Beautiful memorial

At our saddest of times we found Adrian a stonemason who took time to listen and get to know our family. Because of this the memorial he made is absolutely perfect, beautiful stone, carefully and lovingly carved , it is stunning. Nothing was too much trouble for Adrian, he was happy to adapt and discuss ideas and his years of experience meant we could trust his judgment. Our beautiful sto...ne has helped bring peace.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart

The difficult process of choosing a headstone and designing the script for my husband memorial was made so much easier with the help and
guidance of Adrian.

Adrian managed capture the very essence of my husbands character and who he was to us as a family within the hand carved script on the beautiful stone that I chose.

The road to the finished product was unfortunately longer than anyone anticipated with COVID, lock down and my husband been buried in the wrong grave and the last minute tweak to the design to name but a few.

My gratitude and thanks can not express how I feel about the beautiful stunning headstone that is now in its new home.

The complements from an other stonemason and visitors on the beautiful hand carved script is testament to Adrian's hard work and dedication to his craft.

We would as a family highly recommend Auckland Memorials. Adrian from the beginning was so professional and compassionate, his work is outstanding to every tiny little detail, nothing was a problem to him. If ever anyone needs a stonemason please give him a call I can promise you won’t be disappointed.

Wonderful Memorial!

When we first saw Adrian Hopper's memorials in Durham Crematorium, we knew we had to choose him for our parents' memorial stone. He worked closely with us to share our vision and to make us the most beautiful stone. Everything was perfect and we could not have imagined a better tribute. We absolutely love it and highly recommend his outstanding craftsmanship. Thank you so much, Auckland Memorials!

A good job well done

I live in the South but mums headstone in Bishop Auckland cemetery needed replacing, as it could not be read clearly. I contacted Adrian Hopper and we struck up a long term conversation and correspondence, but I have to admit it has been worth the time and effort. With covid restrictions the whole process has taken approximately 2 years and the new headstone has now been erected and we finally got to see it last month. We also met up with Adrian at his workplace in West Auckland, on our recent visit, and we are delighted with the final outcome. I found Adrian most helpful, caring and got a very personable and professional service and he came up with some interesting ideas - always helpful in sending information and telephone numbers and departments to contact. It has all been worth the effort and the level of service is second to none and I would have no problem at all in recommending him to anyone. I could not have asked for anything better and the result speaks for itself.
