When looking for a headstone in Liverpool, you need to be aware that the price you see advertised is not necessarily what you will finally pay. This is why at Sarsfield Memorials we don’t list our headstone prices, instead preferring to have a discussion with you first over your requirements. We can then give you a free no obligation quote which contains no hidden extras.
Our bespoke service means that we give you an all inclusive quote once we have all your information. Before we can consider pricing we need to know what cemetery you require a headstone for and when the burial was. We then have to take into account the varying cemetery regulations in the different local authorities across the Liverpool city region. For example Liverpool city council approve of kerbsets in some of their cemeteries but Knowsley doesn’t allow them at all, while there are also different size restrictions.
Furthermore, there are different regulations altogether for the Roman Catholic cemeteries which are managed by the Archdiocese of Liverpool, while the Church of England also gives guidance for their vicars as to what is acceptable in churchyards.
When we have listened to your requirements and discussed options available we can then give you price inclusive of VAT which includes the headstone, an inscription containing one hundred letters, flower vases, cemetery /churchyard fees and fixing to NAMM standards. We honour this price for six months months and the only circumstances it would change are if the local authority raise their fees. Otherwise we promise you won’t be hit with any additional charges. The only extras you pay are for additions you wish to make, such as photographs or ornamentation.
You may see headstones advertised for ‘unbeatable prices’ or see headstones advertised for sale on the internet. However you must be really careful here, because you may order a headstone from an online retail site then find it does not fall in with the cemetery regulations, or its fixings do not meet the NAMM standards.
