A very easy process from start to installation of the memorial. The contact with the staff was easy and the design work was simple to perform to get the perfect wording.
The headstone was delivered and erected earlier than expected. The workmanship is amazing, the headstone is perfect.
Considering this work was carried out with Covid restrictions in place it was a simple process to get the perfect memorial for my family.
I cannot recommend Memorials of Distinction enough, this was definitely a Five Star Service!
Our grateful thanks to all involved.

It’s the little things that matter. Every member of staff that I had the pleasure to speak to far exceeded my expectations. Nothing was too much trouble, and the feeling of never being rushed, added to the overall good experience. We chose a pearl blue granite stone, which looks even better in reality. The finished result, including the cropping of photo to remove a hand and arm proved to be an excellent final touch, something we didn’t expect at all. So to say we are pleased with the overall service would be an understatement. MOD and the extended team provided an excellent service, and would highly recommend them.

Thank you for your email. I have been down to the Cemetery this afternoon to see the Memorial. It is always difficult to imagine what something will look like from a picture, but I have to say it looks beautiful and I know my Mum and Dad would have approved of my choice.
Once again I wish to thank you and all your staff for your help, assistance and advice.
