Handcrafted Headstones, Gravestones and Memorial Plaques.

At Hertfordshire Headstones, we understand the importance of honouring your loved one appropriately after they have passed.

Our headstones, grave stones 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 in the heart of London.

Established in the 1854, St. Pancras Cemetery was the first municipally owned cemetery in London. Established a time when London’s population was rapidly expanding, clear land was sort on what was then the outskirts of the city, on Finchley Common in Barnet, north London. Further land was acquired in 1877, and the 190-acre site was divided between St. Pancras and the neighbouring brough of Islington, to form two cemeteries.

St Pancras and Islington is the third-largest single cemetery serving London, and in burial numbers, it is the largest in the UK with around one million interments and cremations. The cemetery is designated Grade II* on the English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England.

We braved the weather to visit the grave on Sunday and the headstone looks fantastic. Mark has done a wonderful job, and we as a family can’t thank him enough – a truly unique headstone with the tree carved on the back and the wonderfully carved wording on the front.
I hope that you get many more commissions from others who see the headstone or via a recommendation from the vicar at the church.
Thanks again for all your help – I am so pleased that I came across Artisan Memorials – it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you.
Very best wishes,

Will – Little Gaddesden Hertfordshire

They completely understood what we were looking for and exceeded all our expectations with the design and their sensitive approach. We chose a Yorkshire Sandstone with a simple inscription and it’s just perfect. We are really happy with it. Highly recommended.
