Cremation Memorial FAQs
How Do I Choose A Cremation Memorial?
With such a variety of cremation memorials to choose from, we appreciate that it can be difficult knowing where to start.
Many of our customers find that requesting to download our brochure is a great place to start as this provides plenty of cremation memorial styles, materials, and examples to help narrow down your memorial search.
Browsing cremation memorials at your local cemetery and online, or simply booking an appointment to speak through your options in detail with one of our advisors and to view them in person will also help you come to a suitable decision when considering your cremation memorial options.
What Types of Cremation Memorials Do You Offer?
Our highly skilled memorial masons are able to craft any type of cremation memorial in a wide range of different materials and engraved or etched finishes.
Popular cremation memorial types include books, scrolls, desks, hearts, raised desks, and tablets.
You are welcome to present us with an example of a cremation memorial type that you have seen and we would be able to craft that particular design for you.
What Should I Look For When Choosing A Memorial Stonemason?
It is important to do your due diligence when searching for a reputable memorial stonemason company.
We would suggest that you research their monumental stonemasonry experience, accreditations, craftsmanship, quality of product, and knowledge of the specific cemetery you are purchasing a cremation memorial for. You want to feel confident and trusting in their masonry ability, as well as comfortable on a personal level – you can gauge this during your initial meets with their family advisors.
Furthermore, you will be expected to pay a deposit when you place your order, meaning it’s vital that you have complete confidence in the memorial stonemasons ability to complete the memorial in your local memorial ground and remain in business so that you don’t end up in the unfortunate position of losing your deposit.
Choosing to go direct to an experienced and well established memorial mason rather than through an agent (such as a funeral director or other middle provider) will also allow you to communicate directly with the masons who are carving your memorial and may potentially help you avoid any additional costs that may have otherwise been involved, such as commissions or extra charges a “middle-party” may apply.
Ultimately, you will benefit from peace of mind by choosing a long established memorial stonemason with a strong reputation.
Can You Help Me Choose A Cremation Memorial?
We can certainly go through your options in great detail to help you reach a decision on which cremation memorial type you should choose. We can highlight the benefits of different materials, show you a variety of styles that meet your requirements, and discuss the range of colours and detailing options that are available for each particular cremation memorial.
With engraving, fine etching and even bespoke Swarovski crystal designs available to beautifully finish the cremation memorial, there are certainly plenty of options that we can discuss with you.
What Is The Best Material For A Cremation Memorial?
The best material to use depends on your choice of cremation memorial, the lettering, carving requirements, colour, tone, texture, and location. We offer all of the popular cremation memorial materials that you’d expect from any memorial stonemason, including granite, slate, limestone, york stone, and more.
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.
Can I Choose A Cremation Memorial That Isn’t In Your Brochure?
In the vast majority of cases the answer is yes. Our memorial stonemasons are very experienced and highly skilled, so we are able to meet bespoke requirements and recreate any cremation memorial design. Simply provide us with an image and/or an idea of what you are looking for, and we will do our very best to help.
How Long Does It Take For A Cremation Memorial To Be Made?
The design and creation of a cremation memorial, inscription and any intricate design additions is a highly skilled process, so we can expect it to take some time before the cremation memorial is complete following the order – certainly several weeks, and perhaps months.
The timeframe will also depend on the current supply and demand of your chosen stone material – something that is often out of our control – so for a more accurate answer you will be best served by asking for an up-to-date estimated lead time at the time of order. We will always be transparent and will do our very best to provide you with a wait time that is as accurate as possible.
Can I Add Something To An Existing Cremation Memorial?
Yes, you can certainly add something to an existing cremation memorial provided there is adequate space available. This could be a special design or etching, or an additional inscription or change of font. Whatever it may be, we can discuss your requirements and confirm what cremation memorial amendments can be carried out and what we can do to achieve it.
What Is The Average Cost Of A Cremation Memorial?
It’s extremely difficult to state an average cost of a cremation memorial. This is because each cremation memorial is unique, and the cost will vary based on the material, cremation memorial type, and any bespoke additions that you would like included. For an accurate quote, we would advise you contact a representative so that we can take the specific details you require beforehand.
One thing we can confirm upfront is our price promise – we are confident that our prices are the most competitive around and offer a discount should a customer find the same quality product elsewhere, so long as it’s supplied by a recognised and reputable memorial mason or funeral director.
Can I Pre-Order A Cremation Memorial?
Yes, you can make prior arrangements for the purchase of any cremation memorial type so that your wishes, or those of a loved one, are carried out exactly as requested. Many people choose their cremation memorial in advance to lighten the burden that is placed on children, family members and close friends once they have passed.
Do You Offer A Guarantee?
Yes, all our cremation memorials along with any other type of memorial is sold with our unbeatable 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 with over 200 years industry experience having first established ourselves way back in 1821.
Can I See Proofs Of The Cremation Memorial First?
We can send you several proofs depicting how the cremation memorial will look like before proceeding with the creation. If you don’t approve of the design, we can re-work the layout or style to meet your needs.
Do You Ship Cremation Memorial Orders Overseas?
We can and have shipped memorials overseas many times, but you must be aware that there are of course additional costs incurred with overseas shipping, such as specialist packaging, insurance, and duty.
