Memorials come in all designs and heart shaped memorials in Kirkby are especially lovely. We all want to immortalise our loved ones and a special monument can often do that. The heart shaped memorial is especially eye-catching as it is a most uncommon shape. It is often necessary to apply to the churchyard or cemetery for permission to erect a memorial. We will submit drawings and details of lettering styles and finishes on your behalf at no extra cost. We use a wide variety of materials to craft the headstones and this includes marble, granite of all colours, limestone and many other natural materials. Some of the stones are finished to a high polish and others are only partly polished, leaving a natural rough edging.
Headstones shapes have changed over time and in Kirkby, heart shaped memorials are a popular choice. They come in a number of different styles, some are just the heart on a base and others are inset into angels or teddy bears, placed onto a headstone or made into part of the headstone design. The heart has always been a symbol of love and this incorporation of the symbol into the headstone is a way of showing how much the deceased was loved by all. This is especially poignant if the grave belongs to a child. It is always devastating to lose a young person whose life has barely begun and a heart shaped memorial is especially apt.
