Materials have been selected from all over the world to bring you this complete range of individual memorials.
Granite memorials are available in subtle colour variations and have ageless beauty and durability. The hard nature of granite lends itself to etching and sandblasting techniques upon its hard surface to create unique designs.
Marble memorials have been the choice of sculptors for centuries. Using the unique carving properties allowed by its soft and porous composition, diverse and attractive designs can be produced. Maintenance and discolouration should be taken into consideration when selecting this stone type. The speed of weathering can be reduced by using water and a stiff brush to take the surface dirt off the memorial.
‘Stone’ memorials are widely used in Churchyards. They are generally ‘soft’ stones like marble and can therefore be carved with great effect. They provide an alternative for clients who prefer the more traditional charm of stones from British quarries.
The addition of a symbolic emblem by way of carving or etching can transform a simple headstone into a meaningful representation of a loved one’s life. The shaping of the stone and the wording used can express feelings of emotion, or sum up a lifetime’s achievements.
All the stones are naturally formed over thousands of years. Every stone exhibits slightly different markings enhancing the beauty and character of each piece.
The following are just a selection of the stones shown on the website. Other stone types are available.
