Wooden plaques

It can be important to the family to mark the grave so if they wish, a wooden plaque may be placed on a grave.  

Our requirements

It should be of natural wood, not painted or varnished and can be any shape as long as it’s no larger than A3 paper size overall [420 x297mm, 16.5 x11.5 inches].  The deeper the lettering and the more coats of a colourless oil such as tung, linseed or Danish oil, the better.  

Markers should be placed flat or as near to the ground as possible and not fixed to the ground.  This means a plaque can be removed to dry out, be cleaned up and be re-oiled so they last longer. And it means a strimmer/mower can pass over it when the big mow happens in the autumn.

Plaque makers

All of the following have made plaques for Barton but you don’t have to use one of them, there are other makers. Often friends and family have woodworking skills, so you can use others but please make sure they know our requirements.
