the memorial specialists

All our memorials and headstones by Haven Memorials are available in a choice of quality materials, colours and finishes. We can create headstones, kerb sets and cremation tablets from a wide range of granite, sandstone, marble and limestone, to create an elegant and personalised memorial for your loved one.

 

Please note: the natural materials used in the production of memorials have variations within the original quarried slab. The colour names can be misleading and are only given as a general guide.

Choice of elegant materials and finishes

Granite

Granite headstones are popular for their choice of colours and the pearl effect which can be achieved when the stone is polished to show the mica within the rock.  These are the hardest materials and cover all igneous stones. Colours range from black to light grey, pink to red, blue and green.

A CHOICE OF

QUALITY MATERIALS, COLOURS & FINISHES

Carrara is the usual marble used for memorials. Marble is generally white and hasa blue grey vein. As it weathers it turns grey and becomes sugary, due to surface erosion.

Finishes: All types except polishing.

Marble

Limestone

Nabresina

Sandstone

Slate

The material is formed under water and contains shells, as in Portland stone. The colour ranges from cream to beige.

It is more dense and finer grained than many British stones. It is cream in colour with a small brown fleck.

Finishes: All types except polishing.

Silica stones, such as York, can be harder and more durable than limestone. The colours vary from sandy to grey.

Finishes: Fine rubbed, tooled or pitched.

Chemically similar to clay, this material is compressed into laminated form and is very strong. It can be split or sawn into thin slabs. It is usually blue/black or green.

Finishes: Fine honed or Riven - split through the lamination or machine cut.
