Welcome to Auckland Memorials, the home of the most beautiful memorials carved in stone by a genuine master craftsman with a sincere passion for letter carving and artwork in stone.  At Auckland Memorials I work the stone in the traditional way still using ancient methods and skills along with modern techniques.

I offer a fully bespoke service, working with you and your family to create a lasting monument to your loved ones.

I provide a headstone cleaning and restoration service.  No job is too big or too small.  I provide free consultations, without obligation and am happy to visit you in your home.  The service I provide is discrete and personal.  

Let me turn your vision into a lasting memorial to your loved one.
