Granite Headstones

Granite


Granite is quarried from a variety of countries and vary greatly in colour and price. The main colours available are in Red, Black, Blue and Grey but more unusual colours and shades are becoming popular. Granite is normally more expensive than marble and may be double the price in some designs as it is a difficult material to shape and cut. This hardness ensures that the memorial is almost maintenance free as polished granite can not be stained and only requires a wet wipe with a sponge to restore the material to its original condition. Leaded letters can not be fitted into this material and instead the engravings are simply sandblasted on by machine and painted, often in gold, to stand out.

Granite Headstones (continued)

We are pleased to offer a comprehensive memorial service, and show a selection of the most popular polished granite and marble memorials available which also comply with most cemetery regulations. We can arrange for additional inscriptions to, and renovations of, existing memorials.

All shapes of tops of headstones and designs are interchangeable, and parts of several designs can be incorporated into one. Alternatively, individually-designed memorials are available.

Marble Headstones

Marble


Quarried in Carrara, North West Italy, this material is classically white to blue-white in colour and veined with darker blue/grey markings. Marble can also be seen in a darker blue/grey colour called Dove grey marble. The main advantage of marble is that it can be carved and shaped by hand to produce attractive and intricate designs. Leaded letters can also be fitted into the stone and these are the most permanent form of engraving as they normally last for up to 20 years without need of treatment. Marble is a long lasting stone but it should be cleaned periodically to reduce the effects of weathering as the pores of the stone can soak up dirt. It is for this reason, that marble stones should never be fixed on graves that lie beneath trees or bushes, as leaves and bird droppings will leave permanent stains.

Granite Kerbsets

Kerb surrounds are the most effective way of enclosing either a grave space or cremation plot. We can make a kerb surround to fit almost any memorial where cemetary regulations allow their installation. Of course the memorials shown are also available without the kerbs.

Granite Kerbsets Continued

Kerb surrounds can be installed with an optional cover slab in the same material if required, providing a truly maintenance free solution. Alternatively we have chippings available in a wide range of colours to complement your chosen memorial stone colour.

Vases

A vase can be used to compliment a headstone perhaps being inscribed to add a personal message from another member of the family. They can be used as markers for cremation plots either as a stand alone in place of a cremation stone or as is commanly seen as an addition to a family burial plot where ashes have been interned within the same grave.
