ordering and Timescales’ page or our FAQs.
Lettering: The first 80 letters is free. Each letter/character beyond that (cut & gold leaf or painted black/silver/white) costs £1.95 on a new memorial in Granite, Marble, Portland Stone or Nabresina. Contact us for a quote if you require lead lettering. If you wish to add lettering to an existing memorial this needs to be quoted for on a case by case basis. For more information, please read our Useful Guide on the cost of adding an inscription to a headstone.
Burial Ground Fee: These are the fees charged by cemeteries and crematoria. They are not a standard price but if you contact us with the grave location details we will be able to find out for you. Or, if you prefer, you could call the cemetery or crematoria directly for this information.
We deliver & fix in all areas of mainland UK (excl. N. Ireland).
Delivery is included in the cost of your memorial except where the delivery address is more than 100 miles from our Dunstable workshop and the basic memorial price is under £1200, in which case a charge of £120 will be added.

So happy I decided to go with Memorials of Distinction. They were very patient and understanding. I had a lot of help from Natalie and the process was extremely smooth. Even though it was busy because I made my order during covid times, my headstone was still done within the expected time frame. Headstone is lovely and the quality looks absolutely perfect. Thank you.

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.
