Slate corian engraved plaque.

Stone-like Corian Memorial Plaques
A modern material with a cold stone like finish. It is perfect for memorial plaques in that it is very durable, fade proof and virtually maintenance free. It comes in a variety of colours. It also has the advantage of being able to engrave and paint fill, small letters. It can even be cut into unusual shapes. Full colour inlays made from tough anodised aluminium are also available if required.


Acrylic laminate memorial plaque mounted on a wooden backing board.

Good Value Laminate Memorial Plaques
These signs are ideal for maintenance free memorial plaques. They are very durable - made from 2 ply 3mm exterior grade flexible acrylic which is weather proof and UV resistant. The letters are engraved through the first layer of laminate to show the colour underneath. Lots of colour options are available, all of which are attractive, especially if mounted on a wooden backing board.


Stone wedges available in granite or slate.

Memorial Wedges - Granite & Slate
These slate & granite wedges or plinths are 100mm at the back and 50mm at the front. This provides a sloping plinth to mount a corian, engraved brass or bronze plaque. Alternatively we can engrave the lettering directly into the granite or slate. Good value standard sizes plus bespoke sizes as required.


Engraved wooden memorial cross.

Engraved Wooden Crosses
The beautifully made wooden cross are available in four sizes. They are hand made in oak. Lettering and images can be lasered directly into the wood or onto a plate which is mounted onto the cross.

Stone-Like Corian Crosses

Heart shaped memorial plaque.

Heart Shaped Memorials
Heart shaped memorials and memorial plaques can be made in black or grey granite, cast bronze and aluminium, oak or iroko wood and corian in any one of the stone colours. There are a number of standard sizes and the corian or wood can be cut to any size.
Wood or metal stakes are also available.


War Memorial.

War Memorials
We can make a war memorial in any of the materials we use. The cast bronze is superb, very long lasting but the most expensive. For smaller plaques the hand paint zinc with raised letters is somewhat similar, again very long lasting and very effective. Brass plaques are still very popular, with the 3 mm option being the most appropriate. Engraved stone-like corian is more often used than stone itself as we can engrave with more detail than is possible with real stone. New to scene of war memorials are the engraved wooden tablets. The plaque in the image was made from Cast Polyurethane.


Wooden Ashes Casket with an engraved plaque.

Wooden Caskets & Urns
Our wooden caskets and urns have been designed for cremated ashes. They are beautifully made from solid oak or mahogany and can be supplied with or without an engraved plaque.  These can be brass, aluminium or acrylic laminate memorial plaques. The wooden caskets are perfect for those wanting to keep the ashes of a loved one, although they are also used when burying ashes in a cemetery. They are the most appropriate type of urn for this type of memorial event.


Wrought iron tree stake with wooden backing board.

Backing Boards and Wooden Crosses
We can supply backing boards in various timbers on which to mount your memorial plaque. When ordering your backing board we would suggest it should be 25mm large than the plaque in height and width.

Tree Stakes
We have a good range of tree stakes available. These include simple wrought iron tree stakes to modern angle iron with a security pin for mounting into concrete. There are also wooden tree stakes and plaque holders for larger memorial plaques.
