Headstones & Memorials

    Organising a Headstone or Memorial

    Choosing an appropriate tribute or memorial is one of the most important ways in which we remember loved ones who have passed away.

    When buying a headstone or a memorial for the grave of your loved one, it can be difficult for families to know where to begin. There are many choices of headstone designs, headstone inscriptions and headstone materials from granite, stone, marble etc. We can guide you during each step of the process. 

    We have a dedicated team of specialists within Dublin Cemeteries Trust, who have been designing and creating headstones in Dublin since 1974. From your initial enquiry to completion, we can create a fitting memorial for your loved one with a timeless tribute. 

    All of our pieces are created in our Glasnevin Workshop by a skilled team of stone cutters. Our team there will take you through each cemetery's specific regulations, which protect the unique character and ambience of each particular setting so the headstone design you have selected can be put in place.

    We will guide you with professionalism and compassion, honouring the wishes of the deceased and the sensitivities involved at a difficult time for loved ones.

    Headstones & Inscriptions

    Headstone Kerbing & Slabs

    Borders surround the perimeter of a grave and give a strong sense of definition and significance to the resting place of a loved one. Slabs are an ornate piece of vertical concrete often placed on an older grave where there will be no further burials. We offer a number of styles and sizes in this area.
