Memorials

Our sister company, Clover Leaf Signs and Memorials, specialise in traditional headstones, mainly in Welsh slate. However, we do other materials such as granite, limestone and sandstone which are suited to both modern and more traditional churchyard settings.

They have extensive expertise in Welsh slate. Welsh slate is one of the best materials for a headstone – the dense, smooth finish of slate together with its negligible porosity ensures that the surface is almost totally resistant to natural growths of algae and moss which take over other headstones. Welsh slate is also exceptionally durable and a 200-year-old headstone is as easy to read now as the day it was carved.  All their headstones and memorials, including granite, are V- carved using state of the art machinery, ensuring deep, easy to read letters which will last many lifetimes.

Choosing and deciding upon a memorial for a loved one can be an extremely hard and emotional experience. When working with Clover Leaf, you can feel  rest assured that their team we will be with you every step of the way to guide and support you through the process. After contacting them, they will work with you to discuss your individual requirements and establish the regulations in relation to the memorial site. They will provide you with detailed proofs and only once you are happy with the design and specification does manufacturing begin. Upon completion of this, they then work with you to arrange installation.

Clover Leaf work mainly in the Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire areas but when requested, can also travel further afield.

They also offer a headstone cleaning service. Many headstones are made from porous materials including limestone and marble. Over time, lichen begins to grow and the engraving becomes harder and harder to read. Whilst cleaning will never completely restore the headstone to its original appearance, it can be vastly improved. Prices start from as little as £100.
