Organising a headstone or memorial plaque for a loved one can be an emotional process.  Batstones Memorials can comfort and guide you and your family through this time and are proud of our experience helping families commemorate a loved one's life.  A memorial can say a person was a part of human history, that they lived in a time and place, that their life was one like no other, that their memory will be cherished forever.  A cemetery is a place of rest and a place to reflect on special moments with loved ones, it also is validation of a society.  Batstones Memorials takes pride in putting all these words of value into stone headstones and plaques to honour a loved one's life.

One of Brisbane's oldest memorial stands in Mowbray Park Brisbane and was built by William Alfred Batstone.  Time-honoured values combined with quality stonemasonry resonate with our history to make memorials that endure.  Our family have been making monuments in Queensland since 1885 when William Batstone opened his stonemasonry workshop in Woolloongabba, Brisbane.  From this humble workshop he was commissioned to carve statues for Queensland State Monuments and memorials that are still visited and admired today.  Currently in our fifth generation the Batstone family continue to create headstones and plaques that are a place of remembrance and come with many interesting stories.  



Batstone Memorials are experienced in adding inscriptions to existing headstones and plaques.  Our stonemasons are craftsmen in stone lettering and stone engraving ensuring lettering fonts and styles can be matched to original headstone and plaque inscription.
