There are any number of shapes and materials used in making headstones for graves in West Kirby. It takes an expert stone mason to create a truly magnificent stone. Our firm is run by the family of David Williams who is the only hand letter cutter in Wirral and is a fully time served stone mason. In this day and age technology can do most things but it cannot design and invent beautiful objects. We have six other craftsmen who help with the creation of a truly memorable memorial stone. With over 50 years in the industry there is not much we do not know about creating and manufacturing memorials.
There are many different stones that are used in creating a headstone and the choice is largely up to the family members. In West Kirby, headstones for graves are used to show love and respect for a beloved family member and to mark their final resting place. One of the most popular stones is granite. This stone is very durable and resistant to weather and offers one of the longest life spans of any stone. It comes in a wide range of colours and can be polished to a perfect shine. Marble is also very popular but is a slightly softer stone that can be more easily carved. It is usually a translucent white with occasional veins of colour running through it.
We have a wide range of sentimental designs for headstones for graves in West Kirby. All our stones have enough space for a personal inscription. A double headstone will have space for both the inscriptions and we will keep to the same font and design for the second inscription. Contact Birkenhead Monumental today or visit our showroom to see the wide range of stones and designs we have on offer. We are quite able to create a unique headstone of your own design of any stone you choose. We can also put military badges and emblems on the stone with the inscription.
