Over time, weather conditions can have an adverse effect on the condition of granite and marble headstones. Natural stones, especially those that are more porous, can become marked, weathered and dirty. Inscriptions can also fade and will require re- gilding, repainting or re-cutting.

At Instone Memorials in Stevenage, we offer a full renovation service throughout the Hertfordshire area that includes repair work, re-levelling, cleaning, resurfacing, re-gilding and the repainting of inscriptions. We are delighted to offer an obligation-free inspection and written quotation on request.

Maintenance and Grave Tending

Instone Memorials offer a full maintenance and grave tending service alongside expert advice on stone care to help reduce the effects of wear and adverse weather conditions. Our friendly experts offer maintenance services on new and existing memorials using carefully selected materials that reduce the risk of weathering and staining.

Grave Maintenance

Instone Memorials attend to all aspects of grave maintenance and can provide a written quote and inspection on request. Our maintenance services are highly flexible but will usually include twice-yearly washing and cleaning, levelling work and the laying of floral tributes on special anniversaries.

Removal of Memorial to Allow Further Burial

We can undertake memorial removals throughout Hertfordshire and safely store them over the allotted time period required for natural subsidence.

Additional Inscriptions

Our experienced stonemasons have the ability to add perfectly matching letters to any existing inscriptions on your memorial. In most instances, we will carefully remove the memorial from site to allow the work to be carried out at our workshops. In circumstances where removal isn’t possible, our stonemasons can add new inscriptions on-site.

Memorial Insurance

We understand that your memorial will play an important part in evoking fond memories of loved ones. For your complete peace of mind, Instone Memorials offer affordable memorial insurance to cover the risk of accidental damage, malicious damage and vandalism. Our affordable insurance, usually taken out over a five-year term, can be obtained at the time of a memorial purchase or at any time in the future.
