We would like to thank you for the beautiful restoration work on my family's headstone. The headstone was 36 years old and it looks like brand new - absolutely amazing! A big "Thank You" to Pauline who helped me at this sad time after I lost my lovely mam to put together the wording on the headstone. I was treated with respect and made to feel special throughout the procedure.

Thank you,

Mrs J.

Many thanks to all the staff for the kind and considerate way in which you made a difficult job slightly easier. Having never had to choose a memorial before, you were able to help and advise my mum, ensuring she took her time to make decisions which were hard. When I came and saw the memorial in the cemetery last weekend, myself and all the family can't express how pleased we were with the final product.

Many thanks,

Mrs H.

The service and attention to detail we received to replace a stone was outstanding. I would not hesitate to recommend. Thank you

Mr Dippnall
