“In this day and age, it’s hard to find a company you can trust. Swales In The Dales was recommended to me by a friend, and now I know why – the quality of service I received was outstanding. Keep up the good work!”

Jennifer Layfield, Ilkley, West Yorkshire

“We couldn't have asked for a more personal and sensitive service when Choosing a cremation tablet for our son. It was a smooth process from discussing size of stone and the font that we wanted. All was personally delivered in time for Christmas. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Chris again.”


Catherine Polkinghorne.

"Swales in the Dales recently hand engraved a house number and coloured with gold leaf on a stone wall at the entrance to our property.

The number had to match the existing house name on the wall. It was a pleasure to deal with Chris Swales and we valued the advise he gave on positioning. We are delighted with the result and with the personal, efficient and professional service at a very reasonable price."

Gwen and Mike Pilling Ilkley, West Yorkshire

“Swales in the Dales is a professional company that walked us through the difficult decision of choosing a headstone for our baby. Chris is a true craftsman, producing a naturally carved headstone for us within weeks. We would highly recommend this company for producing a beautiful headstone for your loved one.”


Mathew and Victoria Richardson.
