Masonry - headstones & Cremation Memorials
A memorial is a lasting symbol of remembrance, a tribute to a life now ended, perhaps a final gift to someone dearly loved. We work with you on an individual basis to create a bespoke memorial that will accurately reflect the personality of your loved one. Memorials can be made from a wide range of materials (such as granite, sandstone, marble and limestone) and colours to create an elegant and personalised tribute. We can provide headstones, kerbs and cover slabs, and cremation memorials.

Something to consider when you’re arranging a funeral is the venue itself.
For many people they’re clear that the place to gather will be the crematorium, or the church and crematorium or cemetery. But for others the time constraints and the feel of those places can feel restrictive.
On other occasions you may want somewhere for friends and family to congregate before or after the service.
We’ve helped many families to find the venue which feels right, and which enables them to take the time they need to say their goodbye.
Knowing that you don’t have to fit everything into a half hour slot before moving on to let the next group of mourners in can relieve a great deal of pressure. It can also work out more cheaply if you’re prepared to consider different ideas.
Whether or not we arrange the location for you, if you want to provide some sort of refreshment on the day we are happy to recommend reliable local caterers.
