We’ve been told many times that buying a memorial is one of the hardest things to do as it’s so personal. Our purpose is to work with you and guide you into deciding on a fitting memorial that reflects the character of the person it’s for.  This could be a particular colour, there are many to choose from, or the inscription, or even a particular design such as a flower, animal or bird, all of which can enhance the appearance and personal nature of the headstone.

 

headstone memorials engraving angels

An example of our recent work.

The above Angel Headstone is one of the finest memorials we have ever been asked to produce and one we are very proud of. It was based on a design that had only the woman standing to the side, there were no wings. However our client specifically wanted an angel incorporated in the memorial and so after some thought  and to our clients delight we managed to adapt it accordingly.

The material used is Black Granite and the angel itself is handcarved, a truly magnificent monument. However if you want to see it in person you’ll have to travel to the middle of the Atlantic  where, after the inscription had been added, it was shipped to St. Helena ( for historians this is the same island where Napoleon Bonaparte finished his days).

If you have a specific idea of a memorial in mind but are finding it difficult to take it to the next level do not hesitate to contact us for a consultation. We are here to help.
