A memorial stone is not just a marker that is erected over a grave, it is a lasting symbol of remembrance: a way of paying tribute to a life now ended.
We can arrange for new headstones and crematorium memorials. Existing memorials can be cleaned and extra inscriptions in the same style can be added. Please contact us for more details.
A member of our caring team will help in arranging the interment or scattering of ashes, as soon as possible, or after a period of reflection and consideration. We can provide an urn or casket for interment in Cemetery, Churchyard or Crematorium Garden.
We are happy to arrange these for you via local florists who will be pleased to help you choose from a variety of different styles, individual designs, and seasonal flowers to suit your own personal taste.
