i ordered a memorial stone plaque off the internet and its shit! so many mistakes in it! 14 to be exact. its not something i want to have to complain and kick a fuss about its something that would finally close the book on my babys death and enable me to try and move on past it as its been over a year!

the typing is the wrong size, there are sections which have been italic, there are no spaces where i asked for spaces, there are double spaces bettween some of the letters, there are capital letters where there shouldn't be, there is even an apostropy missing and the whole fliping text is on a small slant too, its a complete bodge!!!!!

i sent them a picture and they said they could do it exactly as i had asked!

why are people so crap??? is it just me or does anyone else feel like this? i now do not know what to do.

you have rights under the distance selling laws.

Send it back, with a letter requesting your money back.

Contact a local undertaker/monumental stonemason adn ask them to make you one.

So sorry this has happened xx

ive got dp to write an email to them, its a shame as it would have been really nice if done right. They did get one thing right which was my babys footprints on it they do look really great- and are the right size too.
it just was a shock, i hate it when things like this happen. well i will just wait and see what the company who made it say to dp's email.
