Monuments can be made to suit your individual requirements. They can be made from local granites or imported stone. Our staff is able to assist you in creating something special for your loved one. Customized work has also been completed in marble for St Mary's Cathedral, and various other churches in W.A.
We specialize in restorations and have restored many of the monuments at the Old East Perth Cemetery for the National Trust. Our Staff have completed restoration work on many of the War Memorials throughout W. A.
When adding another inscription to an existing monument PMW staff can match existing inscriptions. Many inscriptions completed before 2000 were inscribed either by machine or by hand in lead lettering and are difficult to match. Most inscriptions are computer-generated today, they can be matched exactly. With any of the older inscriptions, it is possible to achieve a close match using computer-generated lettering. However, when an exact match is needed our staff are able to do this for you.

Many buildings have a foundation stone at the front of their building giving a history of the building for future generations. PMW has created many of these over the years. The majority of them being an Italian marble panel, with lead lettering, so that the foundation stone lasts the lifetime of the building. The Old York Townhall bears testament to the longevity of these stones. Those plaques are 100 years old and were
refurbished in (2011). Indoor plaques can be made of granite with gold leaf inscriptions as the weather will not affect their longevity.
