Headstones, Plaques & Memorial Masonry

We will help you to select a memorial that is in keeping with the memory of person you have lost. We will also comply with the requirements of the cemetery or churchyard that you choose.

Our masons are experts in the field of masonry and engraving and have well over 40 years experience. We are experts in the repair and refurbishment of memorial headstones, plaques and other masonry. This means that we can help if memorials are chipped, damaged, vandalised or have generally suffered the ravages of time.

Our services include design and inscription and to make things easier, we will always help you with church yard or local authority paperwork, permits and permissions. When a burial is due to take place in an already occupied grave, we will arrange for the removal, safe storage and refitting of the original monument, leaving you with complete peace of mind.

Due to the extensive range of high quality granite, stone, hand-crafted headstone styles, kerb sets, picture plaques and vases that we carry, we recommend that you arrange an appointment to visit, view our brochures and discuss your requirements with our experts.

Ashes; Traditional Options

We can talk through and advise you on the options available, when considering what to do with ashes. Some of the more traditional choices for cremated ashes are:

  • Scattering in a Garden of Remembrance or similar area specifically dedicated by Leeds Bereavement Services or other local authority, for the placement of cremated remains.
  • Sikh and Hindu communities of Leeds are allowed to scatter ashes from a particular point on the banks of the River Aire, within the grounds of Kirkstall Abbey. This service is free of charge when using the facilities of the deceased's home local authority but charges may apply to use the provision of another local authority.
  • Strewing ie. the lifting of turf, sprinkling the ashes beneath and returning the turf to its original position. This is provided free of charge in Leeds.
  • Interment of ashes. This is a chargeable service in Leeds.
  • The purchase of a Sanctum 2000 (for the interment of ashes), which is then kept within the grounds of a Columbarium.
  • Scattering on private land or out at sea, having sought and received permission from the relevant land, waterways or harbour authority.
  • Ashes may be placed into a traditional or modern memorial ashes urn or divided and placed into a number of urns and given to loved ones and kept at home.
