Welcome to Auckland Memorials, the home of beautiful letter carving and noble memorial stones in the North East carved by a genuine time served craftsman.  

Auckland Memorials was founded by master mason Adrian Hopper who, as well as having a lifelong passion for the art of the carved letter, is a past mason to Durham Cathedral as well as a college and university graduate. Now with experience spanning three decades some of the most beautiful memorials in Northern England are produced here.

The art of stonework runs in my family and I  worked on the restoration of the east end of Durham Cathedral from 1993 to 1996.

I pride myself on delivering a lasting monument to honour your loved ones and provide a bespoke, quality service whilst keeping the cost as affordable as possible.


Find me here...for free, personal advice please phone me on 01388 662368 or email adrianhopper@yahoo.com 

All consultations are entirely without obligation.

I have many years experience and am happy to discuss your requirements.

Please make an appointment before visiting as I often work on sites across the north of England. 

Quality takes time, care and attention. The machine cannot replicate the touch of the human hand and the most ancient of skills still lives on.
