4 Materials

Memorials are made from granite, marble or natural stone, however some local burial authorities may insist on specific requirements. We can advise you on these local regulations.

Granite Granite is extremely hard wearing and polishes to a beautiful finish. It is available in many different colours and lends itself to very intricate lettering and finely etched design work. Finishes: Polished, part polished, honed or rustic Marble Carrara is the usual marble used for memorials. Marble is generally white and has a blue grey vein. As it weathers, it turns grey and becomes sugary, due to surface erosion.
