It can be difficult to find the words you want to say, especially when those words are for a fitting and lasting tribute such as a memorial or commemorative plaque.
Glasdon have been designing and manufacturing memorial seats and benches for over 40 years.
So we are fortunate to be able to share some examples of different styles of presentation which may help you find the words you want to say.
