Exceptional memorials

Supporting our local bereaved is everyone’s main aim at Forest Of Dean Crematorium and when it comes to remembering their loved ones, we pride ourselves on helping families create uniquely personal tributes and memorials.

Not only are we continually looking for new ways to do this, to enable people to have as much choice as possible, we also care about the quality of the memorial, and for that reason, we partner with some of the very best memorial suppliers.  

That’s why we work in partnership with Odlings Ltd, and The Columbaria Company, because they – like Westerleigh Group – believe in providing exceptional levels of service.

Being the oldest memorial wholesaler in the country, Odlings have been supplying granite and stone memorials for more than 150 years, with innovative and creative designs developed by its team of award-winning crafts men and women.

They offer a beautiful range of standard sandblasted designs, as well as a bespoke service which enable people to truly personalise a memorial and capture the life of a loved one.

This personalisation can involve designs such as a favourite place, animal or flower, a club crest, regimental badge, something to represent a favourite hobby or even a portrait.

Each artist is patient and takes immense personal pride in every memorial they work on because they appreciate the personal nature of what they are producing.

Chris Kemp, General Manager of Odlings Ltd, said: Our successful heritage is built on our expert and specialist knowledge of the memorial industry and customer needs. Our experienced and highly professional teams are dedicated to providing and delivering outstanding products and service.

“Our field of expertise and what truly sets us apart from our competitors, is the quality of our sandblast design work. Our innovative and creative designs are the envy of our competitors and set the standard in the trade.”

Matthew Brook, Head of Memorialisation at Westerleigh Group, said: “Westerleigh Group prides itself on providing exceptional care to the families we work with, and that extends beyond providing final farewell for a loved one. 

“Memorialisation is usually the next natural step that families wish to take. Whether their loved one was cremated or buried, choosing a memorial is a very personal journey.

“For us, choosing the right partners to support families with their memorials is essential. Odlings have been honing their expertise for more than 150 years, which makes them the perfect partners for us, and we are delighted to be working with them and to be able to offer their quality craftsmanship to our families.”
