Memorial Plaque FAQs

What materials do you use for the memorial plaques?

We use either slate or granite stone, depending on which you choose when designing your plaque online. Both are natural materials which are durable and stand firm in all weather conditions.

How long is your lead time?

Our plaques and signs are handmade, with our average lead time being around 3-4 working days from the date you place your order. During peak periods such as the Christmas holidays this can be slightly longer.

Do you make grave plaques for pets?

We do. We have made plenty of pet memorials over the years, just let us know what you would like your plaque to say and any design requests you have and we can create it for you.

What fixings come with the plaques?

We have a range of fixings, including screws and wall plugs, hidden fixings, epoxy resin adhesive kits and wooden posts. If you wish to display your sign in a churchyard or public space, please be sure to check any local guidance on suitable fixings and materials for your area.

What are memorial plaques used for?

Memorial plaques can be used for many different things, such as to remember a loved one who has passed, to mark a grave for our beloved pets, or to commemorate an event such as planting an important tree.

Slate & Granite Memorial Plaques

Slate and granite are ideal for memorial plaques as they are natural yet hard-wearing materials. All of our memorials are available with a variety of fixing options to suit your requirements. Whether you require having pre-drilled holes and fixings supplied to place on a wall, or an un-drilled piece of stone to sit freely in your garden, you can choose your preference before you purchase your sign. We can also supply wooden posts if required too, just select the style of plaque from our product options before proceeding to personalise that sign.

What do memorial plaques say?

A memorial plaque should be personalised and meaningful, often citing words such as In Memory of, In Memoriam, in Remembrance of, Rest In Peace. They often include a name, as well as a date or dates for the person, pet or memory it is remembering.
