Why get memorial insurance?
Ensure that you have complete peace of mind.
Subsidence and accidental damage are possible issues. Insurance can ensure damage, from minor repairs to total replacement, is rectified very quickly. Typically, claims received by insurers are as a result of damage from lawn mowers, falling trees and subsidence, or from preventative measures taken by local councils when they feel a memorial stone may be unsafe.
