Engraved Wooden Grave Marker


If you are looking for a beautiful handmade engraved wooden grave marker – then look no further.

These stunning handcrafted wooden grave markers are made to order right here in our Surrey Hills workshop with considerable care and attention to detail. If you are looking for an alternative to the common headstone, or you have gone down the green burial route, we will produce the finest English Oak burial marker for you. These quality handcrafted memorial markers are breathtaking. Completely bespoke with you choice of engraved lettering and carved motifs if required. MakeMeSomethingSpecial memorial plaques are simply stunning.

Our eco friendly engraved solid oak grave markers feature a solid oak plaque 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.

If you want a wooden burial marker that is of superior quality, with an exceptional finish, you will not be disappointed with our memorial markers. These really are the finest engraved wooden grave markers available on the market.

Beautifully finished, our grave markers come well sealed with water-resistant, Liberon Superior Danish Oil as standard. However, we also offer our low maintenance Diamond-Coating finish as an optional extra.

Please Note: It is always worth checking with the cemetery or natural burial site about what they allow with regards to size of memorial plaque and finish. 

Personalise your wooden grave marker

These 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.

Carved Motifs:

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. If not we have bespoke service to create and design a carving of your choice. We can even copy designs and digital artworks and logos.

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.

Dimensions & Character quantities:

Small Plaque: 20cm x 30cm (8” x 12”)

Large Plaque: 25cm x 40cm (10” x 16”)

Post: 7.5cm x 7.5cm x 60cm (3” x 3” x 24”)

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 our handmade memorial markers are made to order. 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 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. 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.

    Hello Ben,

    Apologies for the delay in sending this, I have been away.
    I just wanted to say how very pleased we are with the memorial plaque you made for my husband – beautiful, we couldn’t have wished for nicer.

    best wishes

    Dear Ben

    The plaque has just come – beautifully packaged.

    To say that I am delighted with it must be the understatement of the year. I have a feeling it will well match the lifetime of the tree and I can hardly wait to see it put in place when the planting takes place next Monday morning.

    Thank you very much indeed, not only for your fine workmanship but also for your patience in helping to get it right.

    With my best wishes and appreciation.

    Hi Ben,

    I went down to Heatherley Wood with some friends today, to visit Janet’s grave as it’s All Souls’ Day.

    The plaque was in position and looks absolutely beautiful, especially when the sunlight strikes it. It’s everything I’d hoped for. Thank you so much for the care and attention to detail you obviously took in its manufacture.

    All best,
