Customised Gravestones: Crafting Memories

Custom headstones aren't just markers; they're personal tributes. Each one we create is unique, echoing the individuality of the loved one it honours. You can choose any wording, with options like White, Black, 23.5ct Gold Leaf, or Silver inscriptions to make the tribute truly personal​​.

Choosing the Right Material

The material of the headstone significantly influences its cost. Our range includes Black Granite, Grey Granite, Blue Lagoon, Pandora, and more. Each material not only has a different aesthetic appeal but also varies in durability and maintenance needs​​.

Understanding the Costs

Our Custom headstone prices start at €999. This price includes both lettering and fittings, providing a cost-effective yet quality option for those on a budget​​. But remember, the cost can vary widely based on size, design complexity, and the type of material you choose.

Personal Touch: Design and Inscriptions

The design and inscriptions are where you can truly make the headstone your own. From simple, heartfelt messages to intricate designs and artworks, these elements play a key role in reflecting the essence of your loved one. But they also influence the price, with more complex designs and longer inscriptions costing more.

Additional Considerations

  • Installation and Maintenance: Sometimes overlooked, these costs can add up. Ensure you understand what's included in the initial cost and what might be extra.
  • Legal and Cemetery Regulations: Different cemeteries have regulations about what type of headstones are allowed. It's important to check these beforehand to avoid any unforeseen costs or complications.
  • Timeframes: Custom headstones take time to create. Plan ahead to ensure the headstone is ready when you need it.
