Chippings, Cover Slabs and Soil: The central area of a kerbed memorial can be filled with soil, chippings or a stone cover slab. These need to be ordered separately and are not included in the price above, unless otherwise stated.
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 outside of a 100 mile radius of our Dunstable workshop and the basic memorial price is under £1200. In this case a charge of £180 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
We can not recommend Memorials of Distinction highly enough. As a family we wanted to order two memorials for two cemetery family plots, this could have been very stressful. From the moment of making the initial phone call to book an appointment at the Dunstable branch to completion of the memorials, the staff were very polite, friendly and helpful with a good knowledge to advise on how the end product would look. This was all during the COVID pandemic and although there was a delay at the docks on the material being delivered we were constantly kept updated with the progress. Now the memorials have been placed we could not be more pleased with the quality of the workmanship and without doubt would certainly recommend this company. Many thanks to all staff involved.

Wonderful company, service exceptional whole team friendly and informative throughout, every detail attended to promptly. My wife and I, could not have picked a more understanding and compassionate company as Memorials of Distinction. My son’s headstone is all that we expected. A very big 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.
