Choosing Your Headstone
Headstones are a very important part of the funeral service. They represent someone’s life, and should be designed to match their personality or interests.
Some general guidelines for picking out what you want:
A headstone can either serve as an upright stone with lettering on top, which might have personalisation like family names and dates; the name alone will appear at bottom left corner where there is often space available after adding years lived together in one sentence
Our headstones are made from a variety of materials, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. For example, granite is a popular material for headstones because it is strong and durable. However, it is also quite expensive.
Marble is another popular choice for headstones, as it offers a beautiful, natural look. However, marble can be susceptible to damage from weathering and is not as durable as granite.
Other materials that are sometimes used for headstones include granite, limestone, slate, and marble.
Granite Headstones provide a durable, long-lasting headstone for your loved ones. They can withstand virtually any weathering and come in colours such as black or white with gray highlights to add that extra touch of class when it comes time to pay tribute at their graveside service.
Limestone, Nabresina headstones have become more popular as an alternative to white or cream stones because it’s durable and suitable for most graveyard conditions; however you may want something with added aesthetically pleasing features such as colour if you prefer vibrant shades!
Headstones made from the durable and beautiful material of slate are a popular choice for headstone markers. Our Irish-sourced slates come with an attractive finish that will last decades, ensuring your loved one’s memorial remains timeless in its beauty as time goes on!
The durability and low maintenance of marble headstones make them a popular choice. They darken over time but are still easy to maintain; however, because they’re more expensive than granite stones it may not be permitted in churchyards or cemeteries.
Ultimately, the material that is chosen for a headstone will depend on factors such as budget, durability, and aesthetic preferences. We will work with you to create a headstone that is unique and tailored to your specific needs.
