When you feel it is time to choose a suitable memorial for your loved one, we are here to help; a memorial should be as individual for the person that it honours.
Each memorial, from a simple tablet to the most elaborate headstone and kerb enclosure receives individual and caring attention. Every memorial is special, and should be treated as such.
Memorials may take many forms and here are some details that should be considered when making your choice.
Each churchyard or cemetery has its own individual regulations regarding the size, materials and inscriptions of memorials, which must be adhered to.
A memorial would need to withstand all kinds of weather conditions for many years, be of strong and durable material, take a permanent carved inscription and possibly additional ones in the future. It should harmonise with the environment of the churchyard or cemetery.
Granite is the most durable of material from which a memorial can be made because of its ageless qualities. It can be polished, smooth or honed.
White marble does weather after many years but can be easily cleaned.
Natural stone is more porous and therefore weathers more quickly.
Browning’s are always available to advise you about local authority requirements and deal with the necessary procedures to obtain approval from the relevant church or cemetery councils.
