INSCRIPTIONS AND LETTERING


After the memorial has been chosen, careful thought should be given the the composition and arrangement of the inscription.

A member of our experience staff will be able to advise and guide you in selecting the most appropriate wording or text and in particular a layout which will complement the shape of the headstone.

To assist you in this process, we are able to provide a draft inscription layout for your approval before any work is commenced.
