In terms of cost – there is no set fee for memorial masonry as the prices are based on size, materials, design and lettering – Leadbetter & Murphy are happy to discuss costs with you and confirm what is possible within your budget.
Additions/improvements to existing memorials
If required, we can add additional inscriptions on to an existing memorial, if you feel there is something extra you would like to add, or if you intended your memorial to be used for two people when you bought it – we can add the second inscription. Costs for this work are based upon the lettering type and the number of letters required.
Re-gild, re-paint, re-lead lettering
If the existing lettering on a memorial needs to be restored due to age or its position, Leadbetter & Murphy can provide this service for you.
Our experienced masonry team can re-fix memorials if they have become unstable – this can sometimes happen over time. This is done by re-fixing the memorial into the ground using an super safe, modern ground anchor system. Costs to re-fix a memorial are dependent on the size, we’ll be happy to advise the costs for this service based on your needs.
Cleaning and renovation can make a huge difference to the appearance of existing memorials and keeps them looking clean and well kept as time passes.
