Here at Franklin Memorials we believe that any memorial is a lasting tribute to a loved one, and a lasting symbol of remembrance of a life lived. We take great pride in the caring, personal and professional service that we offer to help guide you through the process to ensure your loved one is remembered in a lasting and dignified way. Your requirements can be discussed at our Highworth workshop or in the comfort of your own home including evenings and at weekends.
We can produce bespoke memorials for your loved ones in a wide range of stone materials, colours and designs to create a memorial to suit your personal requirements. Your chosen inscription will be carefully engraved by hand in our own workshop and you are more than welcome to visit us to inspect your chosen memorial before it is engraved and again before it is installed.
Based in Highworth, Wiltshire on the Blackworth Industrial Estate, we pride ourselves as being local to the immediate surrounding area and have detailed knowledge of the individual rules and regulations of the Churchyards and Cemeteries in the Swindon, North Wiltshire, South Gloucestershire and South Oxfordshire area. We understand that it is not always the case that the final resting place of a loved one will be close by so can personally install the memorial outside of our local area should you wish us to.
We are an independent BRAMM (British Register of Accredited Memorial Masons) registered memorial stonemasons. Our master craftsman holds a BRAMM advanced fixer mason's licence ensuring that the memorial you choose is designed, carved, finished and installed to the highest standards, meeting or exceeding the requirements of BS 8415 and in compliance with any rules and regulations of the installation site.
We can also offer a complete memorial renovation and cleaning service for existing memorials, this can be performed in-situ or in our workshop given the appropriate permissions.
