Memorials

Stone Cross Purbeck Stone is a natural limestone that is extremely durable and hard-wearing and well suited tomemorial work. Effigies, ledger stones and headstones have been worked in Purbeck for centuries and our southern cathedrals and churchyards bear testimony to this heritage from mediaeval times to the present day.

The memorial trade forms a considerable part of our work using the Thornback, Grub and Freestone and Blue Feather beds of stone. We supply to individuals as well as to the trade.
