Repairing headstones is an art unto itself. Stone has be cleaned using an intensive process which removes dirt and build ups of moss and lichen. Natural brightness is restored through this process. Chips and cracks are harder to repair and on occasion, the headstone will have be lifted from its foundation. Invisible repairs are possible, though, and often, we can return a headstone to its original condition.

How are cemetery monuments made?

Early tombstones were made from slate which is still a popular choice today. Beautiful pieces of slate can be retained in their natural form and enscripted for a minimalist but beautiful and elegant headstone. Granite, however, is the most common stone for headstone creation though marble is also popular as these stones are hardwearing and weather-proof. The stones are quarried from quarries worldwide before being cut into shape and then polished using a series of intensive techniques. Epitaphs, or scriptures, are then cut into the stone.
