Bereavement and loss are part of our lives and we all handle grief in different ways. By providing a lasting beautiful monument that tells you about a loved one’s life gives comfort and remembrance.
We at Murray Memorials understand how important this is and we are here to help you through this difficult time. Sometimes it is hard to just contact someone about where to start and what to do. All you have to do is call and we will guide and help you every step of the way.
These are the steps you should go through before deciding upon a memorial.
Look at the work of memorial masons already in the cemetery over the last 5 to 10 years and look to see if:
A) The memorial wording is readable and even looking.
B) That the stone is still upright and not leaning.
C) Most importantly, do you like the way it looks.
Ensure the mason is in NAMM
The mason gives a minimum 10 year written guarantee written.

Have you purchased the grave plot?
If you have you will receive a deed from the local authority, sometimes the funeral director can arrange this for you. If you are not sure you can ring the local authority that owns the cemetary and give the name and dates of the deceased and they will help you from there. We at Murray’s can help you with this if you are not sure about how to proceed.
Are you the deed holder of the plot?
If you are not does it need to be transferred? Example: sometimes the person you have just lost is the person who is the deed holder and a transfer by way of a “statutory declartions” is needed. Murray Memorials will assist you with this.
Ensure that it is a memorial mason you are dealing with, not an undertaker or someone just offering the service.
The memorial mason should have premises and a showroom which contains a large range of colours and styles of the memorials.
You are now ready to look at headstones and we at Murray Memorials will help you with your choice, your wording and your design.
