Choosing your Memorial
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.
