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 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.

I can’t thank Memorials of Distinction enough for producing such a beautiful headstone. It was everything and more, that I had asked for. Everyone in the family was very happy and impressed. So thank you again for that miracle.
Lesley, you personally were so kind and understanding throughout the whole process, I’m convinced you may have wings.

I have seen the memorial and it is an excellent quality piece of work. It is exactly what we wanted and I would like to thank everyone for the kind and considerate way they have dealt with me throughout this process.
