Inscriptions & verses

We recognise that deciding on an appropriate inscription can sometimes be a difficult choice. We have a wealth of experience and a range of examples for you to view. These can often help provide inspiration and help you to form your ideas. We will work with you to create an inscription that is both personal and a fitting tribute.

Lettering styles

Originally all lettering was hand cut, each individual letter was crafted by a skilled stone mason. Today the process is aided by computer which creates a stencil, this is then placed onto the memorial and sandblasted, the inscription is then finished by using paint, lead or gild in the traditional way.

Below are the typical styles available, some styles are not appropriate for certain finishes (and some finishes are not suitable for certain stones), we will advise you which is best for your requirements.

We have also carried out work involving Chinese, Arabic and Jewish lettering, we are happy to reproduce any alphabet you require.
