Bespoke stonework demands careful planning, attention to detail and a focus on the customer’s design needs.

Our City & Guilds-approved craftsmen bring their passionate approach to all services offered and help customers in the Lewes area to choose the right memorial headstones for their loved ones.
Founded in 1933, our family-run company specialises in stonemasonry for private clients, churches, local authorities and the trade. We offer a stonework restoration service to memorials and buildings in the Lewes area, transforming worn structures with the meticulous care that they deserve.
Below we discuss just a few of the benefits of professional stonemasonry. Please contact Tilleys Stonemasons Ltd to discuss memorial headstones, bespoke stonework and our wide array of masonry services.
Enduring Strength and Weather Resistance
You will be hard-pressed to find a material in the Lewes area quite as strong as natural stone. While plaster, wood and even brickwork can suffer from serious decay due to the effects of time or water ingress, stonework remains firm in the longer term. This strength in adversity makes it the perfect solution given the unpredictable nature of the British weather, and also makes it ideal for everyday interior use.
Some of the UK’s oldest structures are made from natural stone. Dry stone walls, in particular, are known for their extensive lifespans, with the oldest reportedly standing for more than a thousand years.
Unrivalled Visual Appeal
Stonemasonry delivers historic charm, an elegant appearance and enduring appeal. We source the finest stone from all over the world, including limestone, sandstone and granite – creating memorial headstones in anything from dove grey marble to polished blue granite. Stonemasonry is also extremely versatile and can provide your interior with a beautiful surface complete with a dazzling pattern and a unique, textured finish.
Customers in Lewes often contact our stonemasons for workmanship on listed buildings and heritage sites. Our experts conduct stonework restoration in superb time and can supply bespoke stonework in the design, style and colour of your choice.
A Range of Applications
Perhaps the greatest benefit of stonemasonry is its great flexibility. Although commonly used for memorial headstones and listed buildings, stonemasonry can also be seen throughout properties in Lewes and the surrounding areas. Granite, for example, is especially resilient to high temperatures, making it an excellent choice for kitchen worktops and fireplace mantels. From elegant marble bathroom surfaces to limestone plaques, our stonemasons perform reliably and offer the relevant guarantees for your continued peace of mind.
