“Thanks for the outstanding work you’ve to done on my mothers headstone engraving,plot Q 158 Birtley Cemetery. I have been along today and had a look and its an excellent piece of work”


“Hi Paul,

I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the headstone you and your team have done an incredible job.  We actually got to meet some of the lads as they were placing the headstone at the cemetery as we were there laying flowers with it being a year today that Tommy passed away. I can’t express how over the moon we are having the headstone there on the anniversary.

Thank you again”

Joanne and the Williams family

“We would like to expresss our sincere gratitude for all your hard work in creating our bespoke memorial for my Mam. We came back and forth via phone and personal trips going over every fine detail of the design to ensure it was to the vision we had in our minds eye. Professional and personal customer service throughout the process, empathy was second nature to each and every one of the staff members which helped with the process along the way. There were times we worried about how the style and colours would lookbut we need not to have stressed at all as it was all in very professsional hands. Our design was so unique that we often get comments on how well it looks and stands out in the graveyard , one of a kind we get told time and time again and that is exactly how we reflect on my Mam – one of a kind! -. Thank you especially to James who helped get the wheels in motion, to Paul who made sure the design was how we wanted it to be and last but not l ast a massive Thank You to Bridie who guided us and was just the other end of the phone whenever we needed her advice with no quest too large a task. I would certainly recommend you without any hesitation to anyone whom may need your services.”

Barbara Ann Matthews

“I wanted to thank you & Scott Memorials for the faultless service and attention with my late wife Rebecca’s memorial.
You mangaed to translate my requirements perfectly into the memorial design and lettering even though I was corresponding from overseas.
Having the memorial installed on the 28th August, my Wedding Anniversary, was as perfect as it could be under the circumstances. I appreciate the effort you put in to make sure that happened.
I am sure from your experience you know the great comfort this faultless attention brings to the bereaved family.
I could not have asked for anything more. Thanks again best wishes.”


“Dear Angela and Paul,
Just a note to say how pleased Lisa and I are with Charlie’s head stone and kerb set.
Lisa and I visited various funeral directors before coming to Scott’s, and right from the beginning we felt that Scott’s were far superior in dealing with our enquiry and answering our questions in what was a difficult time for both of us.
The communication was outstanding and emails answered very quickly, a big thanks to Paul for help and adding direction on the designing of the inscription and Angela was always extremely helpful.
Once again thanks”
