"I find it very pleasing to create a memorial for a client that is unique to an individual, whether it's a small carving of their favourite animal or a flourished
font, just something different.
It's great to find customers that share that enthusiasm and want to mark a celebration of a loved ones life with the care and
attention to detail that goes into each piece.
I believe that not all memorials should be the same in the same way that no two people are. I think that many funeral directors and
other memorial masons can sometimes go down the path of looking through a catalogue with a client and can perhaps obscure their vision or hopes of what is or isn't achievable. I genuinely believe
that at Rayfield Stone we set the bar higher. We've got a team of highly skilled and qualified individuals and combined with artistic flair we can offer truly special memorials in house, at affordable prices.
