The carved book is a popular design across many of our headstones, and on this one it forms the main shape. In polished light grey granite with a natural finish, the book is elevated by step rests and has room for an additional inscription at the base, as well as two vases.
As standard all of our memorials include the following:
Please contact us by email or telephone and our advisors will be happy to help. You can also add your favourite products to a shortlist and send them to us for a quote. We can assist with all aspects of your order; from liaising with the cemetery, choosing the right memorial and inscription, adding bespoke etchings, memorial photo plaques and other grave decorations.
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 unless the delivery address is more than 150 miles from our Dunstable workshop and the order is less than £900, in which case a charge of £95 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
Thank you so much for the wonderful stone. I am so pleased with it, even if its something I never expected to have to buy. I had dreaded the process and it’s taken me six years to do it, thank you so much for all your help and patience. I really appreciate it.

I would like to thank you for the effiient 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.

Good evening. I found Harvey’s headstone on Friday morning. I cried so many tears. But the headstone is absolutely amazing. I’m blown away by the details of the stars. It’s an absolutely outstanding tribute to my beautiful boy.
Well done to those who made it.
