Our Services


Inscriptions are a huge part of the headstone process. They are the message that appears on the headstone. The message is hugely important as it represents the life and death of the individual that has passed away. There are so many different ways you can incorporate an inscription into the headstone, depending on what kind of message you want on there.

Here are some of the most common inscription phrases:

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

Of course, you can include any message you wish. Many people choose to use their own personal message as this makes the headstone more unique and memorable for the family and friends of the deceased. Our team can help you with the selection of the message you need any help or advice.


We also offer a range of headstone services to ensure your headstone is maintained and looked after. Our aftercare service is perfect if you do not always have the time to visit the headstone yourself. This package will make sure your memorial is kept in pristine condition and is tended to by our experienced craftsmen. If you need insurance for your memorial then we can also help with that. We can issue a policy that protects your memorial for 5 years, in case of any damage or issues.


The team at South Wales Monuments will look after you throughout the process. We understand that it can be an extremely difficult time for everyone when dealing with the loss of a loved one. We aim to make this as easy as possible for you through our honest workmanship and kind attitude.

Our craftsmen will work closely alongside you to ensure that the headstone design is perfect. There are many different elements that make up the design of a headstone. From the colour to the material, you’ll want to consult with our craftsmen on your preferences. All headstones are customisable and we can create something individual.
