Samuel Jacob Memorials is a respected producer of bespoke headstones and memorials in North Lincolnshire.
We work hard to provide a lasting tribute and fitting memorial for your dearly departed.
All types of designs, lettering, materials and motifs are available and we are more than happy to talk through all your options. Please feel free to get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Memorial engraved stones are available on slate, granite slabs, black granite tiles, rough split field stones, natural boulders and traditional stones.
Picking a shape is a great way to start. Headstones come in many shapes and can be scaled to any suitable size.
Displayed opposite are some examples of popular shapes, tops and sides and how they can be combined.
For example, you may choose an Ogee top with Scotia corners and tapering sides. We also create completely unique designs.
Typically they are made from granite, marble, sandstone or limestone and fixed in situ via industry-approved foundations, fixings and ground anchors.
Kerbed headstones mark the edges of the grave and are usually made from the same materials to match the headstone.
The most traditional shapes are often available and completed within 12 weeks (subject to the relevant approvals by the authorities). Custom shapes may take up to 20 weeks.
We provide bespoke services for headstones, markers, memorials and restorations. The headstone will be personalized to your exact specifications – you will receive a proof showing the design, lettering & dates – we won’t proceed until you approve it.
We work closely with funeral directors across the region, as well as local authorities on the care and maintenance of war memorials and other precious landmarks.
Finding the right words can be the most difficult part of choosing a memorial, and inspiration can come from all quarters.
Although it is helpful to have a good initial idea of the wording you would like, we will invite you to check the inscription laid out on the stone before cutting, so you can change your mind about the wording or the layout if you wish.
There may be regulations covering the type of wording allowed on your memorial. We advise you to consider an inscription which says something about your loved one – their work, their interests, their place in the community and their personality.
