About Us

Artisan Memorials – Memorial Stonemason

Artisan Memorials Ltd is a family run business driven and inspired by the life long passion for lettering and calligraphy of its founder Kent Stonemason Mark Brooks.

Mark has over 30 years experience as a professional Letter Carver and Monumental Mason.

He has an extensive catalogue of public works and regularly teaches letter carving and calligraphy.

He is supported by his close family who share a passion for fine workmanship and customer service.

Together they offer a sensitive, compassionate and reliable service which truly delivers the highest quality memorials available in the UK today.

Artisan Memorials – Headstones, Gravestones and Memorials

Stonemason carving letters into stone

Our deeply carved inscriptions will last for centuries.

We design each memorial individually in consultation with our clients.

We use the wonderful range of natural stone available in the UK.

Artisan Memorials Alphabet

We put good design at the very heart of everything we do.

We believe that the arrangement and design of the lettering can be expressive and offers the chance to evoke something about the person being commemorated.

Our lettering is V carved – the traditional technique for inscribing stone, which creates a sculptural, three dimensional quality that elevates the memorial and ensures the inscriptions last for centuries.

We offer a range of bespoke memorials including Headstones and Commemorative Plaques.

Call or email us to discuss your thoughts and ideas. We are able to offer advice on all aspects of your memorial.
