Gravestones & Gravestone Inscriptions
Information on Gravestones:
A tombstone or gravestone refers to an entire monument which usually includes a headstone, base, socket, front, back, sides, and a slab. As with all our memorials, we have a wide selection of designs, ranging from basic to highly intricate gravestones, which can be customised to match your requirements.

Quality regarding Gravestones:
Granite: Although granite is the best material for outdoor conditions, like with any product there are varying levels of quality. Poor quality grades of granite are prone to cracking, staining, and rusting because these stones tend to absorb more moisture. This is without mentioning they look poor.
- Warning: Offering poor quality granite is a ‘sales trick’ that some monumental masons use. They are able to charge a much lower price for the ‘same’ gravestone, when competing with an ethical monumental mason who provides quality granite. In reality the customer is not only being cheated and misled, but also overcharged! Consider the future costs of renovating or replacing the tombstone when it becomes damaged.
Masonry: Having a qualified and skilled monumental mason is crucial to a quality memorial. Our team of masons produce the highest quality workmanship, adhering to all Australian Cemetery Standards. These standards relate to materials, thickness of granite, and foundations. We also are a member of the Monumental Masons’ Association of NSW, which attempts to protect the interests of customers from unethical mason practices.
- Take a long- term view! Buy quality memorials that will last.
Our skilled monumental masons guarantee excellent work with durable quality granite that will stand the test of time. We take a long-term perspective, relying on positive word-of-mouth from our customers, which has served us well for more than fifty years.
