Muslim Memorials

Muslim memorials in Britain’s cemeteries tend not to be over elaborate. If there is a stone marker at all, it is usually of a plain ogee type and sometimes will come with kerbset and slab over the grave space.

In Liverpool’s Allerton cemetery, a dedicated Muslim section was created in 2017 which should have capacity until at least 2035. There is also a dedicated Muslim woodland section. This is a place for eco-friendly burials and only basic wooden markers are allowed. Allerton is thus almost unique, as in addition to the Muslim section there are dedicated sections for Church of England, Roman Catholic, Nonconformist and Jewish burials.

Sometimes Muslim memorials are no more than a simple wooden marker with a plaque. However, for those that prefer their loved ones grave to be marked by a conventional headstone, there are a range of options available. At Sarsfield we have a wide selection of headstones in the finest quality granite, marble and stone to suit all budgets. We are able to carve inscriptions in Arabic or Urdu to create a lasting tribute. We can also supply kerb sets, vases, memorial plaques and other grave ornamentation.

We work with our clients on the design process at your home or at another convenient location, whatever suits best at a difficult time. We are on hand to discuss your needs at a very difficult and sensitive time, making the process as easy as possible. We are Liverpool’s oldest family run monumental mason, having been in existence for over seventy years and now in its third generation. We pride ourselves in providing memorials for all denominations.
