On the banker during my Stone Masonry Apprenticeship at "The Stone Firms Portland"
I was fortunate in that during the early years of my apprenticeship I
had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects
traditional banker masonry to carving and letter cutting all under the
supervision and guidance of skilled masons.
a memorial mason and employed to reflect
special memories and affection by way of a memorial stone is a privilege
and responsibility that is never taken lightly. The first memorial I
ever made was for my Grandfather and done whilst I
was a young apprentice, I was not a memorial mason then, I was a
trainee banker mason and used to think making headstones would be
a morbid pastime. But being
entrusted by my own family to make a memorial for a special man,
my grandad, who I loved and
respected dearly changed my perspective completely and helped me
realize the deeper meaning and implications of a memorial and
the personal sentiment it reflects to those that we love and miss.
Memorial masons do not just make headstones, they enable
heartfelt memories and our uniqueness as individuals to be recorded forever in stone.
