Our Services


One of the main parts of a headstone is the message that it provokes. Your headstone can incorporate a variety of different messages and text and represent the person the headstone is for. The life of the person is normally summed up using a variety of different text and images that are engraved onto the headstone.

The most common inscriptions include:

  • Gone, but not forgotten
  • In loving memory of…
  • RIP
  • Always in our hearts
  • Entered into rest
  • Forever in our hearts

Most people choose to customise their headstone with a personalised message. If you would like some inspiration or ideas for inscriptions then please speak to your stonemason or one of the team and they will be able to help.


We offer comprehensive plans to ensure our customers’ headstones and memorials are protected. If you find that you don’t have enough time to visit your loved one’s headstone and to maintain it, we can do this for you. Our aftercare package resolves all of this and we will keep your memorial in pristine condition. Expert craftsmen will tend to your memorial and make sure it is looking as good as new.

On top of this, you may also want to consider insurance for the memorial. Your headstone is valuable and therefore it is important that you know it is in good hands. Our insurance policy will protect your headstone for 5 years, and this can be renewed once the 5 years has ended.


As well as providing a compassionate & professional service, we also have a great team on-board. We have several highly experienced stonemasons who know exactly how to create the perfect headstone. Before hand-crafting the headstone, it goes through a rigorous design process to make sure you are totally happy with it.

Once the design has been confirmed, the stonemason can begin crafting your headstone. We only use the best quality materials for our headstones. Materials include granite, marble, sandstone and much more. If you have any specific requirements for your headstone in terms of material and design, please do not hesitate to speak to one of the team.

The headstone can incorporate virtually anything you need for it. Accessories are available on our website and we can even create a bespoke design for you. Our bespoke services allow the customer to customise their headstone to suit the individual requirements. With various experienced stonemasons, we can craft a high-quality headstone for your loved one.
