about us

We will travel to any Cemetery within Southland to install new headstones, to do additional inscriptions or to do any restoration work. 


We offer a full restoration service including:

  • Re-silvering of faded inscriptions, this includes redoing in silver or gold.
  • Restoration of the Bronze plaques, which have discoloured over the years.
  • Water blasting of headstones and grave covers to remove moss etc.
  • Re-lettering of headstones & panels, which have fallen victim to the elements. 
  • We also offer our experience in resetting fallen monuments and repairing broken monuments due to vandalism.
  • Repairing old lead lettering that has fallen out due to the age of the headstones.

Please feel free to call into our showroom and have a look at some of the headstones we have on display. If you can't see what you would like please ask, we may have it in our storeroom, or it may need to be ordered for you.

If you have an additional inscription to be added to an existing headstone we will endeavour to match the fonts used on the original inscription.


If you would like a special headstone custom made we can arrange for this to be done. We also work in association with Carey McDowall at Escape Glass in the supply of Glass Headstones.
