A leaded inscription is a traditional way of creating long lasting inscriptions on headstones - particularly on white or light coloured stone. It not only helps the lettering stand out but also helps with overall weathering.
Our stonemasons will firstly drill out the lettering into the stone and then hammer in the lead.
Below is a great photo we took of one of our stonemasons creating leaded inscriptions on a memorial.
Our monumental masons use lead inscriptions on new memorials, when adding lettering to existing memorials, as well many headstone and memorial restorations.
