Stonecraft Design was established in 1998 by Andy and Penny Irvine and has gained a reputation for being one of the finest stone memorial suppliers in the North West.
Andy Irvine trained to be a stonemason from the age of 16. Studying an apprenticeship at Bath whilst working for an old established company in Kendal. He qualified with distinctions in Letter Carving.
Today, as a skilled Master Craftsman, he has an eye for detail. In 1998 he re-established Stonecraft Design based in the heart of the Lake District offering his expertise in both personal memorials and wholesale. Stonecraft Design is family run and we pride ourselves in giving a truly personal service. Andrew still carves inscriptions by hand as this skill is very much in demand.
Over the past 20 years we have restored churches, worked with architects, building contractors and local authorities.
Our other stonemason David Wharton has a wealth of experience within the trade, he is our machine cut specialist and is skilled in the manufacture of our Slate, Sandstone and Limestone products. He will choose the right material, manufacture the memorials and letter them.
Penny, who is married to Andy, helps in all aspects of the smooth running of Stonecraft Design and Mounsey & Wheatley. She is very experienced and sympathetic at helping customers make their choices they need to make regarding a memorial, her help and advice is free and without obligation. Penny is aware that this is a difficult time for people and feels that its not just selling a memorial, its about being there for someone to talk to .
