Memorial inscriptions

Memorial inscription specialists in Lancaster

Kenneth A Fraser Ltd uses both traditional and modern methods of cutting letters into memorial stones. We cover Lancaster, Cheshire, Manchester, Lancashire and North Yorkshire.

Hand-carved memorial stones

Lettering on granite memorials are finished with gold leaf but can also be painted, usually white or silver on dark granite and black on lighter granite. Lettering on marble memorials are normally finished in black enamel or flush lead. York stone and limestone letters are usually finished in black enamel. Inscriptions on slate can be gilded, painted black or white. All inscriptions can simply be carved into the stone without finishing in a contrasting colour, in these circumstances, the lettering is carved deeper than normal, thus ensuring the inscription is clearly legible.
