For your protection, we are members of the New Zealand Master Monumental Masons Association. To be admitted to membership, a high standard of workmanship and ethics is required. Kim Stops is a past national President of the N.Z.M.M.M.A. and has been honoured as a life member of the association. Because of the experience criteria expected to be met by members, the association confidently guarantees our installation workmanship.

You do not have to accept sub-standard workmanship. Please select your monumental mason with care.

We have a very wide range of headstones in our showrooms which are constantly changing. There is no limit to what we can make in design and colour.

If you have an unveiling date and a specific design or colour in mind, we would suggest an early inquiry so as to avoid disappointment. The lead-in time can be 2-4 months for our special design imports, but we always have a huge range of standard stock on hand.
