About Memorials

For centuries, the timeless beauty of certain types of stone has made them the esteemed choice for commemorating and marking the last resting place of those departed from this life.

Through the passing years, memorial patterns have changed although you will always find many traditional features retained in modern designs.
We have tried to present a range from well-proportioned, simple designs to the distinctive and original. We hope it will help you choose the memorial to perpetuate your cherished memories.

As stone is a natural product, colouring can vary. Stone colouring is reproduced as accurately as technical processes will allow.

Our choice for permanent memorialisation provides you and your family a lasting focal point for healing and strength.  Whether you decide on a memorial at home, a special area at the cemetery, or a ceremonial or complete scattering, or a combination of these, it's an on-going expression of love in the celebration of a beautiful life.
