Founded in 1836, James Beresford & Sons is proud to continue its tradition of providing excellent customer service and bespoke memorials – at affordable prices.

A memorial is a lasting tribute that acknowledges the life of your loved one. Let us help you design a memorial that is every bit as special as that person.

We offer a hand-crafted, bespoke range of memorials and headstones (including Islamic kerb memorials, Jewish headstones, Ukrainian memorials – and even pet memorials), in our Derbyshire workshop at competitive prices and a service that’s second to none.

We have a highly skilled team of Monumental Masons and Sculptors who offer a comprehensive selection of Lawn Memorials and Memorials, Cremation stones/Tablets, Kerb Sets, Children’s and Baby Memorials and Memorial Vases . All Memorials can be tailored to individual requirements, design, size, material, finish and flower facilities.

All work is carried out by Barrie Price, Joint Proprietor of James Beresford & Sons, and his team of fellow craftsmen. This includes the design, creation and fixing of your loved one’s memorial.

In addition to Memorials, we offer a full range of house signs and pet headstones / memorials using Welsh slate, Hopton Wood Limestone, Derbyshire Grit Stone and other natural durable materials.

What really sets us apart from our competitors is our ability to create a design at very little extra cost.

We have a special computer program which can space your inscription layout, to scale, whilst you wait. We are also happy to provide you with complimentary printouts of the draft layout on your first visit.

Your letters can be hand cut if preferred. Alternatively, we can use the more modern sandblasted method. All gilding is carried out by hand using 23.5 carat gold leaf to ensure the brightest of finishes. Our silver enameled letters look equally stunning and receive three coasts of enamel over three days to ensure a shiny, robust finish which will last as long as the gold.
