Headstones & Memorials

    Choosing an appropriate tribute or memorial is one of the most important ways in which we remember loved ones who have passed away. Dublin Cemeteries Trust has been designing and creating headstones, monuments and a variety of memorials since 1974. With almost 50 years experience in this specialised craft, we can work with you to consider various options and create a tailored piece which meets your requirements.

    All of our pieces are created in our Glasnevin Workshop by a skilled team of stone cutters led by Robbie McGowan. Choose from more than 100 popular designs in a range of materials, or talk to our craftspeople about designing a bespoke monument or tribute. Each of our cemeteries (except Goldenbridge) has a Sales Office, and our team there will take you through the specific regulations of each site which protect the unique character and ambience of each particular setting.

    You can also be assured that, as part of Dublin Cemeteries Trust, we will guide you with professionalism and compassion, honouring both the wishes of the deceased and the sensitivities involved at what is a difficult time for loved ones.

    Headstones & Inscriptions

    We supply a broad and varied range of headstones, in many different sizes and designs. Most headstones are in granite, although we also work with other types of stone. We also add new inscriptions to existing headstones or refresh fading inscriptions as required.

    Headstone Kerbing & Slabs

    Borders surround the perimeter of a grave and give a strong sense of definition and significance to the resting place of a loved one. Slabs are an ornate piece of vertical concrete often placed on an older grave where there will be no further burials. We offer a number of styles and sizes in this area.

    Grave Accessories

    Angels, plaques and hearts are a popular choice of memorial to accompany an existing headstone or to add something new to a grave.

    Additional Services


    If you would like to have an existing headstone or memorial cleaned, our team will take care of this for you. We use a specialist, environmentally-friendly technique which eliminates dirt and material from the monument without causing any damage or disfiguration.


    We can restore older headstones and memorials which have fallen into disrepair. This service is popular with people who have located ancestors in the older parts of our cemeteries.
