Slate Memorials, Plaques and Tablets

Although we make hundreds of these smaller memorial plaques every year, we take great care to make sure your slate memorial is made just the way you want it. These plaques have a timeless quality and are usually made with unpainted lettering, sandblasted into the slate.  However we can paint the letters. Black looks very effective. We can also use White, Farrow & Ball Purbeck Stone (light grey) Farrow & Ball Lichen (light green) Gold and Silver.

Line borders can be included.

For smaller memorial plaques we normally use slate which is 12mm or 20mm thick. This can be cut to any size. If you want your slate memorial on thicker slate we have 30mm, 50mm and 75mm available. For a darker finish we can oil the slate. This does tend to hide the natural stone makings. If you want less features in the slate you might want to consider Welsh Slate - many say it is the best slate in the world.

We can add a line border with indented or square corners at a cost of £6.95. Another interesting technique is the border in relief where the slate around the outside of the sign is blasted away leaving the required shape in the middle. The cost of a border in relief is £8.95. Decorative borders also available - the cost is £10.95. The prices shown are for signs with a circumference of less than 1500mm

We can include images and even photos on the memorial. We have a selection CLICK HERE - or you can send in your own. If you have nothing appropriate ask our designer to find one for you. Simple images are deep engraved and painted with the letters. Detailed images and photos are laser engraved onto oiled slate.. Another option is to add a full colour weather proof plaque. We inset the plaque into the slate and create a border around it the same colour as the lettering.
