If you’re looking for a beautifully made engraved wooden memorial cross, our stunning handcrafted personalised oak crosses are made to order right here in our Surrey Hills workshop with considerable care and attention to detail. You will not be disappointed with the quality. They feature beautifully carved lettering and even bespoke carved motifs.
These eco-friendly oak burial marker crosses are constructed from solid Superior Grade English Oak and put together, by hand, to order, using traditional joinery techniques. The oak plaque itself is already joined to the post using a beautiful carved fitted joint and plugged screw holes. The cross bar measures 30cm in width or 50cm wide for the premium, giving you lots of room for your personalised engraved message.
These stunning oak burial crosses are ideal as green burial markers, as an alternative to the usual headstone or if you want something more natural. They also work really well to mark the resting place of beloved pets.
Our oak memorial crosses come in two thicknesses. A standard thickness of 4.5cm thick or a very heavy duty 7.5cm thick. The oak post section of the oak cross is supplied 100cm long in total, giving you at least 30cm to be secured into the ground, making it very secure once in place. And being made from solid Oak, it will last many many years.
Your chosen memorial cross comes with your own personalised engraving – up to 50 characters across the T-Bar. If you require further lettering, you can add the 100 characters option, further engraving can be added if you want to have a longer message.
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.
As with everything we do here at Make Me Something Special, we have spent the time researching and sourcing the perfect materials available. Each oak memorial cross is handmade from one piece of Air Dried Superior Grade English Oak. This Timber is perfectly seasoned and adjusted for outdoor conditions. You can choose to leave your cross untreated, finished in Superior Danish Oil or our low maintenance Diamond Coating finish. If you choose untreated your product will weather to a pale silver more quickly. Danish Oil will not only treat the timber but also bring out the timbers natural colour. This has a UV filter to protect the timber but it does require regular upkeep. 2 – 4 times a year to keep it looking its best. Diamond Coating is more glossy but a lot more harder wearing and only requires a top up once a year, however this depend on the weather and where the product is placed. We would recommend twice a year if you want full protection. Top up kits can be ordered over the phone or on our website – see here.
