This memorial features a beautiful hand-etched portrait along with sandblasted and painted roses. There is plenty of space for your inscription both on the headstone itself and on the splayed base, two flower vases are also included. This memorial is shown with gold vase pots and gold writing but these can be swapped for silver if you prefer. We have made this memorial from 4" thick granite for added presence.
The portrait is hand-etched by one of our artists and would be based on a photo of your choosing. The price shown is for a single person portrait etching, extra costs apply for multiple people.
The image also shows the memorial with an optional SD22 sandblased 'Dove of Peace' design.
Note that the material can be swapped for a different colour granite if you prefer, contact us for a quote.

Highly recommend Memorials Of Distinction I lost my husband 8 months ago and enquired about a stone and vase for him and all the staff showed compassion, understanding my requirements and also answered any questions and queries that I asked. Very professional and excellent service from my enquiry even to now with my husbands stone being laid. Very reasonable priced and always kept in touch with me with an update on the progress of the order! Fantastic company and would always recommend to family and friends, and I would like to say thank you for completing the stone and I’m so happy with the final product and looks high quality finish and wording! Thank you to each and everyone who has helped me and knowing that any questions you’re there to help!
