We are pleased to be working in partnership with And Vinyly to offer bespoke vinyl records containing the ashes and/or recordings and images of a loved one.
And Vinyly have had the privilege of pressing ashes into vinyl since 2006. Founder and long time vinyl music producer Jason Leach was intrigued by the fact that audio can be literally felt as it moves the air and fascinated by the ability of sound to transport a listener immediately back to a particular place and time.
After contemplating how he himself might be remembered by his music, Jason felt that being pressed into his own record containing a bespoke compilation of audio and imagery would be a fitting memorial - a true ‘record’ in every sense of the word. He decided to make his idea a reality, And Vinyly was formed and today hundreds of And Vinyly records are treasured across the globe.
An And Vinyly record is a tangible compilation of treasured memories that can be seen as well as heard. Jason and Harriette from And Vinyly (with decades of experience in sound production and graphic design respectively), alongside Westerleigh colleagues, will be on hand to guide you every step of the way throughout the process.
The first step is the collation of the content. This can be collaborative and is, we have learned, often a cathartic experience, with friends and family contributing photographs and words, voicemails, answerphone messages and recordings of special times.
