"Peter Hayman is a fully qualified Banker mason having served his apprenticeship at the Stone Firms Ltd Portland, and achieved the highest
stone masonry qualifications obtainable, he was also awarded the City and Guilds first prize advanced craft medal for the year 1975, and has
been working
in stone ever since, expressing his skills and expertise in the supply of a variety of stone carving works including such things as hand
cut lettering, individual memorials headstones gravestones and stone carving commissions etc"
 

“I know a little bit about stone and I know they have excellent stonemasons in China, so the fact Peter was out there made me very interested,” said Colin.
“He was one of only two people able and prepared to meet the detailed specification I had put together for the work". 

"When I met Peter, his experience with Portland Stone made it clear he was the right person."
“He did an excellent job, met all the requirements and his work was excellent. Everyone in the village was delighted.
"Peter was sensitive to the nature of the work involved and kept to his agreed schedule. It was a pleasure working with him.”

Work on the memorial was completed in time for the village to hold its Remembrance Day services.

       
Although based in Taunton Somerset I am a proud Portlander at heart, being born and brought up on the Island,
Portland is a place where the quarrying and the working of stone has been a part of life for generations.

                  memorial mason
                        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
                from traditional banker masonry to carving and letter cutting all under the supervision and guidance of skilled masons.
 
 Being 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.
