Avoiding The Need To Remove Or Replace Memorial Gravestones

UK Memorial Service offer the safe, assured and guaranteed placing and fixing of headstones across Great Britain

Press Release : Placing a memorial at the burial site of a lost loved one, whether a partner, family member or friend, is one of the ways in which people are enabled to come to terms with their grief. A headstone or gravestone stands as a reminder to a life lived, and offers those who knew the deceased a chance to pause, reflect and remember the remarkable life they lead. It is of vital importance in meeting this that headstones placed are both safe to stand freely and are permitted by those responsible for the burial grounds.

UK Memorial Service have, for many years, been at the forefront of ensuring headstones meet these requirements. In recent times there has been a distinct increase in the number of headstones which have had to be either flattened or removed. This is because they do not meet the safety standards in place at the burial site and pose a genuine risk to people visiting it to pay their respects to the deceased.

Whilst the need to remove headstones which could harm people is understandable, it does cause distress and upset for those who knew and loved the deceased that the memorial was in place for. It is in the best interests of all involved that the need to remove a headstone is avoided. This can be achieved by using trusted, reputable and accredited masons to design, construct and place memorials.
