Stone carving of angel

We can personalise your memorial with designs that reflect the person being commemorated. We have a vast library of existing designs or for something unique, we can create a bespoke design.

Memorial Types

Headstones and memorials should reflect the people they commemorate and we will do all we can to help you achieve this. The range of materials and designs has greatly increased over the years and making the right choice can be a daunting task. This section illustrates a very small sample of the huge range of high quality memorials available, to see the full range, please view our brochure. A bespoke design service is also available.

Cemetery Memorials

There are many headstone shapes available. The more traditional ones have names taken from architectural forms such as ‘Ogee’, ‘Half-Ogee’ and ‘Peon’. Other popular shapes include ‘Oval’, ‘Square’, ‘Round’ and Half-Round’ but many more contemporary shapes are also available. For all of the memorials shown, materials, designs and ornamentation can be interchangeable.
