Highly professional Memorial services

We commissioned Watson Memorials to carry out cleaning and renovation of our family headstone, which is over 50 years old. A full and clear explanation was given as to the work needed including the recommendation of the replacement of the foundation stone. Full contact was maintained throughout the process which included the electronic completion of the necessary paperwork, this all proved to be a seamless exercise. The end result was a magnificent shining new looking headstone, something which we did not think a possible outcome. The renewed foundation stone proved very sound advice and indeed enhanced the end product. Many thanks to the firm for their sound advice, personal care and highly professional work. We can highly recommend this firm to anyone who requires this and similar services.

Excellent service at Watson Memorials Darlington

Found this company after visiting many sites & several actual showrooms looking for a headstone. This was definitely the best, most helpful and considerate staff with clearly illustrated & extensive list of headstones. From initial enquiries through selecting, ordering and erecting of the headstone the member of staff has been most helpful and patient. The finished item is excellent, very good value for money, delivered well in the specified time and I would recommend Watson Memorials and definitely use again without hesitation.

Cemetry Plot Revamp

The project was to replace the gold lettering on three headstones with silver. This was achieved with minimum of fuss and great professionalism by Craig. He also straightened and levelled the stones and the plot surround. An excellent job and I would confidently recommend Watson Memorials.
