Our beautiful, individually finished cremation stones in Eastham are usually the same size as a gravestone. This is because there is enough space to bury more than one family member in the same plot. There is a wide range of colours and designs in a number of different types of stone. The most popular being granite of various colours and marble which is normally although not always white. The shape of the stone can be determined by you so long as it falls within the acceptable parameters of the churchyard or cemetery requirements. You can design your own unique shape or choose one of our beautiful stones that have already been shaped or you could have one modified to suit.
When you are looking to erect a memorial or headstone in a churchyard or cemetery you need to use a reputable stone mason. In Eastham, cremation stones can be made to your individual requirements. Our helpful staff will offer advice should you require it on the wording to be carved into the stone. As it is made for more than one person there will be space left for later interments. The letters are usually highlighted with colour making them easily legible. The most popular colours for filling in the lettering are white, silver and gold. Designs of special significance can be carved into the stone, a religious symbol like a dove or a military badge. Our staff will complete all the necessary documentation for the church and council authorities.
