Dorset Stone Memorials

About Us

Company History

Richard GrassbyDorset Stone Memorials was originally established in 1991 by fifth generation stonemason Richard Grassby and his wife, Rosalyn, with the sole intention of supplying locally quarried natural stone memorials to the monumental trade. 

Over the years the business has developed to include a wider range of materials incorporating European as well as British limestones, sandstone slate, Italian Marble and a small selection of granites.

From our workshops at Farrington, our aim has always been to provide a bespoke service to our clients with high regard to design, material selection, and attention to detail. We also offer a first class state of the art lettering service that compliments our hand-carved craftsmanship.

We have two brochures available that showcase examples of our work, and provide a clear insight to what can be achieved using natural stone.  These are available to download from this website along with a new section showing carved Marble designs.

As mentioned before we are pleased to provide quotations for any design presented to us and are always able to help with any stone-related enquiries such as fireplaces, house-names, pet stones and commemorative plaques.

As a small family business we aim to offer a friendly professional service where every customer is of equal value and importance.  Our long-standing customer base reflects this ethos.

We hope you find our wesbite helpful and we will aim to keep it updated at regular intervals.
