Jones Memorials has been a long-established business in Dudley for over 140 years. The Hickton family took over the business in January 2021, following the retirement of Adrien and Andy who had both worked, and owned the business for over 40 years.

Formally R L Jones & Sons which was established in 1881, Adrian and Andy had worked for R L Jones for over 26 years previously, before acquiring the firm in a management buyout in 2006.

Following the take-over by the Hickton family all out standing orders will be completed, and the workshop remains the same with existing employees carrying on the work.

The Hickton family have merged their current stone masonry business, Hickton Stone Masonry in to Jones Memorials, with both companies now running as the same. Kate Davis, long standing employee of the Hickton family has been appointed manager of Jones Memorials.

More information will be updated soon.

Jones Memorials is part of Hickton Stonemasonry which is based in Cradley Heath, West Midlands.

We aim to provide a different approach to Stonemasonry by not only providing you with a beautiful and fitting tribute for your loved one but by offering personalised arrangements throughout. If you have used one of our funeral homes before, you will know the high standard that we strive to achieve. We want all our customers to know that we are here to help, every step of the way.

We offer a range of over 200 Memorials in an array of materials and ranging from traditional and lawn headstones to cremation plaques and flat tablets.

We have included costs for all our memorials on our website and this is purposeful as we pride ourselves on being as transparent as possible, unlike many other masons we have no hidden extras and any items that are an additional cost are always displayed.

All our costs include:

Our administration

Lettering / engraving of the stone (up to 100 letters)

Up to two flower containers

Fitting of the stone to the National Association of Memorial Masons (N.A.M.M) approved fixing standard.

Prices quoted are for our standard colour granite (standard colours indicated on our Stone Colour Guide by yellow dots) our premium colour granites vary in cost (please enquire).

All prices are plus V.A.T and Do Not include any Cemetery / Church Permit Fees which vary by location.

If your memorial is still in the cemetery or churchyard we offer a range of services with regards to additional inscriptions or renovation. We offer a free no obligation quote where we will go to visit the memorial and give a full itemised quotation for all and any work required.

We offer home arrangements where we can come and discuss the memorial with you and your family in the comfort of your own home. We offer weekend and evening appointments alongside our normal daytime appointments.

Payment plans are available, depending on individual circumstances.
