Considerations when designing a memorial.

Types of Stone

Often when designing a memorial the type of stone used is the first consideration. We offer a wide range of stones sourced locally without the environmental cost of importing from across the globe.

Our most popular stones can be seen here, however we make memorials in Clashach Sandstone from Scotland, Purbeck Limestone from Dorset, Saint Bees Sandstone from Cumbria, Caithness Stone from Scotland, as well as granite and marble.

All of our stones are carefully selected for their suitability for the UK climate and each has its own qualities and characteristics, which we can explain before you decide.

Headstones and Grave Stones Shapes


We put memorial design at the heart of everything we do. We believe that inscriptions are the most important aspect of your memorial and work with you to arrive at a letter style that is appropriate, unique and sympathetic to the person being remembered.
