G H Davies and Son
Incorporating Richards Memorials
  About Us

G H Davies is one of the oldest and most successful privately owned memorial design and manufacturing companies in the country.

Memorial craftsmen since 1872, when established by George Henry Davies, the company still remains totally committed to customer satisfaction which was the very foundation on which it was built.

Our business, which prides itself on excellent quality workmanship, offers fully guaranteed work at competitive prices.

Since the days of George Henry Davies, we have specialised in an extensive range of high quality, individually designed memorials. In granite, slate, marble and stone.

Work continues to be carried out by our experienced team of local craftsmen renowned for their excellent quality over many parts of the country.

Our company has a large modern showroom and workshops which were built in Longden Road, Shrewsbury, in the mid-80’s. They are located directly opposite the site of the original stonemasons’ premises and adjacent to the main Shrewsbury cemetery.

The new facilities, combined with the latest state-of-the-art computer design system, has given the company a huge boost in the production of memorials and the ability to offer bespoke designs to customers. Renovation of existing memorials is also undertaken.

The principles of George Henry Davies were continued by his son Reg who took over the reins on the death of his father and he ran the company in the same professional and dedicated manner.

In the mid-60’s there was a merger with another successful memorial company, Richards Memorials, who served the communities to the north and east of Shropshire as well as parts of Cheshire and Staffordshire.

The skills of the joint workforce were all encompassing with both companies having highly valued long-serving stonemasons on their staff.

We are members of the The National Association
of Memorial Masons and as such, we are able to offer a 10 year guarantee on materials, workmanship and installation.

Our showroom in Longden Road, Shrewsbury, is open six days a week.

  • Monday to Friday: 9am to 5pm
  • Saturdays: 9am to 1pm
