Why Pay More for Memorials?
We at Burslem have been supplying and fitting headstones and other stone monuments for over 135 years and know a thing or two about natural stone, its suitability for different applications and locations and what can be made from it – it’s what we do.
Many commercial organisations claim to be memorial masons but the reality is very few are and as a buyer – beware!
There are two other sources of memorial supply we regularly come across; internet based companies with no verifiable contact details and funeral directors.
At Burslem Memorials our policy is to encourage customers to come and see us to discuss their ideas, look at different stone types and develop designs and schemes. You can’t do that if you can’t meet the team delivering the goods.
Similarly funeral directors often sell themselves as memorial masons though this is rarely the case. What they are actually doing is buying memorials made, lettered and fitted by stone masons at discounted rates, marking the prices up – often significantly – and selling these on to grieving families at vast levels of profit.
At Burslem, memorial masonry is our business and we effectively and efficiently manage the process rather than fitting it in around other “more pressing” commitments, such as funerals. We can guarantee you will get the best advice, price and delivery by coming to us and buying directly from the source.
Buy directly from your stonemason and cut out the middle-man.
