Gravestones, Memorials, Commemorative Plaques, Opening Plaques and Heraldry hand carved in stone
Combining local materials with the finest craftsmanship and an enthusiasm for the preservation of British churchyards, Fergus Wessel’s Oxfordshire workshop embraces the creation of hand carved gravestones, cremation memorials, commemorative plaques, opening plaques and heraldry in stone.
“Each memorial is entirely handmade. The same amount of meticulous care and attention to detail is given to all headstones, cremation stones and all other contemporary and traditional memorials. I have clients from all over the UK, from London to Scotland; most visit in person, but when this is not possible, we can work using email or post. This is our chance to get it right.”

Clients often request for a gold sunken disc at the top of a headstone. This motif is timeless and has serenity. It means different things to different people, but it may represent unity, the cycle of life, perfection, stillness, and eternity. I like the way the disc reflects light on a sunny afternoon, and is also smooth to the touch.
