Welcome to Hunnaball Memorials

At Hunnaball Memorials, a headstone is a lasting monument and a tribute to a person’s life, perhaps a final gift to someone dearly loved, so it is important to choose it carefully.

We can offer a range of elegant and distinctive memorials, in traditional and contemporary designs, fashioned by hand from the finest granite, limestone and marble.

We are able to supply all types of memorials and carry out all the formalities with Cemetery and Church Authorities on your behalf.

We also undertake restoration work and the addition of new inscriptions to existing memorials.

Ask us about StoneGuard ‘All Risks’ Insurance Policy to protect your memorial from accidental damage, vandalism, theft or subsidence from as little as £5.60 a year.

Special memorials update 2022

The UK is experiencing a number of delays in the production and delivery of memorials. These are happening for many reasons, including the recent pandemic, and are affecting the entire funeral industry. The result is that grieving families are having to wait far longer than usual for the memorials and headstones they’ve ordered to be installed. Currently, in some circumstances, the wait can be as long as 12 months.

While these delays are entirely beyond our control, we understand that for some people it has been very distressing. We work very hard to fulfil orders and installations as quickly as possible but want to do more to help our clients in the current climate.

Therefore, we’ve made the decision to make a limited range of our current memorial display stock available for immediate purchase. In this way, grieving families and friends who have found the delay most difficult will be able to purchase a memorial or headstone immediately, so that it can be installed more quickly. Whilst the selection is more limited, it is available now, in perfect condition, with no fading or wear, and every memorial or headstone is an example of the very best stone and granite memorials we offer.

Since they have been on display in our branches, however, we are making them available at a 20% reduction in price.

We sincerely hope that this will be a help to those who feel unable to wait longer than the current situation dictates for a memorial installation. Once an inscription has been carved and specific cemetery time restrictions have been observed (for example, a period of up to six months can be necessary to allow the ground to settle following a burial), the memorial can be installed quickly, and the memorial process can be concluded, leaving you free to reflect and remember.

Images of the available memorials and headstones are shown in a leaflet, the illustrated centre pages of which you can view by clicking on the button below. Every one of our branches has full print copies of this leaflet with the same pictures. Please note that these former display memorials are necessarily limited in number and not all the items illustrated may be available if someone else has purchased them. If you would like to talk to one of our team, or purchase any of the memorials illustrated, please call our memorial department on 01206 794747 and they will be very happy to help you.
