There are memorials in local churchyards dating from the 1860's with G.H. Linnell carved on the back, these give voice to our longevity. Our Masonry workshops have always been situated here at 40 Castlegate throughout this time period.   Though the ownership has changed the concept of employing only time served masons to produce a top quality products, indicate old fashioned values with modern machinery.
We have seen many changes in the last 20 years, mainly through the influence of the new materials coming from locations all over the world.


The traditional skills of hand-lettering and raised lead work are still necessary to satisfy the steady input of additional and restoration work to existing Memorials, whilst the modern methods of sandblasting and airline tools increase the range of work we can undertake. We have always undertaken architectural masonry, including stone windows, mullions and fire surrounds. 

We are members of the National Association of Memorial Masons and in accordance with their regulations hold accredited certification for fixing and erecting memorials.
