Unique, hand-carved Gravestones, Headstones, Memorials, Opening Plaques and Heraldry

Our work


Based in Oxfordshire, just over an hour from London, our memorials, gravestones and plaques can be found all over the country. Established by Fergus Wessel over 15 years ago, clients include The Royal Albert Hall, Oxford University and Alan Titchmarsh. 


Fergus carves with power and elegance. His work is forward looking but firmly rooted in traditional practice.
