aboutus1George Lightfoot Independent Funeral Directors inc. Twyfords Memorials enjoy an excellent reputation for producing fine quality Memorials. They remain an independent family-owned company who have been supplying Memorials for over 50 years and pride themselves in offering a caring, respectful and also value for money service. Our craftsment have many years of practical experience in designing, manufacturing, inscribing and erecting all kinds of Monuments and Memorials.


Unlike some Memorial companies who advertise themselves in the press, we do not just supply you with a brochure and expect you to choose your requirements from a book. We back up our brochures with Memorials on display in our showroom, to enable you to visualise your choice. Having the showroom locally also means that you have personal contact, which is so important at this time and is available five days a week. When you call in to see us you speak personally to people who are sympathetic to your needs and are also knowledgeable of their trade.

It is common to cherish a favourite picture as a way to remember a loved one’s life. George Lightfoot Independent Funeral Directors inc. Twyfords Memorials can reproduce almost any design / picture you wish according to the stone you choose which produces a truly unique and personal memorial. We can even create a special personalised etching from a photograph. Etchings are an appropriate choice for decorating polished granite memorials found in most cemeteries.


Being a local company also means we have a wealth of knowledge of how the local Churchyards and Cemeteries implement their regulations and therefore we are able to advise you regarding any restrictions which might apply. We are a full member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF MEMORIAL MASONS (NAMM) and as such offer the NAMM 6-year written guarantee on the quality of the new Memorial you have chosen… Not every Mason offers this.

We also offer an After Sales Service which includes:

  1. A Memorial maintenance scheme for both new and older Memorials
  2. A renovation service for older Memorials
  3. Adding further inscription to existing Memorials
  4. All-risks Memorial insurance cover (this includes vandalism)

We are confident we can offer our customers Memorials of the finest quality, produced by ourselves and finished to the highest standard, whilst maintaining very competitive prices.
