In the last few weeks Sarsfield Memorials have completed some orders for memorials in Liverpool’s cemeteries on behalf of clients who live far from the city and even on different continents. Despite the distances, we have still been able to complete the orders with efficiency and received wonderful feedback from satisfied clients.
Earlier this week the Liverpool Echo featured the heartwarming story of Carol Hisken, who died aged 78 last year in Aberdeen, She had moved there from Liverpool at the age of five after the death of her mother, who was buried in Everton Cemetery. When Carol visited her mother’s grave in 2015 she was beside herself to find there was no headstone.
Carol’s final wish was that her mother’s grave be appropriately marked and that her ashes be interred there when she passed away herself. Sarsfield have been pleased to help Carol’s daughter with this, installing a foundation and black granite ogee headstone that has inscriptions paying tribute to both ladies. Despite Aberdeen being 350 miles from Liverpool, we were able to conduct the whole ordering process smoothly by telephone and online.
Although there is a Perth in Scotland that is seventy miles closer to Liverpool than Aberdeen, it was Perth in Australia where we had another long distance customer. This time it was for a headstone at a cremation plot for a lady in Anfield Cemetery. Her daughter contacted us online and explained she would be home for a few weeks only and really wanted to be there when it was installed and her ashes interred. Again, we were able to complete the process and have the memorial ready for when she was back in Liverpool. She has kindly left a review on Google for us which says “We all couldn’t of been more happy with the service they provided us. Such an excellent team, Ursula was such a caring lady would definitely recommend her.”
Our next piece of long distance work is for a lady who now lives in Holland. Her mother’s grave in a Liverpool cemetery has never been marked but we have begun the process of installing a memorial there. Again, we have been able to do everything online in respect of the customer choosing the design and inscriptions.
Sarsfield Memorials have now been in operation for 75 years, with Ursula being the third generation to run Liverpool’s oldest family owned monumental mason business. We rarely advertise, relying on customer recommendation and reviews to gain clients. You can be rest assured from reading our reviews that we are trustworthy and make the process easy for you, wherever you are in the world.
