We all want to honour the memory of our loved ones after they have passed away. We know our clients spend lots of time and put a great deal of thought into choosing the perfect memorial, one which rightfully shows the world what their deceased friend or relative means to them.
After the headstone is erected, people try to make time to tend the grave and keep it looking as good as new. However, various factors can affect memorials: wind, rain and other adverse weather conditions, air pollution, lichen and mosses can all play havoc with even the strongest stone over time and leave it looking worse for wear. Unfortunately, some even fall victim to vandalism or accidental damage.
Next time you visit your loved one’s grave, take a quick look at its condition. Could it do with a little tender loving care?
Sarsfield Memorials Liverpool is pleased to offer a full grave maintenance and refurbishment service. If you have moved out of the area, are getting on in years and not as agile as you used to be, or the demands of modern life mean that you don’t get to the churchyard or cemetery as often as you would like, why not let us give you peace of mind? As professional craftsmen who take great pride in the work we do, we can restore your loved one’s memorial to its former glory. In many cases, we can restore it to as good as new condition.
Many memorials are made out of granite, which is a hard-wearing stone that is capable of resisting the worst effects of the British weather over the years. In most cases, though, they will still benefit from a quick professional clean to restore a pristine look and any faded or damaged lettering can be engraved again or re-gilded. Softer stones such as marble, Portland and sandstone can suffer more serious damage and look discoloured, especially marble which families often mistake for concrete as it gets so dirty if not maintained regularly over a period of time. Here, we can professionally clean, repair or replace memorials as necessary, in line with your wishes.
