Replacing or Repairing Traditional Ceramic Photographs

It is normal for headstone designs and headstone wording to become damaged or to degrade over time. It can be hard to see the monument left to memorialise a loved one decay like this. That’s why Sanctuary Memorials offers professional refurbishing services to get such headstones looking dignified again.

Our skilled team has years of experience and will repair both artwork and headstone wording with great care. We offer a range of affordable rates for refurbishment services, and will assess the gravesite carefully to establish an accurate quote for you.

If desired, we can also add new inscriptions or change headstone wording, providing that permission is obtained from all concerned.

Many older memorial tombstones feature traditional ceramic photographs. This is a way to preserve the image of the deceased on their headstone that is designed to last. These photographs are made by reproducing a photograph on fine porcelain which is then attached to the monument.

While our modern ceramic photographs are specially produced to last a very long time without fading, older ceramic images fade more easily and can become chipped, cracked, or damaged in other ways. At Sanctuary Memorials we can assess your ceramic photograph and repair it if possible. If not, we can create a replacement using the original image or a new image provided by you.
