A memorial should be designed to preserve the memory of loved ones, so choosing the right style and message is important. The experienced team at Beckfords are able to guide you through the process and provide valuable knowledge with regards to Cemetery requirements as there are a number of restrictions placed on various cemeteries across the island. Therefore, we strongly advise against sourcing your own memorial as these are often not permitted.
We make the process as simple as possible, all you need to do is make a choice, help can be provided if required. There are a large selection of memorials to choose from, plus the option to create bespoke designs. Our team can also help with creating the messaging for the memorial and Beckfords will organise the engraving.
A headstone cannot be fitted for a period of six months after the date of burial.

Headstones are complemented by interchangeable hand etched, shaded and sandblasted designs.
Only a small section of memorials and designs are shown, craftsmen are able to reproduce any bespoke designs.
Special shapes and designs are often chosen for children’s memorials. A range of individually designed granite and marble hand carved memorials that incorporate shaded images and hand painted designs can be created.
