“A memorial is an extremely valuable and essential link between the past and the future.”

Memories are precious and should be shared with future generations. A memorial is an item of beauty and great dignity which provides a focus for grieving and a point of reference to a person’s entire existence.

Millingtons offers a comprehensive range of memorial options, for lawns, garden sites, feature gardens and niche walls. All memorials have the same essential purpose and that is to provide a permanent symbol of remembrance.

Inscriptions on memorials can record all sorts of information including achievements, services and lifestyle. This information is valuable for future generations as well as a historical record.

Various sizes and designs are available to you with an extensive library of motifs, emblems, borders and badges. Traditionally plaques have a brown lacquer finish but the option for coloured backgrounds is available to you.

Garden memorials are set onto plinths and placed throughout the cemetery at various memorial gardens.
