Headstones and memorials

Bespoke approach

Alex Black Funeral Care in Glasgow can create a perfect memorial for your loved one.




A unique life needs a unique memorial

Finding a headstone or memorial that truly represents your loved one, that conveys their significance to you and that symbolises the respect you have for them is always a difficult decision. It’s why we make sure to offer a number of options so you can choose the one that’s right for both your loved one and your family.

What we provide

One of our craftsmen will carve the headstone so that it meets your specific requirements. The size and shape of the headstone can be tailored as needed. And there are existing designs and styles to choose from as well. But if you’d prefer to have something entirely bespoke, our artisans can create it for you.

We know the choice of headstone and the placement of it is only part of the process. You want it to be an everlasting memorial that does not require consistent maintenance. With an existing memorial, restoration of certain elements may be required, like the re-carving of inscriptions and motifs or the fixing of loose kerbs and lead letters. Our skilled restorers can take care of that for you too.

A large part of honouring your loved one – in such a way that has meaning for both you and your family – is in choosing the right headstone. You can rely on us to help you with the planning, design, wording and permit applications for your chosen headstone or memorial. If you have any specific requirements, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
