Slate has been for hundreds of years, a widely used natural medium for memorial purposes. Slate is an excellent medium for either machine cut or hand cut lettering.
In more recent times, slate has been frequently used for commemorative plaques in gardens of remembrance that are found in crematoriums and these are further examples of how the material may be brought to use.
Wincilate slate is normally supplied to a maximum thickness of 75mm. Thinner sections are available if required. Most commonly used headstone sizes can be produced without difficulty and all basic work, including the provision of a hole in the base to accept a standard flower container. All exposed surfaces are finely rubbed upon completion.
Wincilate will be pleased to advise and assist in any aspect of your requirement.
