Slate Memorials, Timeless Elegance….

Here at Clover Leaf Signs & Memorials we craft beautiful, timeless Welsh and Cumbrian memorials using the finest slate, quarried in both the mountains of North Wales and the Lake District. Slate provides a traditional alternative to the granite memorials that are now widely used in churchyards and cemeteries today.

These are imported from places such as India and China and arrive cut, finished and ready for a memorial mason to simply inscribe.  In contrast to this, we offer a full bespoke service where, after arriving with us from the Welsh quarry, the slate is cut to size, shaped, honed and inscribed in our workshop to your exacting requirements.

Slate as a memorial material

The dense, smooth finish of slate together with its negligible porosity ensures that the surface is almost totally resistant to natural growths of algae and moss which can take over other headstones.  Welsh slate is also exceptionally durable and a 200-year-old memorial is as easy to read now as the day it was erected.

All our memorials can be supplied simply engraved or fully installed based on your individual requirements.  They are deeply v-carved using our state-of-the-art machinery and will last many lifetimes.

Choosing Clover Leaf

Choosing and deciding upon a memorial for a loved one can be an extremely hard and emotional experience. When working with Clover Leaf, you can feel  rest assured that our team we will be with you every step of the way to guide and support you through the process.

After contacting us, we will work with you to discuss your individual requirements and establish the regulations in relation to the memorial site. We will provide you with detailed proofs and only once you are happy with the design and specification does manufacturing begin. Upon completion of this, we then work with you to arrange installation.

Where we work

We work mainly in the Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire areas but when requested, can also travel further afield.

Memorial cleaning service

We also offer a headstone cleaning service. Many headstones are made from porous materials including limestone and marble. Over time, lichen begins to grow and the engraving becomes harder and harder to read. Whilst cleaning will never completely restore the headstone to its original appearance, it can be vastly improved. Prices start from as little as £100.

For further information or to discuss your requirements in person, please contact us at Clover Leaf Signs & Memorials.
