Cemetery Headstones

If you’re looking to have a bespoke headstone created as a fitting tribute to a departed loved one, Artisan Memorials can help. We understand that it’s important to celebrate the uniqueness of an individual through the design and layout of a headstone, which is why our expert stonemason will work with you to create a number of different designs for you to choose from, so you can select the one that best represents the departed’s character.

While the design is important, gravestones must be well built and robust if they are to be a lasting memorial for a loved one. Our gravestones, whether they be made from Welsh slate or Portland Limestone, are always crafted from responsibly-sourced stone of the highest quality, so you can rest assured that the finished product we create for you will last for decades with minimal upkeep required.

If you would like to talk with our stonemason about a particular headstone design you have in mind, please contact us. We have been creating cemetery gravestones and cemetery headstones for customers throughout the country for years, but we are based around Canterbury, Ashford and Maidstone.

Detail

Once you call or email us your initial requirements, we will be in touch with you to set up a time to discuss your needs in detail. We have many years of experience in the creation of top quality headstones, gravestones and memorial plaques, and will be more than happy to talk you through the best options for honouring your loved one. All of our memorials are bespoke, so feel free to make any request, no matter how unique! We can advise you on practical matters such as stone types, wording and the design of your memorial. Our years of experience mean we have a catalogue of our previous work, so there will always be examples to illustrate your different options.

Sketching

Choices

Following your consultation, we will create a series of sketches to give you a look at your options. It is one thing to discuss certain materials or lettering types, and another thing to see what they look like in sketch form. That is why we will give you several options to choose from as a starting point for your design. We will develop your chosen design, consulting with you all the way, until we reach the final choice. You will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and alter your gravestone design. We want to make sure you are completely happy with your design before proceeding to the next stage.

Local Materials

V-Carve

Once we have worked together to reach a final design, we order the stone direct from the quarry and begin work on your memorial. Where possible, we choose stone from the United Kingdom, minimising the environmental impact of our work and ensuring the materials are suited to the British climate. In most instances we V-carve our lettering rather than sandblasting them, giving our memorials a timelessly elegant, professional finish. With Artisan Memorials, you know you are getting an excellent service throughout each and every step of the process. We take the hassle out of the process by making sure the memorial fits all of the requirements of the cemetery or churchyard it is destined for. We can handle all of the associated paperwork.

    Kate - London

    From start to finish, Mark provided an outstanding service in order to create a beautiful, thoughtful and lasting memorial. The care and attention to detail has made the experience so much easier. We did not want an "out of the catalogue" type memorial, and especially not a modern shiny/granite type stone. I was breath taken to see the timeless and loving memorial Mark created. We cannot thank you enough, you are extremely talented!

    Frank - St.Albans

    Working with David from Artisan Memorials was an absolute pleasure, the process was easy and the final stone was absolutely beautiful, exactly the result we wanted to remember our much loved Mum, I can’t recommend them enough, the quality of the workmanship was outstanding!

    Linda - London

    My bother, sister and I are so pleased with the headstone for my mum and dad that David and Mark crafted. We went to them with ideas, but we did know that we didn’t want a run-of-the-mill headstone. They dedicated time and brought to bear their expertise to marry their craftsmanship to our ideas. I know my mum and dad would love the headstone that marks their last resting place. Thanks Mark and David.

    Elise - Milton Keynes

    I have no hesitation in recommending Artisan Memorials - David and Mark were a pleasure to work with the headstone they created for my parents and grandparents were beautiful works of art. They went out of their way to help and support us and the results were perfect. Thank you!

    James - Canterbury

    Excellent service and quality of workmanship. Mark’s attention to detail was fantastic and he handled the whole process with a kindness and humour mum would have loved. Highly recommended.

    Lawrence - Hertfordshire

    We looked for ages but all we could find were mass produced headstones with basic lettering. We wanted something more individual and in keeping with mother’s memory. It was such a relief to find Mark. Our headstone is beautiful. Very highly recommended.

    Edward - St.Albans

    We had Mum’s headstone made using nabresina by Artisan Memorials and it is a truly wonderful work of art. Mark is an absolutely masterful craftsman. We have since had our house name carved into Welsh slate as we were so pleased. We cannot praise Mark enough and wouldn’t hesitate recommending him to anyone wanting beautifully engraved stone and who appreciates friendly and professional service.
