Headstones & Plaques – Our services

Headstones & Plaques – Our services

We work directly with families to assist them in choosing a design that represents the life of their loved one. Stone is a relic of the oldest ages of our planet and thus worthy of being a symbol of remembrance of those we love.
.
Coming from a deep tradition of European stonemasonry, we are experienced memorial masons and sculptors with all the equipment and know-how necessary to do the job. We work with you to create headstones, memorials and monuments which emphasise taste, individuality and creativity. We know many forms and shapes not available on the standard market.
.
Our installations are secure and versatile: memorials made to last for centuries.
