Choosing your Memorial

Memorial Masonry

At Arlington Funeral Services we believe it is important for those left behind to have a place, a permanent reminder of the deceased. A memorial can offer a place where you, friends and other family members can visit to reflect, lay flowers, share experiences and remember the life of your loved one and your times together. For many it is also the focal point for grieving the loss of a partner or friend.

With this in mind, we at Arlington Funeral Services can put you in touch with a stone mason in Stoke- on-Trent. There are many factors you will need to consider when choosing a memorial stone or ornament.These include physical attributes including, colour, shape, material (granite or marble) and other finer details, such as the font and colour or lettering, the inscription, whether you want to include any wording and what form these may take. You may also consider the application of design or photo plaque to help personalise your memorial.

We will help and advise you on a suitable memorial and any maintenance requirements for your choose, as well as guide you through the choices available including vases and plaques. We work with highly qualified craftsmen to ensure that your memorial stone meets local requirements as well as your personal preferences are met. We always put you in touch with approved by the National Association of Masons to ensure you get a memorial to the highest quality.

Arlington Funeral Services can also help you with  additions and improvements to existing memorials, including:

Additional Inscriptions

Additional text can be added to existing memorials, should you wish to add a few more words or in cases where a second inscription needs to be added.

Re-gilding, re-painting and re-lead lettering

Touching up and refreshing of existing lettering due to age and weathering.

Re-fixing memorials

Our experienced craftsmen can re-fix existing stones if they are unstable.

Memorial cleaning and maintenance

We can also put you in touch with someone who can look after any existing memorials. This includes cleaning and any upkeep that is needed during the contracted period.

Memorials for children

We understand that loosing a child is very hard and highly emotional. We will take the time to discuss with you the options to create a personalised memorial that best suits you and the memory of your child. We will guide you through the various options of choosing the design, shape and material and will assist you in the best way we can to create a fitting memorial. WE will then help you find a suitable stone mason who can help you with this

Remember Remember me when I am gone away, Gone far away into the silent land; When you can go no more hold me by the hand, Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay. Remember me when no more day by day You tell me of our future that you planned: Only remember me; you understand It will be late to counsel then or pray. Yet if you should forget me for a while And afterwards remember, do not grieve: For if the darkness and corruption leave A vestige of the thoughts that once I had, Better by far you should forget and smile Than that you should remember and be sad.
