100 Year Anniversary
A lasting tribute to your loved one




Choosing a memorial can be a difficult task, but at Alderson’s Family Funerals, we are able to offer advice and assist you in purchasing a lasting tribute that’s perfect for your loved one.

We can help you to choose or design the most suitable memorial from our large selection of premium quality headstones, using an array of different materials. We also offer additions such as marble statues, memorial vases, porcelain photographs and ornaments.

We use a local monumental masonry company who are members of BRAMM (British Register of Accredited Memorial Masons) and their memorials are fixed to comply with NAMM (National Association of Monumental Masons) regulations. All memorials are made subject to permission from the relevant churchyard or local authority cemetery, and certain restrictions may apply regarding the type of stone allowed, and the design. We will make all the necessary enquiries on your behalf and advise you accordingly.

For those who would like to see an old tribute for a loved one restored to its former beauty, we also offer a memorial renovation service. We can visit the memorial for a survey in order to provide you with an accurate estimation of the work that needs doing, i.e. whether a full renovation is necessary or a simple clean and re-inscription will suffice.

Based in Durham and serving the surrounding areas such as Newton Hall, Belmont and Coxhoe, Alderson’s Family Funerals would love to help you create the perfect tribute for your loved one. If we can be of further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.

Yes you can, but in order to do this, we will need the deeds or definite confirmation as to the location. Most councils require the deeds or an indemnity signed. There are often strict rules regarding the erection of memorials in churchyards and cemeteries and we can advise you of these at the time.
