Choosing the right memorial stones

A memorial stone is not simply a marker of where your loved one is buried or where their ashes are interned. It's a tribute to their life and a place for the family and friends they have left behind to gather in their memory. 

At Moons Funeral Service, we offer support and recommendations to families of the deceased in Thornton-Cleveleys and Lancashire throughout the process of installing a memorial stone to ensure you are satisfied with your decision.

Reflecting the life of the deceased


Whether you choose a classic or contemporary memorial stone, there are numerous ways to make it a unique and special place that will remind you of your loved one whenever you visit. Inscriptions and quotations are the ideal way to memorialise your loved one in an incredibly personal way. The shape may also be important to you – traditional rectangular or arched designs are classic and timeless, whereas floral detail and book designs have an ageless and ornate aesthetic. To personalise the memorial stone in a contemporary way, we offer updated designs such as football shirts, hearts, and even photographs of the deceased so you can keep memories fresh whenever you visit their resting place.
