It is regretted that requests to place new memorial kerbstones/wall plaques next to existing memorials cannot be fulfilled.
You can view a sample page of the most popular memorial motifs with their identifying codes. There are hundreds more available and if you would prefer a motif that is not shown then please contact the relevant crematorium. Most choices can be catered for but if there is a problem with supplying a chosen motif then you will be contacted.
Memorials will not be positioned where the deceased's cremated remains were strewn. All kerbstones are laid in sequence following the paths.
