High Quality Headstones
Handcrafted, High Quality Headstones, Gravestones and Memorials.
At Hertfordshire Headstones, we understand the importance of honouring your loved one appropriately after they have passed. Our high quality headstones, gravestones and memorial plaques are therefore handcrafted from the finest choice of stone and feature V-carved lettering for a premium, authentic memorial that will serve as a beautiful reminder of your loved one for years to come.
The words you choose to mark your loved one’s passing with are of great importance, something that is attested to by the amount of thought that goes into choosing them. It is therefore fitting to choose the most authentic method to engrave them with. V-carving produces intricate, highly detailed results and can be used to create both complex and simple designs to the best effect.
Why choose a stonemason for memorials?
A skilled stonemason with an artist’s eye is able to judge letters and spacing in a way that a computer simply can’t. We believe that the uniqueness of a person’s life should be captured in the uniqueness of their memorial, something that is less achievable through methods such as sandblasting.
Sandblasting is a common method for tombstone lettering that has become the norm due to its affordability. However, to achieve a high quality finish, V-carving is always recommended for the engraving of headstones and memorial plaques. Because of the techniques we use and the knowledge we have of our art, we are able to create bespoke, premium products at a highly competitive price.
By putting good design and expert craftsmanship at the heart of everything we do, we are able to create beautiful, personal memorials to suit the individual needs of our clients. By listening to your description of the deceased and your wishes for how you would like them to be remembered, we can advise you on the perfect design to suit your needs.
Knowledge and Expertise.
We are a family run business. As talented stonemasons, we are knowledgeable about the different types of stone, their individual properties and where to source the highest quality raw materials from. We are experts at working with a wide range of stones sourced from within the UK and Europe, including Welsh Slate, Yorkshire Sandstone, Dorset Limestone. We also work with Granite and Marble.
The best stones and suppliers.
Stonemasonry is our craft and therefore we are discerning when it comes to the choice of stone that we use, always opting for stones sourced from the UK and Europe, over those sourced from further afield. We are fully acquainted with our suppliers and prefer to work only with materials that we are fully knowledgeable about. We always endeavour to use the highest quality raw materials possible in our work.
Mark did an amazing job with my mother’s gravestone; we wanted a beautiful gravestone for her and I can’t recommend Mark highly enough. He is a true artist with a great eye for typography and design. Having seen suggestions from two other companies before approaching Mark, Mark’s design was pretty much perfect straight away and the end result of how the carved letters and a carved scallop shell look on the slate stone is truly beautiful. Mark is very easy to work with, and he also went above and beyond, helping us with the paperwork and liaising with the cemetery over the installation – he is also a perfectionist throughout and installed the stone beautifully. Moreover, he is also a really great guy to work with and that really helps when commissioning a gravestone for a loved one. Thank you Mark for our beautiful memorial stone.
