|| Flowers may well be the last gift you
are able to buy for someone. They add colour and life to a funeral.
They can help to decorate the coffin and be placed in a grave as part
of a burial service.
Below is just a small selection of our standard range of floral tributes
but almost anything is possible. Colours can be chosen that are meaningful
and specially ordered designs can cover almost any subject. In the
past we have supplied Club badges and motifs, cartoon characters,
aeroplanes, cars, cricket bats, guitars, pints of beer, footballs
and even a bowl of fruit & veg’. Given enough time most
things are possible and we would happily discuss someone’s ideas
Whenever someone has been laid to rest, either by being buried or
having their ashes interred, it is always worth considering a permanent
memorial to identify the place where they are, and to provide a focal
point for family and friends to visit. We can supply a large range
of different memorials but would always first need to check with the
authority who controlled a particular burial site to ensure that we
adhered to their guidelines.
Most of our standard range of memorials is acceptable to most cemeteries
and we can advise you on the choices of colour and materials. Also
we can give advice on alternatives such as trees, plaques or benches.
More details are available below along with pictures of some of the
more unusual memorials that we can provide.
Natural stones, slate and various coloured granites are the
most common materials used for memorials in this country.
Granites provide the widest choice of colours and are, generally,
acceptable to most cemeteries. Some churchyards may only allow
slate or natural stone dependant on the area. Lettering on
natural stone or slate memorials is normally cut without any
painting or gilding to highlight the letters. On granite memorials
the letters can be gilded, painted or cut only. Marble memorials
can have painted or leaded lettering.
We can arrange for additional inscriptions as well as new
memorials and the renovation of existing headstones and vases.
Not always is a headstone or vase the most suitable memorial.
We can give help and advice on alternatives such as wooden
benches, trees, entries into books of remembrance and plaques.
Whether you would like the memorial to be in a cemetery, at
a crematorium or in public place we can help you make the
right choice. We can also help you with smaller plaques and
even pet memorials, perfect to have at home.
