Design

Perhaps the deceased was a keen golfer, football player, hairdresser or musician.  It may be an idea to reflect this with a design on the memorial to demonstrate that.  This personalises the memorial and makes it unique from others in the cemetery and fitting to the person to whom the memorial is selected for.    These designs can be placed anywhere on the memorial.  Printouts can be provided.  Designs can be lazered on or cut in to the memorial and coloured or left plain. Our experienced craftsmen pride themselves on creating unique, highly detailed prices of art for use in many ways on our range of memorials. This helps ensure that any memorial chosen is personal enough to respectfully mark a person’s life.

Photo plaques

Many people like to add a framed plaque photograph of their loved one.  There are a number of frames to choose from and the photo is typically added to the top centre of the memorial depending on the shape of the memorial and the lettering.  These photos can be black and white or coloured.

Lettering

The lettering on the memorial is typically done in TIMES NEW ROMAN  but can be done in any font to suit the memorial and dependent on personal choice.  

The lettering can be giled in gold leaf, silver, black or coloured.
