We deliver & fix in ALL* areas of mainland UK (excl. N. Ireland).
*If the delivery address is outside of a 150 mile radius of Dunstable and the order is less than £900, a charge of £95 will be added.
We will gladly crate-up and export memorials if your burial site is abroad. You will need to make the shipping arrangements yourself but we are happy to liaise with an agent about timings and prepare your memorial for collection. There is a cost associated with this which depends on the shape and size of your memorial, so contact us for a quote once you have decided what you would like to order.
This depends greatly on the style of memorial you have chosen. We have a minimum size of lettering which we adhere to but all our designs allow enough room for names, dates and a short verse at the minimum. If you have a lot of text you wish to add to a small/cremation memorial then we would advise you avoid heart-shaped headstones and large sandblasted designs. Adding a freestanding block vase to your memorial can be a handy way of adding more inscription space.
We estimate that orders for our standard designs will take approximately 12 weeks to manufacture & deliver.
This estimate begins from the date we have received both the cemetery or church permit and your second instalment rather than from the date you place your order. The process of obtaining a permit is carried out by us on your behalf and is generally straightforward. If you are having a more unusual style or size of memorial it can take longer to clarify the details with the cemetery and obtain permission which will affect the final delivery/fixing date.
We always endeavour to complete your order as quickly as possible but there are some factors over which have have no control, such as shipping and council response times. This means that some orders will take less than 12 weeks but others may take more. We will always keep you informed about the progress of your order.
If your order is for a non-standard memorial, it is very likely that the manufacturing & delivery time will be greater than 12 weeks.
Yes, if you wanted to fill the kerbs with soil and plants or buy your own chippings, we can leave this area empty.
I have been to the Cemetery to have a look and it is fabulous. A job well done. Thank you very much.

Many thanks for completing our order so swiftly. I visited the cemetery yesterday and I was so pleased. It is a very special memorial to my parents and looked exactly as I wanted. Thanks again.
