Smith Memorials is a family run business just outside Armagh City. The Memorial works was formed as an additional service to the existing Funeral Undertaking & Vintage Carriage Hire Services we offer. Some years ago in 2005 we were asked to provide a memorial headstone for a local family and the memorial work carried on from then. This year 2015 we have put together a collection of our Headstones we have to offer, they range in various shapes, sizes and colours. Our memorial work extends throughout Northern Ireland and local bordering counties, Monaghan and Cavan.
Our Headstone collection includes various designs and colours of granite; Celtic, Classic, Rustic, Carved, Bolder, Scrolls and Bibles, Sheilds, and Period Style Gravestones. with colours in; Bahama Blue, Black, Blue Lagoon and Grey.
Whichever type of headstone you choose we can advise you on the style of the kerbing and matching corner posts. Some cemeteries have their own guidelines as to the style of headstone and surround, we take this into account when a memorial is purchased from us. All our surround are available in the same material as the headstone you choose.
Side Cladding are constructed from granite panels that form the base of a grave below the surround. These are installed with the foundation and are commonly used now a days. These keeps your grave neat and tidy and easy to maintain.
In choosing a chipping to cover the floor of your memorial it is equally important to choose a finish that is easily maintained. All of our grave chippings are derived from natural stone, and are washable. We also supply and fit artificial fiar lawn grass, this is becoming quite popular as it really is maintenance free.
Memorial RestorationPart of our service to you includes restoration of an aged or weathered gravestone. We can conduct a free survey on your behalf and provide you with a detailed quotation of the work that is required to restore your grave to its former presence.
