Gravestones, Unique Headstones, Opening Plaques and Heraldry, by Memorial Artist Fergus Wessel

Creating unique headstones, gravestones, commemorative plaques, opening plaques and heraldry in stone, Fergus Wessel is one of the UK’s leading memorial artists. His unique headstones and gravestones can be found in churchyards all over Great Britain, from Highgate Cemetery in London, to Scotland. His opening plaques can be found in St Paul’s Cathedral, the Royal Albert Hall, and several Oxford Colleges.

Previous clients include Alan Titchmarsh, Brasenose College, Cornbury Park, Charterhouse School and Lord Faringdon of Buscot Park. Fergus’s hand carved memorials are all individually commissioned and his approach is very personal; many of his clients find him by word of mouth. Awards include an Oxford Preservation Trust award for work on the Holywell Music Room and a Small Business Award from Dragon’s Den Theo Paphitis.


Each gravestone is entirely handcarved; the same amount of meticulous care and attention to detail is given to all unique headstones and gravestones. Based in Oxfordshire only one and a half hours from London, I am easy to reach, although I have clients from all over the UK; most visit in person, but when this is not possible, we can work using email or post. This is our chance to get it right.”
