Gravestone renovations

Our headstones and memorials are crafted from the finest materials.  However, over the years, they may be impacted by weather erosion. The sun, wind, and rain all taking their toll. Natural stones, especially those that are more porous, can become marked, weathered, and dirty. Inscriptions can also fade and will require re-gilding, repainting, or re-cutting. We, therefore, offer a complete renovation and repair service in order to keep your memorial looking pristine.

As members of the National Association of Memorial Masons (NAMM), you can be confident that all our work will be carried out to the highest standard. Clients are often so amazed by the finished result they can’t believe it’s the same headstone.

We recommend that masonry such as granite memorials are wiped over with a damp cloth a few times a year, but take care not to rub the letters.  Soft stones may be carefully scrubbed with a soft brush and water.

With memorials having a long and informative history, creating a fitting tribute to a loved one that is intended to last a lifetime might seem like a daunting task, however, we’re happy to assist you in choosing the right memorial that will honour your loved one, whilst still meeting churchyard and cemetery regulations.
