Our Services


Designing a headstone couldn’t be easier at South Wales Monuments. We have various skilled memorial designers who will ensure that your headstone design is perfect. When designing a memorial, you want to make sure that the design fits the mood and personality of your loved one.

You can speak to our designers about any ideas that you have and they will do their best to incorporate these ideas into the design. We have many years of experience in designing headstones and make sure that you are entirely happy with your design before going ahead with the manufacturing side of things.

There are many different elements to designing a headstone which includes materials, inscriptions, colours, accessories and more. Popular materials for headstones include granite, marble, sandstone and much more. The material is important is it will form the basis of the headstone and its colouring, as well as ensuring that it’s going to be durable. All of these elements are important for the finished product.

Headstones can easily be personalised. We offer various different methods such as inscriptions and accessories. Inscriptions are normally classified as the message or writing that is put on a headstone. This will normally be organised by the family or friends of the deceased but if you ever require any assistance, please feel free to ask one of the team. Accessories are also available such as ornaments, figures and vases. These can be added to the memorial or combined to provide a much more comprehensive end product.


We understand that not everyone has time to visit the cemetery where their loved one was buried, which is why we offer aftercare services. Our memorial aftercare package will ensure that the headstone or memorial stays in pristine condition whilst it is in the churchyard or cemetery. The package provides you with excellent maintenance for the memorial, as well as experienced craftsmen who will look after you.

We also offer insurance for all memorials and headstones at an affordable price. Memorials are valuable and we would highly recommend that you insure them, in case of any damages in the future. Our insurance policies can safeguard your memorial for 5 years. This insurance can be purchased on the same day as your memorial, ready to start on the same day it is fitted.


After you’ve chosen the design you want, our team will help you select the finish, size and shape of the headstone or memorial. We’ll also work with you on the wording for the inscription, the style, colour and font. Our team will make the process simple and hassle-free. Whatever you have in mind, we will do our best to create for you. 

Remember, the choice is entirely up to you. So, let us know if you have an idea, and we’ll do our best to make it a reality.
