Quality Grave Tending & Maintenance

By Andrew Gardner

A BIG shout out to this amazing man. Our 40 year old grave has been restored. The gold lettering was nearly unreadable. Its back to brand new now. I can’t praise his work enough. Please don’t hesitate to call him. A genuine and honest person.

Andy was great, made the whole process straight forward and professional. I am so happy with the results you could not see the writing at all on my mums grave and now it is as good as new. 5 star service, very happy customer.

Andrew has done a 1st class job of cleaning my sons headstone. 27 yrs of algae and dirt completely gone. He also expertly repainted the lettering. Looks like new all at a very reasonable cost. He is very professional, knowledgeable and has provided expert restoration of such a precious item. Can’t recommend him highly enough. 5 star service
