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.

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.
