This stunning memorial is made from two different types of granite to give a beautiful two tone effect around the cut-out heart shape. It lends itself particularly well to having two inscriptions, one each side with extra space on the splayed base below for a verse or further dedications.
The photo shows the headstone with silver lettering and an optional portrait etching. You can choose to use gold lettering and vase pots instead if you wish, our staff can talk you through the options.
This memorial comes with:

I have no bad words to say about Memorials of Distinction. From the beginning they were extremely helpful as I had no idea where to start. The beautiful work on the memory stone is just incredible and I couldn’t have wished for something more unique. Thank you for your brilliant customer service. Highly recommend.

We are beyond pleased with the memorial. It looks even better in situ, than we could have ever imagined from the pictures and drafts. We would highly recommend Memorials of Distinction.
The sales team provided an amazing online service from initial enquiry, through to aftercare. The communication was amazing, keeping us informed step by step of the process and double checking every detail was just as we wished. Any queries were responded to quickly and we feel confident that any further aftercare requests will also be responded to swiftly.
The memorial itself was installed within the specified timescales and carried out with obvious care and dignity. The area was left spotlessly clean and tidy with meticulous detail to edge the area and present the stone in a clean and tailored fashion. It was abundantly clear there was real pride in the work undertaken. They even uncovered some items that had been lost within the grass and respectfully placed them onto the grave afterwards.
We are overwhelmed with how amazing the memorial looks in person and the service we received. It took us many years to undertake this part, for many reasons. We are so pleased to finally have the memorial in place and we shall be forever grateful for making this difficult part of losing a loved one a very positive one.
