After many years of neglect i am extremley delighted with the result Andy has achieved on this very old stone erected in the 1920’s. The stone had been neglected for well over 40 years. The Stone was almost black and the sides completely buried in years worth of impacted grass.Now it looks like new. My 97 year old mum, whose parents and little baby brother are buried there, was moved to tears when she saw it! Andy did the work on the the day we arranged and his prices are very reasonable. I would have no hesitation in recommending him if you are thinking about having your loved ones memorial restored.

Andy worked tirelessly all day to transform my father’s and grandmother’s plots, both of which were hugely overgrown. He revealed two beautiful surrounds, to my utmost surprise- one granite and one marble, which gleamed after he had cleaned and polished them.I would not hesitate to recommend Andy, both for his professional knowledge ,and his very pleasant character.

I cannot recommend Andy enough. Such a nice man. He has doen an absolutely amazing job cleaning my mum and dads grave, and it looks brand new. If they were here i’m sure they would be over the moon as i am. He has taken the time not to just clean the stone but to clean the vase and clean away leaves and debris from the gravel, and made it look amazing. I can’t thank him enough for his fabulous work he has done to make it look like new. Anyone looking to have the same donw, you will get no better person than Andy. Thank you so very much Andy,  you’ve made my day and a lovely Christmas present for my parents.
