Kerb Set Materials And Colours
Our kerb sets are typically available in granite or marble as these stone materials are robust and well designed to withstand the outside elements.
Both granite and marble stone are ideal materials for kerb sets as they are visually appealing, offer durability, and require minimal maintenance.
Our granite stone materials are available in an extensive range of colours and shades.
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 kerb set to be unique with a colour, shade and pattern that slightly differs to the next.

Kerb Sets FAQs
How Do I Choose A Kerb Set For a Grave?
We understand that the wide range of kerb set styles that are available can make it difficult for people to know where they should begin.
Many of our customers find that requesting to download our brochure is a great place to start as this showcases some of the most popular kerb set styles, materials, and examples which can help narrow down your kerb set search and allow you to better understand which memorial types you prefer.
Browsing grave kerb sets 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 example displays in person will also help you come to a suitable decision when considering your kerb set memorial options.
What Types of Kerb Sets Do You Offer?
Our highly skilled memorial masons are able to craft any type of kerb set for any grave size.
Headstones in a variety of stone materials, colours, and styles, such as hearts, books, curved arches, and more, can be incorporated into the design of any matching full kerb set.
You are welcome to present us with an example of a kerb set type that you have seen and our skilled team of memorial designers and stonemasons 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 kerb set 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 and install the grave kerb set 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 kerb set 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 Kerb Set Memorial?
We can certainly go through your options in great detail to help you reach a decision on which kerb set type you should choose. We can highlight the benefits of different materials, show you a variety of kerb set designs and styles that meet your requirements, and discuss the range of colours and detailing options that are available for each particular kerb set.
With engraving, fine etching, aesthetically appealing border styles, and even bespoke Swarovski crystal designs available to beautifully finish the headstone or foot end of the kerb set, there are certainly plenty of options that we can show and discuss with you.
What Is The Best Material For A Kerb Set?
The best material to use depends on your choice of kerb set, the lettering, carving requirements, colour, tone, texture, and location. We offer all of the popular kerb set materials that you’d expect from any memorial stonemason, including granite, limestone, york stone, and more.
How Long Should I Wait Before Getting A Kerb Set?
The minimum amount of time that you should wait before installing a kerb set may be dependent on the cemetery.
In most cases, you can expect the cemetery or churchyard to request you wait somewhere in the region of 6-12 months, perhaps even longer, before installing a kerb set. This is because the burial plot requires enough time for the ground to fully settle before a headstone or full kerb set can be safely installed on or around the grave.

In any case, you may still be well advised to take plenty of time to thoroughly consider the kerb set 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 Kerb Set 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 kerb set design for any grave dimensions. 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 Kerb Set To Be Made?
The design and creation of a cremation kerb set, its headstone or foot end, inscription or etching, and any intricate design additions is a highly skilled process, so we can expect it to take some time before the full kerb set is complete and ready for installation around the burial plot 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 Kerb Set?
Yes, you can certainly add something to an existing kerb set provided there is adequate space available. This could be a special etching design, an additional inscription, a change of font, or the inclusion of a photo plaque or additional flower containers. Whatever it may be, we can discuss your requirements and confirm what kerb set amendments can be carried out and what we can do to achieve it.
What Is The Average Cost Of A Kerb Set?
It’s extremely difficult to state an average cost of a kerb set. This is because each kerb set is unique, and the cost will vary based on the size, material, kerb set 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 Kerb Set?
Yes, you can make prior arrangements for the purchase of any kerb set so that your wishes, or those of a loved one, are carried out exactly as requested. Many people choose their full kerb set 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 kerb sets 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 Kerb Set First?
We can send you several proofs depicting how the kerb set 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 Kerb Set 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.
