For thousands of years mankind has felt the need to erect a memorial to mark the sense of loss, love and respect felt for a family member or friend. It provides a focal point of affection and remembrance as a celebration of a much cherished individual life. It is a statement of not being forgotten. It can be an expression of undying love and a help in the grieving process through which we are all likely to go at some point in our lives.
There is a wide range of choice both in product and price. As a result, we hope that you will be able to find a memorial that you feel is appropriate in this setting and at a price which you feel comfortable with. Please do not hesitate to approach a member of our staff if there is anything which you would like to know more about or simply discuss. They are there to be of assistance to you.
Our staff are not only at your service to select a fitting memorial, if you require them to do so; but they will also assist you with the necessary paperwork, and make you aware of the terms, conditions and general regulations. They can do this on the site, over the phone, via email, by sending information to you in the post or by visiting you at home. The choice is yours.
Some people may not want to return to the crematorium but still wish to have a fitting tribute to the memory of their loved one in the familiar surrounds of their own home and often where the memories of that person are felt the strongest.
Many of the below options have variations and can be tailored to personal taste. Moreover, we can supply any of the below products and arrange their fitting to any area of the United Kingdom in private addresses, crematoria, cemeteries or churchyards subject to local restrictions and regulations. Please contact us for a personal written quotation.
Garden & Lake Marker
Garden & Lake Markers markers are carved from local stone or from a range of granites from UK quarries. The stone is bored out to allow the incorporation of the cremated remains and are capped with a bronze dedication plate. These may either sit in the water at the edge of the lake or on the path by the lake.
Lakeside Memorial Wall Recess
For those who would prefer their loved ones cremated remains not to be interred, Lakeside wall recesses offer an alternative in a beautiful setting along the path of the lakeside walk. The niches allow for up to two interments to be incorporated into the natural stone wall. A generously sized stone plaque seals the niche and allows personal dedications to be inscribed.
Lakeside Wall Garden Memorial Plots
The hand-built stone wall circle is the central feature of the memorial gardens. The design allows the incorporation of cremated remains to be set in the raised flower garden. The garden is planted with seasonal flowers and the dedication memorial can be either a brass plaque mounted on the jumper stones within the walled garden, or dedication stones, engraved and laid in the interment area. This feature allows for the interment of two sets of cremated remains.
