Markham Family Burial Ground


Our Chesterfield Showroom, Mounsey Memorials, was approached in 2012 to be part of the restoration of the Markham Family Burial Ground.

Working with Chesterfield Borough Council and members of the Markham family, not only were the existing Memorials on this historic site cleaned and restored, but further information stonework was also commissioned.

The existing Memorials were lifted from the site and removed to our factory in Worksop.

Once the existing stone was cleaned, part of the work required the addition of a further inscription in raised lead - a skill that few Memorial Masons still practice.

Following renovation, the stones were replaced in the Burial Ground along with the new information stone.

The restoration of the Markham Family Burial Ground was completed in time for the centenary ceremony which was attended by family members and local council officials.
