If you would like to fill your kerb set with soil then we can supply and install this for you. Soil fillings are great if you wish to plant flowers or bulbs for a longer-lasting floral display than a vase can offer. Visit our Chippings & Coverslabs page to see some alternatives to soil.

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.
We can change the size, material, paint colours, letter style, vases, sandblasted designs...or even create a totally bespoke shape for you. Contact us for more information and a quote.Get in touch
I would just like to say a massive thank you to everyone, especially to the stonemason! We are absolutely delighted with our sons headstone. We’ve waited such a long time to purchase it, but we are thrilled with it! The detail that’s gone into it is just incredible.
Thank you to everyone that I spoke to along the way, everyone was always so helpful and the communication was brilliant. I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone!

Such a good service from start to finish. Clear and courteous instruction on what information was needed from me and kept me informed throughout. Finished memorial stone is perfect and installed without a hitch. Thank you.

What a great company to deal with. From ordering to the installation they have been clear and true to their word all the way through. We initially thought it would make more sense to sort through a local company as Memorials of Distinction are a couple of hours away from where we live. However we soon realised after talking to them that that this was not a problem and it was so easy to deal with them with email updates followed by receipts by post. Would not hesitate to recommend them.
