Additional inscriptions can be added to existing headstones. This is done on-site. I have the knowledge and skill to match any font currently on the headstone. This service within 100 km of my workshop costs €160 per inscription. The lettering will be coloured to match the original lettering on the headstone. Please contact me for a quote if the distance is further. I offer this service nationwide with headstone inscriptions in Galway City costing €200.

When you are having an additional inscription added to a headstone this is a good time to repaint or re-gold leaf the original lettering. This ensures it all looks the same and matches. This service is available at €60 when purchasing an additional headstone inscription within 100km of my workshop.

The restoration of existing lettering when the inscription is no longer legible is done using special enamel paint or gold leaf, leaving it looking like new.

LIMESTONE & MARBLE. Over a long period of time headstone inscriptions can erode completely or become non-legible through over-cleaning.  When it is no longer possible to restore the existing lettering the headstone has to be refaced. This is done by polishing out all existing inscriptions and re-engraving inscriptions back onto the original stone, this is a costly process but will last for many more years. The cost of refacing a headstone is €300 and an additional €160 per name to be re-engraved. Inscriptions can be purchased online or by contacting me.
