Peace of Mined

Hand carved Welsh slate, stone & wood

Home Commissions Memorials

 We create beautiful creatively designed and hand carved rustic memorials, something different from the traditional highly polished granite headstones. We have successfully designed, carved and installed headstones in Machynlleth and Aberdovey cemeteries and can do so in other cemeteries in Powys. We liaise with the council and complete the necessary applications and permissions on your behalf, and can guide you through the process. When installing our rustic headstones we follow the regulations of the particular cemetery and work to NAMMN standards, although we are not a registered member of any such body. Ceredigion County Council requires installers to be BRAMM registered (the cost of which exceeds our means!) but we can arrange installation by our local Monumental Memorial company for installation in Aberystwyth cemeteries for example. We tend to create headstones which are for cemeteries only in our local area (Mid Wales and west Wales) for logistical reasons, although for other types of commission we regularly deliver work further afield. 

For advice on choice of materials, carving techniques, our design service, delivery, fixing methods and prices, please see our Information section.

As well as the examples here, we can create just about anything which involves carving words, decorative designs or sculptural forms in slate, stone or wood, including fireplace surrounds, sundials, dedication plaques, interpretation panels, architectural restoration carvings, bird baths, plaques for public buildings and churches, corbels, dice, gargoyles, mantle pieces, draining boards, statues, benches, and anything else you can think of!
