This book shaped wooden memorial marker is on another level. A beautiful green burial marker made to perfection right here in our Surrey Hills workshop with considerable care and attention to detail. We use this expression a lot when it comes to making high quality personalised wooden memorial plaques on a post, there is very little else to describe the lengths we go to make these grave markers special. If you are after something more interesting to a regular square edge flat personalised oak plaque – this really is something else!

This plaques, carved into the shape of an open book is ideal for a joint burial plot or ashes. Alternatively, the two separate sections can be layout with sentimental wording. Name and dates on one side and a special message on the other. Or perhaps as a double burial plot memorial marker. Each side of the book is engraved for each.

Our eco friendly engraved solid oak grave markers feature a solid oak plaque set at 45 degrees, mounted on a 3-inch square solid oak post. The post comes 60cm long, giving you at least 30cm to be secured into the ground. The plaque itself is made from a single solid piece of superior grade English Oak, fitting to a substantial solid oak post at 45 degrees.


Our beautiful oak grave markers come well sealed with water-resistant, Liberon Superior Danish Oil as standard, however, we also offer our Diamond-Coating finish as an optional extra if you want to something very low maintenance.


Our beautiful wooden grave markers come with a personalised engraving of your choice up to 100 characters included, however, if this is not enough, you have the option to make this up to 200 characters if more inscription is needed. You have complete control on how you want the layout to be and we can provide a preview once you have placed your order for you to approve before we begin carving. We also make bespoke grave markers, if you would like to discuss having a grave maker made please do not hesitate to contact us – we will be happy to assist you.

You can also add carved symbols like hearts, stars and other engraved motifs like zodiac signs to your grave marker plaque. Take a look at the options available to you – Engraving options.

Here at our Surrey Hills workshop we have over 3000 carvings on file, so when it comes to a carved motif to go alongside your engraved lettering on your memorial plaque, we pretty much have everything you could think of.

Bespoke Sizes: 

When it comes to ordering your engraved wooden burial marker it is always a good idea to check with the burial site first. In our experience most of the sites we supply have strict guidelines when it comes to plaque sizes. If you require a bespoke size plaque, this is not a problem for us to make for you. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Estimated Delivery Time:

7 – 10 working days. Please be aware this can change daily. If you require an item to be made by a specific date please contact us.

Please Note:

All engravings are in capitals. For lower case lettering, this can be requested at the time of order. Please add this to the note section at checkout or you can contact us via email or phone. All sizes are approximate.

All our engraved oak memorial book markers are made to order. All of our green burial memorial markers come fully assembled ready for placing. Always worth checking with your chosen burial plot regulations as most have specified sizes. All wooden house sign engravings are in capitals unless otherwise stated. If you choose Superior Danish oil, this finish is matt and requires regular upkeep – 4-6 times a year to keep it looking its best. If you choose our Diamond Coating finish, this finish is more glossy and only requires topping up once to twice a year at the most to keep it weather resistant. Top up kits can be ordered over the phone or on our website – see here.
