Fixing a Memorial with gantry

Grandfather of Parkin and Jackson's previous owner

"We never thought the headstone we had in mind was possible but Parkin & Jackson helped us to find exactly what we wanted. The service we received was outstanding, nothing was too much trouble."

With over 150 years of experience Parkin and Jackson ensures a professional service every time.

We provide a complete service helping you to choose the right memorial and inscription for your loved one. 


From our workshop in Kendal, Cumbria, we supply new memorials in Granite, Limestone, Sandstone and Lakeland Slate, we can add second inscriptions on existing memorials, along with cleaning, repainting and gilding, also repairing and reinstating unstable memorials.

We specialise in traditional hand carved letters and designs but also use modern techniques to produce Memorials, House Names and Numbers, Commemorative Plaques and Business signs.
