Our stunning solid oak memorial lawn plaques.
Within our range of personalised wooden memorial plaques and benches are these stunning handcrafted wooden grave markers. The plaques 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 wooden lawn memorial plaques are made to go below ground, set beneath the grass so a lawnmower can roll over the top. You will find a lot of Green Burial sites have these rules as to what you can have as a grave marker. If you need one that has to be set into the ground then this is perfect.
These eco-friendly engraved solid oak memorial grave plaques are made from locally sourced English Oak. They feature either engraved lettering or can be painted with coloured lettering. If you want a wooden burial marker that is of superior quality, with an exceptional finish, you will not be disappointed. These really are the finest engraved wooden grave markers available on the market. Available in 2 thicknesses and 3 standard sizes.
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 plaque 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 plaque 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.
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.
Our beautiful grave marker plaques come with personalised engraving of your choice up to 100 & 200 characters. 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.

Client Review –
Today was the day I met my late wife 50 years ago in 1968 and I decided to put her ashes to the earth in a natural woodland setting in Barton Glebe and this is a photo of the place with your plaque which you did for me and my family and it looks wonderful. The people who run Arbory Trust ask me where I had it done and I will pass your details onto them. Again a big thank you from Me and my family.
