We keep Westmill intentionally as a natural landscape of wild beauty and for this reason we do not allow memorials to be placed on individual plots. We do however offer our families the opportunity to purchase a memorial tablet to be laid in a central spiral around our large sarsen stone. This stone acts as a focal point for many of our gatherings but it has also become an important place for family and friends to gather when they visit.
All of the tablets are a standard size made from a green grey Cumbrian slate. We use this rather than local stone because it is the most suitable for carving and weathering horizontally. Hand or machine cut lettering is available and we help you to liaise directly with the stone cutters to get something very beautiful and unique.
We try to ensure that each tablet is as affordable as possible. There is an initial amount payable to Westmill with your order which is currently £125 and which covers the cost of the blank tablet and all admin and laying costs. There will then be an additional charge direct to the mason or stone cutter to cover the cost of the inscription. These charges can vary but are usually per letter and range from about £2 for machine cut to £9.50 for hand carved.
