Memorialisation

Memorialisation is a time honoured tradition practiced by bereaved and caring people throughout the centuries. Buying a memorial is a task you may do only once in your lifetime. Often it will be a shared memorial. You will be purchasing a product that will last through the ages to commemorate the life of someone whom you love dearly and often for someone very special such as yourself.

Many people through personal experience have expressed the importance of having a memorial as a focus point and a point to visit in the resolution of family grief. Designing a memorial and contributing to that special inscription can help to complete the mourning process. Artwork and lettering for new headstones is a matter of personal choice and we can guide you in the choice of inscription and to help you get a good idea of the finished projects, 3D Graphic replications of projects are available.

Additional inscriptions on existing headstones can be made in the same style of lettering as the original and this is often an opportunity to revitalise the headstone and the grave site. Prices vary depending on the amount of work requested.
