Headstones in the United Kingdom are most commonly created from either marble or granite. The reason for this choice is that both forms of stone are known to offer the strength required to withstand harsh weather conditions, which makes them ideal for the climate. Whilst the memorials created from either of these materials stand with both dignity and distinction, there are instances where an expressed wish for a form of limestone to be used. UK Memorial Service take pride in being able to meet this wish with their introduction of Nabresina limestone memorials.
The general view on limestone in the UK is that it is not suited for memorials. As it is prone to becoming stained it should normally only be used in places where regular maintenance can take place with ease. Although is the case with Nabresina limestone, the naturally stronger nature of this grade means that it can better withstand adverse weather conditions in a manner that sees no rapid deterioration of the memorial. UK Memorial Service work exclusively with trusted and certified supplies of Nabresina in order to ensure this resilient quality is present in the headstones they create.
A distinct advantage of the naturally stronger nature of Nabresina limestone is that it lends itself to more complex and intricate engravings. Whilst other forms of limestone are prone to easily being damaged when engraved, Nabresina allows for perfect, dignified inscriptions to be made on the surface. The BRAMM and NAAM accredited memorial masons who represent UK Memorial Service are also able to perfectly place requested images and patterns on the surface of a headstone created from Nabresina.
UK Memorial Service are renowned for their commitment to ensuring perfect, long lasting and high quality memorials are accessible to all at affordable pricing. Nabresina limestone headstones are not excluded from this. The company are dedicated to presenting this form of memorial to the public at the lowest cost possible. UK Memorial Service understands the concerns around the rising costs of funerals. They address these concerns by ensuring that they always remain supportively affordable in providing memorials which perfectly commemorate lost loved ones.
One of the most important factors in having a memorial created to commemorate a loved one is the assurance that it will be allowed to placed within the chosen cemetery or churchyard. UK Memorial Service have, over the course of four decades, built good relations with the authorities responsible for burial sites across the nation. The memorials they create, whether from Nabresina limestone or another choice of medium, are always done in a way which meets the rules and regulations for shape and size which are in place.
