Dear Memorials of Manchester,
I would like to express my appreciation for the service you have provided.
Your care and understanding meant a lot especially due to the difficult circumstances.
Your professional and helpful approach is tremendous and it made me feel at ease knowing that this project was in the right hands.
You definitely went beyond your call of duty and although I wouldn’t wish anyone to be in this situation, I wish you much success in all your endeavors and in bringing comfort to grieving families.
Thank you very much,
Firstly many thanks for the swift and exceptional quality job which you carried out in relation to the stone for our daughter, Soroh O’H.
It is obviously a very difficult time for the whole family and your professionalism, together with your kind and caring nature made a marked difference to the occasion.
We have no reservations in recommending you and your company to anybody who requires this service.
Wishing you Hatzlocho Rabbo.
All the best.
Kershner o”h, is magnificent.
Mr Issler of Memorials of Manchester made the entire process, from advising
about selecting the correct stone, the most appropriate wording and anything
else he felt that the family needed to consider, straightforward.
On behalf of the entire family, thank you for creating such a meaningful tribute
to our parents.
Families Kessler & Kershner
Dear Mr Issler,
I would like to thank you for the excellent work you have done for my late Mother’s Matseiva. I find that this is a true manifestation of Kibud Eim, and it is obviously your expertise and commitment to deliver absolute and perfect achievement, which have produced this masterpiece.
It was a real “pleasure” [not the appropriate word for that situation] to deal with you, as nothing was too much for you, with your special patience and calmness, and I am very grateful for all that.
I wish you to be busy for many years to repair and rebuild old Matseivas, so there will be no time – and no need – for any new ones Ad Bias Hago’el.

I just want to express my thanks for the care, empathy and kindness you have shown through the difficult months following the passing of my Rebbetzin AH.
The choosing of a memorial stone, with its wording and all that comes with it, comes at the worst time for the mourners. It cant be easy to have to speak of such matters when those involved are facing their most troubled time. Yet, with you we all felt that you were not merely a merchant, but more importantly, that you were a caring friend. In the darkest moments , having a caring friend who is looking for the honour of your loved one and not merely the profit line, was truly an act of extreme empathy .
I have known you for many years, and when I was Rabbi of the South Manchester Synagogue I was always happy to suggest you for all matters of monuments etc. I did this because I knew you could be trusted to be helpful and kind. When tragically struck my family, I turned to you for my personal needs, knowing you could be trusted to do the right thing. Your compassion was a great comfort, and when the monument stone was finished, the entire family was impressed in the superlative work you had done. I know you face so many difficult situations, where people are at their lowest point and are vulnerable.
I can whole heartedly give my most positive recommendation to others, knowing that your work is done with heart and understanding. May you be blessed to work on simchas in the future With Torah Blessings

Unfortunately I had to call on Mr Issler of Memorials of Manchester recently for provision of a memorial stone.
Mr Issler met the family out of hours and provided us with a range of options and sound advice, based on many years of experience.
We chose one of the more ornate options which required importing a stone from India at short notice, besides providing a text that was the last thing we had to do.
The memorial stone was delivered on time on a well prepared base and finished to everyone’s satisfaction.
Mr Issler was a pleasure to deal with, available at all times, efficient and unfailingly courteous.
Under the circumstances, a pleasure to deal with.

Dear Mr Issler.
We just wanted to say a huge thank you on the recent gravestone you provided for my late mother Lita Edwards and the renewal of my fathers’ gravestone, Albert Edwards.
You were incredibly helpful with myself and my wife when we first visited Memorials of Manchester.
You made us feel very welcome. Ordering a gravestone for a parent is a very traumatic thing to do and you made the whole experience very calming and relaxing for both of us.
You were extremely thorough with us when I first met you taking the time to walk round the different burial grounds to get an idea of what we could have. You were also very welcoming to us both when we visited your showroom and again taking us round the cemeteries to get a visual idea again.
We were absolutely thrilled with the quality of the stone when we had the unveiling last Sunday. My sister who flew in from the States was extremely delighted with the way it had turned out especially as we were making it into a double gravestone for both mum and dad.
I want to thank you again Mr Issler and we would have no hesitation in recommending you in the future.
Wishing you and your family a very happy and sweet New Year and well over the fast.
The memorial stone his company produced for my late wife Susan Rubins, is both highly attractive and durable, and will be a very fitting tribute for many, many years to come.
On behalf of the Bowdon Synagogue Trust I would like to thank you for the work that has been done to date at the Bowdon Synagogue.
We originally commissioned you to make the foundation stone to the right of the front main entrance to the Synagogue and then to make a matching stone to commemorate the opening of the Synagogue by HRH the Prince of Wales which took place on 28 April 2003.
These two stones were sandblasted and we were all thrilled with what you achieved.
We then asked you to etch/sandblast the names of all the original Synagogue’s Rabbonim, Chazzans and Synagogue Officers from the time that The South Manchester Synagogue was first formed. We asked you to undertake this task on the toughened glass panels that were part of the balcony to the first floor hall.
You sandblasted hundreds of names into the glass panels, and the effect was really stunning.
If you ever need to show people examples of your work, please consider showing potential customers the work that you have undertaken at the Bowdon Synagogue.
You can always refer people to either Stephen Lindemann or myself for a very strong and warm recommendation.
