About Us

Eden Memorials was founded in 2011 by local monumental sculptor Shaun Wardingham, who has over 25 years experience in the memorial trade. After gaining a diploma in graphic design and lettering, Shaun served as an apprentice with J.F. Everrett and Co Memorial Masons based in South Shields, specialising in hand carved lettering. He went on to work for various companies and has carried out commissions throughout the country. With the introduction of modern sandblast machinery he has become known for his hand produced personalised etchings, many of which can be viewed in our gallery page.

All our craftsmen are qualified to NVQ level in memorial fixing and we are members of BRAMM (British Register of Accredited Memorial Masons). All of our memorials are fixed to strict standards agreed by local authorities using ground anchors, graded stainless steel dowels, solid concrete foundation and a quality buffed sub-base. We source only the highest quality marble, granite and stone using a select few suppliers from around the world.

We are based at Tyne Dock, South Shields and provide a number of services to the local and wider community, covering the cities of Newcastle and Sunderland as well as the surrounding towns of Gateshead, Washington, South Shields, Hebburn, Jarrow and beyond.

We take great pride in the reputation we have gained for providing a personal service and high quality craftsmanship to our customers.  The high standard of our work can be seen local cemeteries and churchyards.

We are able to offer a service whereby we encourage customers to be involved as much or as little as they choose during this difficult time.  Whether it be your choice or colour of stone, inscription, lettering styles or designs, we will work closely with your family throughout.  We can produce drawings and print outs to help you choose the most fitting tribute.
