We offer a full monumental masonry service to Young, Grenfell and surrounding districts. We can supply a full range of granite monuments using a choice of local or imported stone in a variety of colours. Inscriptions can be engraved into the headstone or cast as a separate bronze plaque and mounted to the stone.
Colours include: light mottled grey, dark grey, black, red.
Our range of monuments includes:
Headstone only – a simple granite headstone mounted on a concrete foundation. Available in the full range of colours, they can be mounted upright or in a laid-back ‘pillow’ style.
Soldier Style – consisting of a concrete foundation, granite kerbs around the edge of the monument, an upright headstone and granite chips (pebbles) covering the grave. Available in a range of colours – looks most effective when the headstone is a contrasting colour.
Traditional style – popular style with granite kerbs covered by a full size granite slab. Once again, can be very striking when contrasting colours are used. Headstone can be upright or lay-back (thicker at the bottom than the top, sloping front).
Premium – similar to the Traditional but all horizontal faces have a split-rock finish. The granite components are generally thicker to achieve this effect making this the most expensive monument in our range.
We also provide a range of accessories to give your monument an individual style. These include:
Photo-ceramics: Photo printed on a ceramic plate, with or without a frame. Can be mounted on headstones including those in Lawn cemeteries.
Bronze plaques: Available in a range of sizes and styles, where a range of emblems can be added (e.g. crosses, Armed Forces insignia, Lodge symbols etc.)
Vases: Replacement chrome vases in a range of styles and sizes
Ornaments: A wide variety of monument ornaments including ceramic roses, marble crosses and porcelain statuettes
Monument Restoration Service
We are able to provide a complete cleaning and restoration for existing monuments and headstones.
Granite, concrete and tile finishes on monuments are treated to kill moss, mould and grime prior to being cleaned with high-pressure water.
Once cleaned, inscriptions on headstones can be repainted to highlight the lettering in more detail. Standard colours are black, white, yellow and grey. We use a special epoxy gloss enamel paint to ensure long life on the paint finish.
To ensure long-lasting refinishing to headstone inscriptions we offer a regilding service, where a very fine layer of pure gold is applied to the lettering. This finish looks better for far longer than standard paint finishes.
Repair & Replacement
We can repair or replace damaged granite or marble items on monuments, remove and recast damaged concrete components and remount fallen headstones and plaques.
