Simon Langsdale Letter Carver
Hand Carved Headstones
The Forge Hertford Rd, Welwyn, AL6 0BU Directionshttps://www.yell.com/biz/simon-langsdale-letter-carver-welwyn-8275472/#view=map
Hand carved memorials, benches, bird baths, stones for gardens, house signs etc.
I believe that memorials should reflect the character and personality of the people they are commemorating. I carefully consult with my clients and create designs that make a fitting commemoration to their loved ones.
I draw my letters, based on my training as a calligrapher and by years of looking at and studying hand made lettering. My lettering is cut by hand using the traditional tools of the craft, the letter carvers' dummy and chisel.
My clients are always welcome to visit my workshop to discuss requirements or see work in progress and I can visit clients at home.
Once I have received a commission I make a design which can be amended as necessary until the completed design is arrived at. I then submit the design to the relevant authority for approval. The stone is then ordered and once it has been carved I also arrange for the memorial to be fixed in place.
I also make benches, bird baths, standing stones, house signs and house numbers.

Personal & Professional Service5
Buying a head stone is a sad time so getting that personal touch is very important in making the whole process as hassle free as possible. Simon deals with the authorities so you don’t have to do anything. He even arranged a mutual time for the fitting of the stone so I could be there when it was installed.
I went to Simon not really knowing what I wanted – he guided me with kindness and compassion. He helped me choose the type of stone, the words and even came up with a suggestion of an engraved anchor as my Dad was a naval man.
He then made a design on paper before I committing to any costs.
Simon hand craves everything and the quality of his work is outstanding.
My Dad’s stone was so personal to my Dad and the best stone in the graveyard.
If you use Simon to hand engrave your headstone you will not be disappointed – he is professional but at the same time never forgets to give that personal touch.
