“Mark did an amazing job with my mother’s gravestone; we wanted a beautiful gravestone for her and I can’t recommend Mark highly enough. He is a true artist with a great eye for typography and design”
Celeste – London
“Excellent service and quality of workmanship. Mark’s attention to detail was fantastic and he handled the whole process with a kindness and humour mum would have loved. Highly recommended“
James – Canterbury
“We looked for ages but all we could find were mass produced headstones with basic lettering. We wanted something more individual and in keeping with mother’s memory. It was such a relief to find Mark. Our headstone is beautiful. Very highly recommended ”
