A personal letter from our General Manager:
Hi, I’m Aidan Cosgrove and I am the General Manager of the Memorial Card Company. My brother John and I have run the family business since our father proudly took a back seat in 2005. Since Dad started the business back in 1984, we have been going from strength to strength, with Memorial Cards being a mainstay of our product range. In 2009 we started our new venture, The Memorial Card Company, which we are proud to say was the first website in the world that allowed customers to order memorial gift ideas online from the comfort of their own home. Since then we are your expert in Memorial Cards Ireland, Memorial Cards Belfast, Memorial Cards Dublin, Memorial Cards Cork, Memorial Cards Galway and extended our business reaching Memorial Cards UK, Memorial Cards Europe and Memorial Cards USA with FREE delivery within Ireland & UK and a fast and reliable service to the rest of the world for a small delivery fee. We extended our range to Pet Memorial Gifts, Dog Memorial Gifts, Cat Memorial Gifts - as we understand that they too are part of your family.
Our website provides you with a step-by-step guide to ease you through the ordering process of our Memorial Products, from designing your card to choosing and seeing a proof. We acknowledge and understand the importance of the personal approach during times of loss and bereavement. We unfortunately lost our stepmother, who was very dear to all our family, through cancer, which helped to further bring home to us how important the human touch is through these difficult and sensitive times. If you would prefer to speak to one of our customer service team, please do not hesitate to contact us by email, telephone or via post.
I would like to thank you for taking the time to read this short introduction and for considering trusting us with this responsibility. Together we can craft a beautiful and lasting memorial to your loved one that you and those close to you will be sure to appreciate.
