Memorial Masonry

Our skilled and experienced in-house memorial masonry team, Thomas Brown Memorials, can create a lasting memorial for your loved one.

We can help you choose a headstone or marker, and advise you on any regulations* which you may need to take into account when making your selection.

We offer a wide range of styles and designs, all of which we can talk you through in detail if you’d find it helpful.

There are many elements to a memorial – such as the type of stone and style of lettering used that can be selected, so that you can create a truly fitting memorial.

*Some cemeteries have certain restrictions relating to the size, material used and style of memorial they allow, we’ll advise you where this is the case and guide you through the types of memorial allowed for that site.

If you have any questions, just pop in to your local Scotmid funeral home, or call us on 0800 996 1927.
