"I was very pleased to have found Simon Keeley and I’m delighted with the very individual headstone that he carved for my wife’s grave.  The commissioning process worked very well – Simon following the specifications while also enhancing the original design – and the standard of execution was outstanding.  Simon is a highly skilled stone carver, with a fine balance between creativity and sensitivity to the client’s wishes, and is a pleasure to work with."

Bespoke Memorials and Headstones

Following in the footsteps of my great grandfather, I look forward to the challenge every memorial presents. Close liasons with the client are important, making sure the memorial is exactly what the client wants. The site for the memorial is usually visited with the client, the site may affect the overall design. Stone/slate and marble samples can be sent directly to the client, my preference is for stone quarried in the United Kingdom.

My orders for bespoke memorials and headstones are steadily increasing, if you would like to discuss a memorial, please email me at simonkeeley@rocketmail.com or call me on 07939 337 441.

"I cannot thank Simon enough for understanding and carrying out the work to make my late husband's headstone in exactly the way I requested, also his patience with my requests.

Simon is immensely talented and his work is second to none. The family and I are thrilled to have a small sample of his work." Mrs. Kennedy, Sunningdale
