When only traditional memorials in Kirkby Lonsdale will do for your loved one, Kenneth A. Fraser Ltd is the stonemason for you. Our company dates back to 1929 and our work is exclusive to memorials. We are still family operated using traditional skills yet forward thinking, making good use of the modern technology. Most cemeteries have guidelines regarding size of memorials and we must adhere to them. Unfortunately, some cemeteries do not allow raised memorials at all anymore because maintenance workers charge more for their services if raised memorials are allowed. We will know what the rules are of every cemetery in the area so we can advise you and help you select a monument accordingly.
Kenneth A. Fraser Ltd is a proud member of the National Association of Memorial Masons (NAMM). This is a professional organisation which holds masons of, in Kirkby Lonsdale, traditional memorials to a high standard. Our work comprises new memorials, repair and refurbishment of older memorials. You might notice old memorial stones in a cemetery with fading inscriptions or discoloured stone. We can make them look new again for the benefit of future generations. Setting your chosen memorial stone is part of our service and we do it with care so stability is not an issue.
Traditional memorials in Kirkby Lonsdale of slate, marble, limestone, granite or York Stone survive the years of exposure to the elements because they are a natural element. Contact us to find out more about the fifty headstones we have on display to help you choose the right stone, right size, and best inscription and style pleasing to you. We even have beautiful combinations of stones in one memorial. The stones we use for memorials can be finished to suit. Some can be polished, rubbed or left rustic. Granite is the most popular for durability and colour selection but each kind of stone has its own beauty. You will see the various scripts from which you may choose and many medallions designating military, religious, or club affiliations. We will help you design a unique memorial to honour your loved one.
