Cremation Memorial Materials And Colours
Each cremation memorial material has its unique benefits – be it aesthetic appeal, durability, or minimal maintenance that is required.
Please note that these material and colour examples should be used as a guide only.
The high quality materials that we use are naturally sourced materials, therefore we can expect each cremation memorial to be unique with a colour, shade and pattern that slightly differs to the next.

Cremation Memorial FAQs
How Do I Choose A Cremation Memorial?
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?
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?
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.

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?
How Long Should I Wait Before Getting A Cremation Memorial?
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?
How Long Does It Take For A Cremation Memorial To Be Made?
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.

What Is The Average Cost Of A Cremation Memorial?
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.
