Memorial Plaques in Wirral

Memorial plaques in WirralMemorial plaques in Wirral can help ease the grief and sorrow after losing a family member. My father died a few years ago and after the funeral service, he was buried in the churchyard. My mother was obviously devastated. We decided to look for a memorial for the grave. We found a helpful company who really aided us in finding out the various restrictions and rules at the churchyard as most of them have size regulations and various other restrictions. After finding out what was suitable, we were advised on the various materials available for a memorial stone.

In Wirral, memorial plaques can be made of granite or marble. The polished granite was beautiful and came in such a variety of colours that it was very difficult to choose. Once we had settled on a dark granite we looked at the various shapes. The craftsmen offered to make any shape we wanted. We chose to have a double headstone as my mother wanted to be buried with my father and we then composed an inscription with the help of the master craftsman who helped us select the right words to engrave on the stone. We asked for the inscription to be highlighted in white. My father had loved gardening and we asked for a simple flower to be engraved in the top corner of the stone. They placed it on the grave and it looks beautiful. It has brought a lot of peace to my mother and the rest of the family.

Memorial plaques in Wirral can be restored. My gran is buried in the same churchyard but her memorial stone is marble and it had weathered over the years so we asked if they could restore it. They collected the stone and when they brought it back it looked like new. It was snow white and gleaming. The inscription had been cleaned and was once again easy to read.
