Choosing A Lidsters Memorial

Each Memorial is a very special item, and individual to you. At Mounseys and Lidsters, we provide whatever help and advice you require - throughout the process and beyond.

Our friendly, courteous and experienced team will offer guidance and assistance in the selection of your Memorial - helping to create a unique Memorial that matches your specific requirements, and will be a long-lasting tribute to your loved one. We believe that almost anything is possible and encourage you to consider the images on the website and in the brochure to be just a starting point for your own imagination and expression.

The selection of each Memorial is a very individual process. Here are a few suggestions that may help you begin to create an appropriate tribute.

Stage 1

The starting point is to consider your material and design preferences, (this is subject to local regulations – please feel free to get in touch to discuss). This can be one of our standard designs, or something bespoke to suit both your specific needs and budget. In either case, we will be able to assist you to create an individual and fitting Memorial.

We will have an initial discussion with you that will allow us to assess your requirements. We can also provide guidance on any Churchyard or Cemetery Regulations that could have a bearing on your Memorial selection. Every Memorial is unique and we always treat it as such.

Stage 2

It is our opinion that seeing (and feeling) actual examples of the different designs and materials that we can offer will enable you to fully appreciate the quality of our workmanship. You can visit one of our showrooms in Chesterfield or Worksop, where you will be able to discuss your needs with a member of our team and identify which style, material, design and inscription you have in mind.

Alternatively you may prefer the convenience of being able to specify and order a Memorial from the comfort of your own home. We can offer a personal service that will allow this, whilst at the same time ensuring that you are fully involved in the process.

Stage 3

Once you have chosen the Memorial style, material, design and inscription, we will prepare a detailed specification and quotation together with a computer generated diagram to illustrate how the headstone may look.

Stage 4

We strongly advise that you take as much time as you need over your selection and do not make any hasty decisions, as you must be completely comfortable with your final choice. Our staff will always be on hand to discuss any thoughts or queries you may have. Any adjustments or revisions that may be needed can still be carried out at this stage.

Stage 5

When the specification and inscription are finalised we will send a Confirmation of Order and Memorial Permit Application (where necessary) for your approval, completion and signatures.

Stage 6

Once the order is confirmed, the deposit is paid and the permit is approved (where necessary), we can prepare and fix your Memorial within the agreed time frame.

Please note that we only require an initial deposit to secure your Memorial and the remaining balance is not payable until the work has been successfully carried out to your complete satisfaction.

We can take a variety of payment methods including cash, cheque, all major credit and debit cards as well as BACS transfer.


During these challenging times we are offering 10% discount on all memorial orders that are completed using telephone email, and post, i.e non contact. We are very well experienced at working with clients in this way and we can assure you that there is no loss of service and the finished result will be exactly the same. Simply call or email us for details. Our full brochure and prices can be found at
