Client Testimonials

What distinguishes Fergus from other masons is his empathetic and intuitive nature. My husband was an exceptional person, so it was going to have to be an exceptional headstone.

As a parent, having the sense that a headstone has been created especially and totally for the child that you've lost, meant such a lot to us.

As soon as I met Fergus I relaxed, a quiet gentle young man, and as we talked, his passion and dedication for his stone carving became evident. I was never under any pressure, advice came gently.

Thank you so much for creating such beautiful memorials for members of my family. From discussing initial ideas to delivery of the completed headstones I will be forever grateful for your sympathetic approach and superb craftsmanship.

I know of no building from the prestigious Oxford College to the modest cottage that could not be improved by the addition of Fergus Wessel’s skill, attention and sensibility. He is in the great tradition of English stone cutters, stretching back to Eric Gill. As an architect, I have been privileged to have his contribution to a number of my buildings, and I regard him as one of the finest stone cutters in the country.

John Melvin, Architect and Town Planner

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

Loyd Grossman, OBE, FSA

Stoneletters provides a highly professional and personal service at what is a very sensitive and traumatic time. Designing your young son’s headstone is something we never imagined we’d have to go through. Fergus and his team produced a piece of art that authentically represented our son’s personality and light. We went on to use Stoneletters for my Mother’s headstone and again using the finest materials available and highly skilled topographers the end result is utterly beautiful. Two handsome monuments to two very loved souls who will be forever remembered long after we are gone. Thank you Fergus and Hannah

Stoneletters in May 2015 completed a large headstone for Guy & Lettie Benson in Stanway Churchyard, with Cumberland slate inset into Cotswold (Guiting) Stone, beautiful lettering and a carved scallop. The work was very well done.

Fergus Wessel has a very professional approach to his work. The planning and research is well considered, his work is carefully set out on site to allow for minor alterations and approval prior to cutting the stone. The stone cutting is done with style to leave an image which will last for centuries.

Roger Quarmby, Arthington Park

Fergus Wessel is a master of his craft. His consultation with us was sensitive and kind. We worked on the look, the lettering and the wording together. This was a difficult time for us and he was kind and thoughtful at each stage. And the end result is quite beautiful.
