Cremation Memorials FAQs
What Are Some Helpful Tips For Choosing A Cremation Memorial?
Choosing a cremation memorial can be overwhelming, but there are several things you can do to make the process easier.
One helpful tip is to request a brochure, which can provide you with plenty of styles, materials, and examples to help narrow down your search.
You can also browse cremation memorials at your local cemetery or online, or make an appointment to speak with one of our advisors and view some memorials and stone materials in person.
By exploring your options and discussing them with a professional, you can come to a suitable decision for your cremation memorial.
What Options Do You Have For Cremation Memorials?
We offer a wide range of cremation memorials crafted by our highly skilled memorial masons in various materials and finishes. Some of our popular memorial types include books, scrolls, desks, hearts, raised desks, and tablets. If you have a specific design in mind, you are welcome to present it to us and we will do our best to craft it for you.
What Should I Consider When Choosing a Memorial Stonemason?
Choosing a memorial stonemason is an important decision that requires careful consideration. Here are some key factors to keep in mind:
- Experience: Look for a company with a strong track record in monumental stonemasonry.
- Accreditation: Check if the stonemason is accredited by relevant professional bodies or organisations.
- Craftsmanship: Assess the quality of the stonemason’s previous work to ensure they can deliver a memorial that meets your expectations.
- Knowledge of the Cemetery: Make sure the stonemason has knowledge of the specific cemetery where the memorial will be placed to avoid any issues or conflicts.
- Communication: A good stonemason should be approachable and able to communicate with you effectively. Gauge this during your initial meetings with their family advisors.
- Direct Contact: Consider going directly to an experienced and established memorial mason instead of a middleman, such as a funeral director or agent.
- Deposits and Costs: Ensure that you have complete confidence in the stonemason’s ability to complete the memorial and stay in business to avoid losing your deposit.
- Reputation: Choose a well-established memorial stonemason with a strong reputation to give you peace of mind.
By keeping these factors in mind and doing your research, you can find a reputable and skilled memorial stonemason who can create a fitting tribute for your loved one.

How Do I Choose The Right Material For My Cremation Memorial?
Selecting the ideal material for your cremation memorial will depend on several factors, such as your choice of memorial, desired lettering or carving, preferred colour, texture, tone, and location.
As a reputable memorial stonemason, we offer a wide range of popular materials including granite, slate, limestone, york stone, and more.
Our team can guide you through the selection process and provide recommendations based on your specific requirements.
How Long Should I Wait Before Getting A Cremation Memorial?
The minimum amount of time that you should wait before getting a cremation memorial may be dependent on the cemetery.
Unlike other memorials that may require many months of waiting, cremation memorials can often be installed much sooner. Some cemeteries may even allow cremation memorials to be installed immediately after the plot purchase has been confirmed.
With that said, you may still be well advised to take plenty of time to thoroughly consider the cremation memorial you would like to choose.
There is certainly no rush and you want to ensure you make the best decision with regards to the style, material and any inscription, etching or design additions.
Is It Possible To Select A Cremation Memorial That Isn't Included In Your Brochure?
Yes, in most cases we can accommodate any cremation memorial design request. Our team of skilled memorial stonemasons have a wealth of experience in creating bespoke designs for cremation memorials. We welcome you to share your ideas and images with us, and we will work closely with you to bring your vision to life.
What Is The Typical Timeframe For Creating A Cremation Memorial?
Crafting a cremation memorial requires expertise and precision, and therefore, it can take a significant amount of time to complete. While we strive to complete each order promptly, the actual timeframe may vary depending on the complexity of the design and the availability of the chosen stone material. Typically, the production process may take several weeks to months. To get a more accurate estimate, we recommend asking for an up-to-date lead time at the time of order. We value transparency and will provide you with the most accurate wait time possible.
Is It Possible To Make Additions To An Existing Cremation Memorial?
Certainly, if there is sufficient space available, it is possible to add an extra design, etching or inscription to an existing cremation memorial. We will be happy to discuss your specific requirements and suggest the best course of action to achieve your desired result.
What Is The Typical Cost Of A Cremation Memorial?
Providing an average cost for a cremation memorial is difficult since each memorial is unique and the price varies based on the material, type of memorial, and any custom additions. To get an accurate quote, we recommend contacting one of our representatives and providing us with the specific details. However, we do offer a price promise that ensures our prices are competitive and we provide a discount if you find the same quality product elsewhere from a recognised and reputable memorial mason or funeral director.
Is It Possible To Order A Cremation Memorial In Advance?
Certainly, it is possible to arrange in advance for the purchase of any type of cremation memorial. This allows your specific wishes or those of a loved one to be fulfilled exactly as desired. Planning ahead by choosing a cremation memorial can also ease the burden on family and friends after the passing of a loved one.
Do You Offer A Guarantee With Your Cremation Memorials?
Certainly, all of our cremation memorials as well as any other type of memorial come with our 30-year guarantee.
Do You Hold Any Memorial Accreditation?
Yes, we are BRAMM (British Register of Accredited Memorial Masons) approved, and a registered and fully licensed memorial mason.
Can I View Proofs Of The Cremation Memorial?
We can provide you with proofs of the cremation memorial design for your approval before moving forward with the creation process. If you are not satisfied with the initial design, we can make adjustments to the layout or style to better suit your preferences.
Do You Ship Cremation Memorial Orders Overseas?
We have experience in shipping memorials overseas, but it’s important to note that there are additional expenses involved. These may include specialised packaging, insurance, and taxes or fees.
