The Memorial Design Process
The memorial process is one of very few activities nowadays which need at no stage to be rushed. The following summarises the key stages of commissioning and producing a memorial. At the initial consultation Neil will spend most of the time listening and helping friends and family formulate their thoughts and ideas. Many people then go home, to consult further with other friends and family. A further meeting or discussion with Neil may follow.
The Person, the Inscription.
This is one of the most personal aspects of the entire memorial. Some people find the whole process both an integral and constructive part of coming to terms with their loss.
Producing the Design
Neil then produces a design for the memorial. This is sent with a quotation. The quotation provides a detailed analysis of the costs for the stone, lettering, sculpture and other pertinent details. Some changes may be required and, if so, Neil will undertake these and produce a final proof.
Formal Sign-off of the Design
The final proof must be signed off by the grave owner(s) and a 50% deposit paid before the stone can be ordered.
The second and final payment of 50% falls due when the memorial has been completed and installed.
Please note that, when the stone is ordered, delivery generally takes 12 to 16 weeks.
