Lettering and Inscriptions

Lettering can be used to greatly enhance a memorial design. All lettering was originally created by hand cutting the letter.

The choice of typeface is almost as important as the epitaph itself. It depicts a style, whether it is classic, traditional, old-style contemporary. We can offer the choice of fonts shown on this page. Most of our lettering is sandblasted and is available in various colours:

Gold / Silver / Grey / White / Black / Natural (Stone Itself)

We can however, offer hand cut and lead lettering. Please ask for details.

Available Font with Derbyshire Memorials
