memorial headstones


I can source a large range of memorials made from materials such as granite, marble, limestone, slate and others. If you would like to consider all your options in your own time, I can supply a brochure enabling you to choose the exact style and material you want. I can also install the memorial to a high standard, ensuring it will remain as a fitting testimony to your loved one’s memory for years, decades, and potentially centuries to come.



memorial headstone needing restoring


I can restore weathered, damaged and broken memorials. I can also carry out replacements, duplicates and perform onsite installations. Many older memorials also require releveling, if the ground subsides underneath a memorial over time. As an experienced memorial stonemason in Essex, I can also regild inscriptions and engravings, bringing back a memorial to its former beauty.




inscribing memorial headstone


I can arrange to have a memorial inscribed using top-of-the-range inscription materials for a truly bespoke memorial. Many people like to add short poems, bible verses, or song lyrics to a memorial. There are many places where these epitaphs are listed to help you gain inspiration. I can also carry out additionals, where a family memorial, for example, requires extra inscriptions over time.








Finding the Right Memorial for Your Loved One

I can source headstones, statues, cremation memorials, and decorative memorials in a wide range of materials including granite, marble, limestone, slate, and bronze.

If you need assistance deciding on an inscription or a suitable material, I am also here to advise and offer a consultative service on this aspect, enabling you to find a fitting memorial that best suits your budget and personal preferences. All you have to do is contact myself via the handy fill-in form to get started.

A BRAMM registered memorial stonemason in Essex

The British Register of Accredited Memorial Masons is intended to ensure a uniform standard of workmanship across the industry, and to encourage ongoing training, improvement, and excellence in the field.

What to Consider when Buying a Funeral Memorial?

  • The type of stone or material used, the colour and the effect weathering may have.
  • The style of memorial you want, whether it is a headstone, a kerb memorial, a cremation memorial or a decorative memorial.
  • Choosing an inscription: it's impossible to sum up someone’s life in a single passage, but a short epitaph is a great personal addition to a memorial - it may be a lyric, bible verse or perhaps a poem.
  • Rules specific to the cemetery or churchyard – these may regulate the size and type of memorials allowed and the kinds of inscriptions permitted.
