Unique, hand-carved Gravestones, Headstones, Memorials, Opening Plaques and Heraldry

Our work


Based in Oxfordshire, just over an hour from London, our memorials, gravestones and plaques can be found all over the country. Established by Fergus Wessel over 15 years ago, clients include The Royal Albert Hall, Oxford University and Alan Titchmarsh. 


Stoneletters in May 2015 completed a large headstone for Guy & Lettie Benson in Stanway Churchyard, with Cumberland slate inset into Cotswold (Guiting) Stone, beautiful lettering and a carved scallop. The work was very well done.

Having visited several monumental masons, I was so relieved to find Stoneletters. Fergus’s unique and unhurried approach to making a gravestone resulted not only in the most beautiful, hand crafted memorial, but also provided great comfort during a very stressful time. Thank you.
