  • Gravestones Edinburgh

    Walking through The Dean Cemetery near The Modern Art and Dean Galleries in Edinburgh, you will find a wide range of different gravestones, headstones and memorials. Some are very old and can hardly be read due to the weather which has wiped the lettering away from the stone. There are range of designs which are made from a variety of stones. I have always had an interest in gravestones and cemetries because of their history but I am also a Sculptor and Letter Carver.  I make handcarved bespoke gravestones, headstones and memorials in stone and marble and I am based at The Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop in Edinburgh, Scotland. I work throughout the UK and overseas and my work can be viewed at my website at http://simonburnscox.co.uk/ and can be contacted at info@simonburnscox.co.uk.
